How to play – the rules:
Construct the peg board
Set out pitch, this should be about 5x1 metres with the start line pegged into the ground about 5 Metres/paces away from the quoits board. As this is a game of fun and doesn’t have strict rules then you can adjust this to suit younger players or players of different abilities.
Ensure the lowest score is nearest the start line.
Choose who or what team goes first by flipping a coin.
The first team/player then throws all the quoits and the score is taken when this player has finished their go. The next player then takes their turn and so on throwing all the quoits and taking a note of the score.
Scoring is mainly self-explanatory with the scores marked on the peg board, the only exception to this is if the player hoops two or more on the centre peg. If the player hoops two on the centre peg than the score for this peg only is doubled and addred to the score, if however they get three then the score for this peg is trebled. Guess what happens if the player manages to get all four on the centre peg… That’s right, you’ve got it, it gets quadrupled!
