How does one keep score when playing shuffleboard?

Only one player scores at the end of each round.  The player that scores is the one whose disks are furthest down the table.  Only the disks between the edge of the table and the opponents furthest disk are counted.  A disk overhanging the edge of the table scores four points.  Disks that are completely inside a scoring area (3, 2, or 1) score the point value associated with that area (three points, two points, or one point).  Disks that are touching a line receive points from the lower scoring area (for example, if a disk is mostly in the scoring area marked 3 but is touching the line for 2, it receives two points).

For actually recording the score, pencil and paper can be used, or a variety of different “scoring units” are available in different styles.  Some are simple sliding beads not unlike an abacus, and others are electronic units.
