Crokinole featured at PAX East

As "long-time" readers of KnipsBrat may remember, I (re)discovered Crokinole by way of Penny Arcade. They held their east coast exposition Apr 6-8, 2012 in Boston.

Culminating a weekend of gaming madness, they capped their Omegathon (16 team multi-game tournament) with a match of Crokinole. The final round was recorded and currently available at ``_ (jump to 7:40 to get to the instructions). The "omeganauts" were very new to crokinol e (and weren't very good) and the rules were definitely not NCA standard rules, but it was entertaining to see crokinole so prominently featured.

Couple of side notes: I wonder who made that board, and can anyone confirm that the match was filmed with an overhead GoPro HD?
