There are so many games to play once you've got your head wrapped around throwing an axe! Before you come out, it might be helpful if you familiarize yourself with the rules of some of these games so you don't have to read them when you get here. The same rules will be provided in print at each lane for you to reference.
Teams will take turns throwing, with 3 opportunities to make the axe stick. Whichever numbered ring the axe sticks dictates where you are allowed to place your "x" or "o". If those spots are already taken, then the play moves on to the next team. First one to get 3 in a row wins.
Players start by picking their number assignment. It must correspond to a number on the target (B, 4, 3, 2, or 1)
Each player starts with 3 lives. Players start by aiming for their own number assignments. Once they have hit their own number twice they become a "killer." When a "killer" hits the number of a player on the opposing team, that player loses a life. The game ends when one team eliminates all players on the opposing team.
Players alternate turns and proceed left to right. 1, 2, 3, 4, B, 4, 3, 2, 1. Each player throws until they miss their targeted space. Once they do not stick the axe or does not stick it in the appropriate zone, it is the next players turn.
Players get two chances to stick the axe in the appropriate zone. Players can "chance" their progress with a third throw on any turn. If the axe does not stick or player misses on the third throw, all progress is lost and the player starts over.
