  • How does one win a game of shuffleboard?

    Players play until an agreed upon score, typically fifteen or twenty-one.  It should be noted that scores for each round are not official until the entire round is finished and scores have been tallied.

  • 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.

  • How to Score A Game of Tabletop Shuffleboard

    A shuffleboard is a great addition to a home game room and you can play teams so everyone can get in on the fun.

    Tabletop games consist of a series of frames, oftentimes in a best-of-three or best-of-five format. The length of each part of the series will depend on if you are playing singles or doubles.

    Here is a quick tutorial on keeping score in a game of shuffleboard:

    The scoring area is divided in to three sections:
    · Closest to the edge (3 points)
    · Short Middle section (2 points)
    · Long Middle section (1 point)

    A puck hanging over the edge of the table is worth 4 points.

    After all the pucks have been shot by taking alternating turns, the points are added up. First check to see which player/team has a puck closest to the edge. Points are awarded for each puck that has gone farther than the opponents best shot. For example, if a blue puck is closest to the edge and sitting in the three-point section and a red puck is in the two-point section, the blue player will earn three points for the round and the red player will earn none.

    In a singles match, the first player to earn 11 points wins the frame. A doubles team must earn 21 points to win the frame.
