does anybody make round slap-sticks that are slightly smoothed off to stop them rolling along the playboard ?

B&Q and Homebase both sell dowel rod and also sandpaper.

If you want a round slap stick may I suggest you try the methode Lyonaise which is to make two cuts down the length of the stick. This makes four pieces that slap in all directions.
You may be able to buy a shaped stick from a specialist kitchen utensil shop. There is a sort thin rolling pin they use. Known as a French rolling pin.

If Mikey can't manage a single cut in a piece of dowel I imagine he will find it even more daunting to attempt two cuts at right-angles into a shaped rolling pin!

The point I was making Mikey is that you don't need to find someone making flattened round slapsticks. If you have a round one (which presumably you have tried) then all you need is sandpaper to flatten it a bit. I'm sure that you could manage that.

Anyway I'll post a slapstick making method in the Workshop section which I'm sure would not be beyond your ability. Not a round one though.
