NGG is a great game, although having just one pin it does get a bit boring and sometimes sits for a few weeks without a play. It isn't easy like some games and the 2 gopehers provide some amusing comments. Guests seem to like it. I have a sports theme in the room and my wife liked the looks of it (seal of approval) so it came home.
I have a few other pics of the shuffleboard posted in another Game Room Equipment thread. The cabinet was built by me and it went through a couple of revisions before I had it perfected. I had the playing board built by National Shuffleboard in Goderich, Ontario, Canada. The playing surface is 11' x 2' and is 3" thick solid maple. That width was the widest that I could have it made due to the width of the planer being used. I drove there myself and painted the circles and lines myself before they laid on the final coat of resin.
If you have ever seen the winter sport of Curling, that is what we play on it with the rings. To play a standard shuffle game we can use the lines. In Curling the objective is to be closest to the middle of the ring after the last rock is thrown. You count 1 point for each rock that is closer to the middle that your opponents clostest rock. It's fun because you might put up a center guard with your first rock then try to hide behind it. Take outs and bump backs are part of the strategy. We use the bumpers most times but can also play without them. Thanks for looking.
