Often mistaken for sausages cooked inside a Yorkshire pudding mixture, Toad in the Hole is actually an ancient game played predominantly in East Sussex.

Players are required to do just one thing: throw brass coins (toads), into a hole (hole), then claim the glory (glory) from their peers.

Scheiffer meets Mike

Scheiffer (and a few friends) speaks to Toad in the Hole expert Mike Hole (yep that’s his real name)

 

and does his best to understand why the people of Lewes spend so long throwing coins at a table in the name of sport.

An introduction to Toad in the Hole

With the help of his friends Gordon, John, and Jack,

Training begins

Scheiffer meets his sensei, and learns that throwing toads doesn’t necessarily mean

a call to the RSPCA.

The final touches

Scheiffer gathers all the help he can. From both inside, and outside his head.

Competition day

Scheiffer is moments from victory as he reaches his finale,

and only three or four people might stand in his way.
