We found out about Pitch & Plakks minigolf course toy back in May and backed the Kickstarter to get the game made.

Pitch & Plakks will be released in November and we're looking forward to receiving this early Christmas present.

You can pre-order the game - with a discount - online now.

We love playing minigolf, outdoors and indoors - whether it's a full size course, a video game or a board game we're super competitive! It'll be interesting to see who wins our games - and how many arguments we'll have while playing it...

Pitch & Plakks is the second game from the team at Plakks after they successfully launched the Plakks football game in 2019.

Putt-In-Play - a 1930's minigolf toy

We love the look of this 1930's parlor golf putting game made by Gibbs Toys of Canton, Ohio, USA.

The wooden set originally consisted of the 9-holes, two wooden shafted 5 1/2" putters with metal heads, six steel golf balls, rules, blank score cards and a golf bag.

We've got a number of minigolf toys, games and board games in the Crazy Golf Museum and recently looked at some examples of Parlor Golf games from the 1930's.

The new Kickstarter campaign for the Pitch & Plakks mini golf board game launched yesterday, 9th June, and has already received 330 backers and more than doubled the original pledge goal! It’s superb to see so many people interested in playing the new minigolf game.

Putt-In-Play by Gibbs Toys, circa 1930

A look at a Parlor Golf putting game from the 1930s.


We love finding and showcasing games, interesting items, ephemera, stories and history from the world of minigolf.


The Crazy Golf Museum is home to a number of fun, old and interesting items.


Yesterday I posted about the Parlor Golf game made by Parlor Golf MFGR. Co. of La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA in the USA.

Putt-In-Play


Today's putting game for Minigolf Monday is the Putt-In-Play set by Gibbs Toys of Canton, Ohio, USA.

It's ace to look back at historic items from days gone by. The Putt-In-Play layout looks quite similar to Beton and Eternit types of miniature golf that were created in the 1950s and are still very popular in Continental Europe.

Parlor Golf

A look at a minigolf game from 1930.


The Crazy Golf Museum is home to a number of interesting, fun and old items from the world of miniature golf.

One such item that ticks all three boxes is this, Parlor Golf from 1930. The game was made by Parlor Golf MFGR. Co. of La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA.

Parlor Golf, 1930

The set instructs players on how to create an 18-hole course by using the four wooden base plates and five obstacles.

By making the holes shorter and varying the placement of the obstacles you can create even more combinations.

I was lucky enough to find a copy of the brilliant Crazy Golf Machine Board Game by Waddingtons for just £1 at a car boot sale at Stonham Barns a few years ago. It was an absolute bargain.

It's a superb board game and a lot of fun to play. The set was created in 1995 and comes with all you need to play a round, from 'clubs' to balls and a whole host of crazy obstacles to putt through.

I really need to have another play of it. The last time I had a round on it was in July 2016 when I faced-off against my friend and minigolf rival Steve Lovell.

We played using the version of the game donated to The Crazy Golf Museum by another friend and fellow Crazy Golfer Gareth Holmes as the version from the car boot sale was incomplete.

In the two round match, Steve won with a total score of 37 to 38 over 18-holes. Round one was 19 to 20 in my favour, while Steve picked up the win in game two 17 to 19.

The Golferholics Board Game - an 18-hole Golf Game

On our recent minigolf meet-up in Dorridge my mate and BIG miniature golf enthusiast Paul 'Johnson Paul Johnson' Johnson gave me a Chad Valley Miniature Golf set from the 1960's. He also gave me a board game from the 1990's - The Golferholics Board Game.
