Legend has it that Captain Cook used this game nightly to relax with his fellow shipmates. He spent so much time playing the game, it came to be known as The Captain's Mistress. The cabinet is crafted with brass fittings, burl wood inlay on top, mitered joints and a lustrous, stained finish. Get 4 balls in a row (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) to win! At game's end, pull the bottom retaining plank and the hardwood balls will drop back into the cabinet.
