20’s 20’s 20’s

To win at Crokinole takes practice, practice, practice and playing, playing, playing.

Practicing 20’s is a great way to improve your game quickly. Each time you have an open board and you sink a 20 it puts pressure on your opponent to match your 20. One extra made 20 can be the difference between a win or a loss.

I suggest starting by shooting 100 discs ten at a time and writing down the number of shots you make versus the total of the 10 shots attempted, example 5-10. This will give you an easy way to calculate your made percentage of the total made of the 100 shots. Example: 47 made out of 100 = 47%.

As you shoot  each time, make sure you follow through with your finger pointing to the hole and not to the left or right.  Shooting and coming up short of the hole can be very frustrating  when you have an open board. It is better, in my opinion, to leave it long than to come up short on a open 20 shot.

So, as you practice your 20’s remember that every 20 made get’s you that much closer to a win.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The “One Cheek” Rule

From time to time a player needs to flick a disc from one side of their quadrant or the other. This is where the “One Cheek” rule comes in to play.  Because you cannot move your chair, once the game begins, you can only move your rear end from one side of the chair to the other.  One ” cheek” of your rear end must remain on the chair, even if it is only part of that cheek.  The chair legs must remain on the floor, they must not lean the chair to get to the shot. So, the next time you go for that edge shot of your quadrant remember the “One Cheek” rule.

Crokinole Play

While playing, something comes up that was not covered in the General Rules on our website. A good example was a question a visitor, to our website, asked. What happens when a disc goes off the playing surface in to the ” gutter”  and bounces back on to the playing surface making contact with one or more other discs?” Per the World Crokinole Championship rules, [Read more…]
