Skee-ball’s New Jersey roots

Today is a sad day in New Jersey history: Joseph Fourestier Simpson passed away on June 17, 1930 in Vineland, New Jersey. You may not recognize his name, but you’ve probably played the game he created: skee-ball. According to NJTV, the game was invented in Vineland and he patented it in 1908. He had a hard time marketing it and five years later Jonathan Dickson Este bought the rights to the game and installed two alleys in a bar in Princeton and later opened one across from the Million Dollar Pier in AC (at that time, the lanes were 32 feet long, now they are usually 14 feet).

It might as well have been an inflatable unicorn or a bellyboard from the 5 & 10, something parents used to push tykes into waves on without having to worry about the kid getting hit, or hitting someone else, with a heavy fiberglass projectile.
