Our names are Jack & Sue Hahn and we started our game board and marble business
in 1983 when Jack made the first Chinese Checker boards to sell at a craft show Sue
was doing with her off loom weavings. They sold and orders were taken and soon a
new business was born. Over the years we have experimented with different materials
and finishes for our games and developed our unique brightly colored boards and Tye
Dyes that set us apart. Most of our game boards are made of Pine, which is drilled,
finely sanded, and stained either DARK (Red Mahogany), MEDIUM (Special Walnut) or
LIGHT (Golden Oak), They are then finished with three coats of water based polyurethane. Most
of the games are also available in the following colors: RED, YELLOW, TURQUOISE
BLUE, ORANGE, HOT PINK, PURPLE, GREEN & BLACK.
We also do them in
an assortment of hardwoods depending on demand and availability.
business evolved along with our games, when we first started we just bought the standard
6 colors of game marbles. Then everyone kept asking if we had anything else, so we
looked and found the factories up in WV and went on a road trip. This was back in
1984 and we established a working relationship with the all the various places that
were operating at that time. Over the years we got hold of a lot of small runs and
odds & ends that never were released to the public. We labeled every box with
where we got it and the year we got them. We've been organizing lately and finding
some great stuff that I'll add to the site as I have time to photograph and post.
we do not have a shop for the public to visit we do a number of Art & Craft Shows
with our games and sun catchers throughout the year and we encourage you to check
our show schedule and drop by a show and say Hello.
