I usually play the center is 3pts. and the ends are 1pt. Play to 21. You can play all points count or cancellation. You can also play to hit 21 exact or not. If you have to hit 21 exact, it may be a bit more challenging, because if you go over, you have to go back to 15. To each their own. Stand back 15 ft. to toss.
I am looking fro information for a game often referred to in Lancaster County as "Amish Rings". Basically each person tries to throw 3 iron or steel rings at roughly a 4 foot post to get a "ringer". As a kid in the 70's and 80's my Dad and Uncles had this games. I would like to have rings made for me. Does anybody have any specs at all on this game? Thank you.
Thanks for the response. I know what quoits are as I have my own set that I purchased in Ephrata, PA. This game uses iron or steel rods maybe 1/2 inch in diameter bent and welded into 10 to 11 inch diameter hoops and tossed over a taller post closer to ring toss than quoits as only 1 point is awarded for a "ringer". It may very well be a variation of quoits, but I was looking to have my own set made. I just wondered if anybody knew of the game or had their own set. Thanks.
