The following game we call weekend rules is being played more often in back yards, basements and poolside. It’s loads of fun and allows every member of the family to be competitive. You can change the amount of throws per round and the amount of points to win to suit your style.
- Weekend Rules
- Each player (2 or more) gets ten throws per round. (First to last player is considered a round)
- A single hit or “Ting” means the ring hits the hook once is worth one point.
- A double hit or “Ting” means the ring hits the hook two or more times on the same throw and is called a “Nassau” is worth three points.
- When the ring is hooked it’s a “Bimini” and is worth five points.
- Add up the total score of the ten throws and record it. Keep adding the totals per round until there is a winner.
Object Of The Game First player to 100 points (or predetermined amount) is the winner. Each player will have the same amount of throws regardless of who goes first. Each round must be completed. In the case of two or more players reaching 100 points, the highest score wins. In the event of a tie, these players play until one player wins a round.
It’s a great way to spend an afternoon with friends and family or make it the whole weekend. Load up the cooler, put on the barbecue and play to 1000, 5000, or even 10000 points!.
How to Set Up
It's as easy as 1, 2, 3
1 Find a good spot
The plaque will go on a wall, and the string will hang from the ceiling. So, find a place where you can securely attach the plaque and have enough space to throw the ring.
2 Attach the Plaque and the Ring
Using the included hardware, attach the plaque to the wall at shoulder height, and attach the ring to the ceiling. See the diagram below.
3 Find a good spot
Stand back, grab the ring and swing it so it lands on the hook. If you throw it slightly left or right, it will help the ring land.
see below for the preferred dimensions
This is the typical setup with 8' ceilings, but depending on ceiling height, your game might be different.
- The hook should be 5’ up the wall.
- The string should be 5’9” away from the wall.
- The ring should be 18” from the floor when hanging at rest.
