Shuffleboard was something that I could hardly spell, let alone play. But that’s just me. For a Romanian photojournalism student, the game was as foreign as the name of my country’s capital, Bucharest, would be for any average American. To most MU students, this game is as close to a “pastime” as you get in a dingy bar around here. Columbia is not famous for bar games. There are only a few places where people can play shuffleboard.
