Axe Throwing


  • 6 points for the bullseye

  • 4 points for the 2nd ring

  • 3 points for the 3rd ring

  • 2 points for the 4th ring 

  • 1 point for the 5th ring

  • 10 points for the blue balls, also known as the kill shot

    • ONLY AVAILABLE ON THE 10th AND FINAL ROUND, otherwise blue balls are worth 1 point.

Technicalities include:

  • Touching the line

    • If the axe is in two rings simultaneously, then the player is awarded the points of the higher valued ring.

  • Stick and Stay

    • The axe must remain in the target for the throw to count. If the axe falls out before the axe is retrieved, then the throw will be counted as 0 points.
