Bar Skittles HC196

This traditional game is also known as Devil Amongst the Tailors when in 1783 some theatregoers and tailors rioted at the Theatre Royal over a play that the tailors thought insulting. The Army was called in to stop the riot. The way they did this was compared to the game where the wooden ball ploughs through the skittles.
