About this objectThis Bagatelle Board was disovered in the whaler's accommodation block, Nybrakka, in Grytviken. Nails hammered into the board form 12 'baskets' which are worth various scores from 5 to 100. The back of the board features a hand-drawn target and is covered in small holes. It is possible that the board was used as a make-shift dart board, perhaps by the military when they were using the building.
