1970s Table Hockey GameInventions_TableHockey_Teal_14x11 $44
Table hockey was invented in 1932 by Torontonian Donald H. Munro Sr. Christmas was coming and the depression was raging. Like many during this period, money was tight for Munro. So with the help of his wife and three kids, they gathered together scraps of wood and wire and built a tabletop game that looked more like a pinball game at the beginning than what millions of kids have come to know as a table hockey game. He later took the game into the Eaton's department store in Toronto where it became an instant hit and the rest is history.
The Inspiration Behind our 1970s Table Hockey Game Art Print
Like millions of kids in Canada and around the world, I grew up with a table hockey game. The tournaments between my brothers, cousins, and friends were legendary and often heated. Hockey was a game we played on the ice and lived in miniature at home. Every table game we played was to win the Stanley Cup in our minds. It was only natural that someday I was going to immortalize the game in some way. So here it is... a table hockey print featuring a photo-illustration of a replica of the model that took a beating for hours in our home.
