A Variety of Axe Throwing Games
Around the World
Around the World is a popular axe throwing game that takes teamwork to win. Each team must hit every number on the board from low to high, in order, and then again in reverse, in reverse order. In other words, each team must hit a 1, 2, 3, 4, B, 4, 3, 2, 1, K. First team to complete the loop wins.
Traditionally this game is played to exactly 21, but can be played just as easily to “X.” What sets this game apart is the unique scoring method. After one player from each team throws, the lower score is subtracted from the higher score and the difference is awarded to the team with the higher scoring throw.
Players from competing teams throw head to head. The lower cumulative score total receives a letter. The first team to have HORSE spelled out loses. Ties result in one additional overtime throw. If the score is still tied after overtime, no letters are awarded and the next two throwers step up.
Teams must hit all predetermined numbers on the board three times, putting up one mark each time a number is hit. When a number is hit three times, it is closed out and is available for scoring. Once both teams close out a number, it is dead and does nothing for either team that hits it for the rest of the game.
