How to Make Shuffleboard Adjustments

How to Make Shuffleboard Adjustments 0

When you've got a new shuffleboard, there are three important adjustments you'll need to make to your table to ensure optimal playing and accuracy for tournament play.

1. Check the legs: Make sure they're level and even to avoid your puck sliding to one side.
2. Sway: This helps control the pucks speed. You'll want to raise up the end of the table just a little bit. This keeps the pucks from coming off the end of the table for more accurate play.
3. Climate: The hardware under the table keeps the playing surface at the right curve to keep your puck in the playing area.
You can hear more about these adjustments explained by Cris Gould in this Legacy Video.

Features of a Quality Shuffleboard

Features of a Quality Shuffleboard 0

At Legacy Billiards, we’re committed to exceeding your expectations in every product category we offer. In our shuffleboard line, we ensure that each product is carefully built every step of the way.
 
We start by using the highest quality components and materials available.  We use a polymer poured top on all surfaces of our shuffleboard tables. The advantage of using polymer is that during the manufacturing process, air cannot be trapped underneath the polymer. If an air pocket formed on the surface of the shuffleboard, and something like a puck were to fall on it, the surface would crack and cause damage to the shuffleboard itself.
 
All of our poured surface playfields come with a lifetime warranty to ensure that cracking will not end the life of your shuffleboard. We thoroughly test each playfield by dropping pucks to make sure no air is underneath and no air pockets have been formed.
 
How to Maintain Your Shuffleboard

Shuffleboard tables are one of the most exciting product categories we have in our game room furniture line. We offer quality-built shuffleboards in several sizes from 9-foot to 16-foot.

When purchasing a shuffleboard table it’s important to take proper maintenance and care into consideration. If you want to get the most from your shuffleboard table, you’ll need to regularly apply shuffleboard wax on the play surface.

Legacy offers two different products that will maximize playability and extend the life of your shuffleboard table: Legacy’s Black Ice Shuffleboard Wax and Black Ice Silicone Spray.

Often the process of applying wax to the table is misunderstood, but it’s actually a very simple procedure that takes only a few minutes if done properly. First spray Silicone Spray to the table surface and let it sit for a few minutes. Then, apply the wax to the table.

Check out our shuffleboard maintenance video guide for a demonstration on how to apply silicone spray and wax to your shuffleboard.

How to Score A Game of Tabletop Shuffleboard 0

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.
