HOW TO PLAY SHUFFLE BOARD
Common Shuffleboard Game Rules
The rules usually require that you alternately take turns sliding, by hand, all 4 of your weights against the ones from your opponent. Try to make it to the highest scoring area on the shuffleboard without falling off the end of the board or into the alley.
In order to earn points your weights need to be the farthest down the board. Some of the strategy and fun really comes into play when you knock off your opponents' weights, outdistance them or use your weights to protect your other highest scoring weights.
Usually the most common games are played either to 15 or 21 points. The sections below cover the shuffleboard game rules for the most famous (and fun) shuffleboard games. We hope you find these game rules helpful for enjoyment of your McClure Shuffleboard table.
Shuffleboard Game Rules Scoring:
EXAMPLE: If a Red Weight is the most distant Weight from the playing end at the completion of a round, Red becomes the winner of the round, and only Red can score. To determine Red’s score, total the value of each Red Weight that lies ahead of the leading Blue Weight. Red Weights which are either blocked or which lie behind the leading Blue Weight are not scored. If there are no Blue Weights remaining on the board, all remaining Red Weights are scored.
