Horseshoes is a great classic game for all ages!
And this set can be played indoors and outdoors!
The perfect activity for a backyard barbeque, a family reunion, camping trips, picnics and more.
And this set can be played indoors as well! Perfect for rainy days and indoor family fun!
To set up the game outside, stakes should be driven into the ground about 40 feet apart and angled slightly towards each other.
The stakes should stick out of the ground about 12 inches.
If you are playing inside, set the two plastic pegs about 40 feet apart on a smooth surface.
When tossing horseshoes, the National Horseshoe Pitchers Association states that the foul line should be 27-37 feet away from the stake.
How to play:
To play, flip a coin. The winner goes first.
Each person tosses two horseshoes per inning, followed by his opponent.
Once both players have tossed their shoes, scoring begins.
Any shoe within 6 inches of the peg/stake gets one point.
If a player gets a "ringer", or a shoe that completely circles the stake/peg, that player gets three points.
If one player gets a ringer and has his other shoe closer to the peg/stake than his opponent, that player would be awarded a total of four points.
During game play, a tournament consists of 50 points, while a regular game contains 21 points.
Set includes 2 red horseshoes, 2 blue horseshoes, 2 rubber mats, 2 plastic pegs and 2 plastic stakes.
Made from rubber and plastic.
