Shove Halfpenny (Shove Ha’Penny)
Shove Ha’Penny is a fun family orientated pub game from the UK (Wikipedia) . Play takes place on a board with the objective being to ‘shove’ coins such that they come to a halt between the parallel lines painted on the board. The game can be played by 1 or 2 players (or teams) with play lasting a matter of seconds, minutes or even hours, as desired (the game will automatically save when the phone is used for other purposes and resume where it left off).
A rolling score is maintained along with an indication of the efficiency of each player (expressed as a percentage of the coins they have scored with). Different coins can be chosen (UK, US and European) and a full set of rules (this is a simple game) are included.
In case there is any doubt, scoring coins are marked with a green blob, and non scoring with red. Behind the game a sophisticated physics engine gives play a surprisingly realistic element to gameplay.
