Our Shove Tuppence board is beautifully crafted from side-pressed bamboo which produces a stunning end grain and pattern. Every board is sanded and oiled by hand with three coats of toy-safe Danish Oil to provide a long-lasting finish and further enhances the beauty of the bamboo wood.
Bamboo is robust, durable and easy to maintain. It is the fastest growing plant on the planet (growing up to a metre a day in tropical regions), bamboo is the sustainable option. Bamboo wood is as hard as oak and will give a lifetime of service.

Shove Tuppence is also known as Shove Ha'penny. Shove Ha’penny was once known as Shoffe-Grote, Slype Groat and Slide-Thrift. The name of the game evolves as the coins evolve but the game stays the same.
Shove Tuppence is a fabulous family game, which can provide a welcome break from computer games and TV. All the family can play, chat, laugh and will soon get hooked. Two players or teams compete against one another.
Playing the game.
Two players or teams compete against one another. A number of parallel lines or grooves run horizontally across the board. The spaces between the lines are called the "beds". Five Tuppences are placed one-by-one at one end of the board slightly protruding over the edge and are shoved forward toward scoring lines, with a blow from the palm of the hand. Each team needs to position their coins in each of the beds in successive turns to win - full instructions are included with every Shove Tuppence board.
