The amount of play it gets all depends on you. It’s a simple but highly competitive game with a massive skill ceiling and over a century of dedicated playtesting. It’s gone through the wringer in terms of standing up over time.
I’m a casual Crokinole player and frankly haven’t even played in years, but have enough games under my belt to know I want to invest in something a little finer if and when I do. But that KS offering is a good one, really seems to be a serious bang for the buck, particularly if you’re in the US.
I think in general you’re going to face that kind of shipping when you’re outside North America. It has a global following, but kind of just peppered all over the place outside of Canada and the US. You might find a decent maker within Europe at least?
For what it’s worth, some recent discussion on BGG suggests that while it’s a decent price for a “starter” board you’ll almost certainly want to spend more on a good one if you actually get into the game.
