There is a persistent legend that Captain Cook used this game nightly to relax with his fellow shipmates. He spent so much time playing the game, it became known as The Captain’s Mistress. The object of the game is simple, yet the strategies are endless. Players try to line up four of their hardwood rounds in a row, either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. At game’s end, pull the bottom gangplank and the hardwood rounds drop back into the cabinet.
