You’ve seen tabletop football and hockey, but what about curling?
The Team Shuster Gold Medal Tabletop Curling Set is set to hit TJ Maxx stores this fall, as first reported by the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
The game is marketed as “developed and endorsed” by the U.S. Olympic men’s curling team of John Shuster, Tyler George, Matt Hamilton, John Landsteiner and Joe Polo that made a stunning run to gold in PyeongChang.
The game features little stones that curl and is similar to shuffleboard, plus a curling 101 guidebook.
The idea was hatched by an Ambassador Games employee in Hong Kong shortly after the Olympics.
Team Shuster competed two weeks ago for the first time since PyeongChang and has at least four events planned through the end of October.
The return followed a whirlwind six months that included honors at Minnesota sports events and golf tournaments, including meeting Jack Nicklaus. Shuster was invited to an April White House state dinner. Hamilton got his own bobblehead.
George has left the team for an indefinite break from the sport, replaced by veteran Chris Plys. It was Plys who replaced Shuster in the lineup at the 2010 Olympics, when Shuster was benched after an 0-4 start.
