Bunnock "The Game of Bones"

Posted Kevin's 2018 Adventure

Ever heard of Bunnock or the "Game of Bones" before? While these terms might not be common knowledge for the most of us, in the community of Macklin, Bunnock has been a part of their identity since the arrival of the first settlers in the area!

For the past 26 years, Macklin has celebrated Bunnock every August long weekend, inviting the world to take part in this unique game of bones. 

Played with "horse ankle bones", Bunnock attracts thousands of people to the area and over 320 teams of four to this championship tournament! I really enjoyed trying it out myself and can't wait to sign up to play again next year!
