The New & Lively Game of Squails


The late 19th century saw the development of a number of unique games, and games derived from other popular games. The game of Squails probably developed after the then-popular game of Crokinole. In squails, players use the heels of their hands to propel round disks toward a central target disk, in efforts to score points. D.B. Brooks & Brother's box cover illustration, for "The New & Lively Game of Squails" shows a family playing the game.
