Each game is carefully crafted from a slice of Colorado's Aspen tree's. Every tree has died of natural causes. No live trees are cut. I sand the ends very smooth, and then apply a light stain to bring out the natural colors of Colorado's beautiful quaking Aspen trees. I then apply a clear coat to protect against water, and give each one a beautiful gloss. There are 15 holes that are evenly spaced out to form a triangle. Instructions for the game, and 15 pegs come with your purchase. There are also felt pads on the bottom of each to protect furniture. These would make great stocking stuffers, and gifts for Christmas!
