A short history of Compendia

Compendia Traditional Games is owned and run by the Toogood family. We live and work in Greenwich and Deptford (south east London, UK).

Compendia milestones
In 1996 we opened a shop in Greenwich Market selling traditional games and puzzles.We were open every day, except Christmas days and Boxing days.

In 2003 we launched our website selling pretty much everything we stocked in the shop, which increased trade significantly.

In 2005 the guys who made our carrom boards moved to Spain so after a few intensive lessons we decide to buy them out and make our own, which we still do.

In January 2013 we closed down our shop but we continue to trade on-line.

We continue to make some very fine carrom boards and a few other games like shove ha'penny.
