Our story

Originally from South, Africa, my husband and I have been living in the UK for the last 16+ years. 

Living in the UK, one of the things I missed from back in South Africa is the much loved game called “Vingerbord” (Fingerboard). This is a game we played back in the 80’s as children. The thing I remember most is that not all families owned such a game, and our family didn’t have one either. So when we visited a family that had a board (we knew who did), we always asked them to bring out the “Vingerbord” so that we can play. And play we did!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been trying to buy a proper “Vingerbord” – made like those we played on as children. We started by making our own by doing research, through trial & error and fine-tuning it into a board we would like to buy. After we made our own board, we had so much interest and requests from friends to make this available commercially and just like that, Flick was born. We wanted to make this accessible to families in the UK and Europe. 

For those who don’t know the game, the premise of “Vingerboard” is simple, making this a game that even the youngest family members can enjoy. This board game resembles the game of pool. Just like a pool table the board has pockets. Your shooter discs are used in similar way to a cue ball. Players take turns flicking a shooter disc to sink their team’s colour discs. The first player/team to sink all of their colour discs and then the blue disc, wins the game.

My husband and I make these boards in our free time, building it from scratch with love. So this is by no means a mass produced board. We put a lot of time, care and attention into each and every board, using only the best materials we can find.  As it is handmade, each board feels organic and is completely unique with character. We even make the playing pieces by hand as this is not something you are able to buy in the UK.

Our boards


Handmade in the UK

As it is handmade, each board feels organic and is completely unique with character. We use only the best quality materials to hand-make each board; including the playing pieces / goons.


Ready to Play

Each Flick board comes pre-waxed and -polished, so apart from dusting / wiping it down you do not need to treat the surface.


Attention to Detail

With rounded edges and corners, hardwood splines and built-in recessed bumpers; great care and attention to detail is put into every board we make.
