How to Play, How to Win

Table shuffleboard is also known as indoor shuffleboard. It’s a game in which players push metal weights down a long smooth table made from wood – into a scoring area at the other end of the table.

The players shoot directly with the hands, in contrast with the deck shuffleboard where players use cue sticks. Tables can be made of different wood finishes to go with your décor.

How to Play Indoor Shuffleboard 

There are several ways to play indoor shuffleboard, such as:

The most common shuffleboard table game is the Knock Off that you can play against another challenger or a two- player team. The goal is to knock your opponent’s ‘quoits’ off the board while keeping yours on the board. A ‘turn’ is when every player alternates in shuffling four metal quoits down the table.

Here’s the challenge:

The score is determined by where the quoit ends up.

A shuffleboard table is very slick and the quoit slides extremely easily. A skillful player gets good at controlling the speed and direction of the quoit so that it stops moving exactly where he wants it to!

Basic Shuffleboard Rules and Strategy

The first line is foul, and when the quoit fails to reach it or lands on the line, it tallies as zero. Anything between this line and the second one is one point. Between line two and three, it counts as two points. Amid line three and the back edge of the table, it is three points. In case the quoit hangs off the table’s back edge and fails to fall off, it is referred to as a hanger, and that is worth 4 points.

It is essential to note that a quoit ought to be entirely beyond a scoring line to count for that specific point value. Equipment such as the Legacy Billiards brand electronic scoring board unit aids in calculating the score during a game. If any section of the quoit is on the line, it tallies as one point less.
