Basic Rules of Shuffleboard

The object of a shuffleboard game is to propel discs by means of the cue onto a scoring diagram on the opposite end of the court. When propelling the discs, players may score; prevent their opponent from scoring, or both. A play is commenced by propelling the yellow (or red) disc using a cue. Yellow and red discs are alternately shot, then black until all discs are shot. Each game may be played to 50, 75 or 100 points. Winners on match plays will be decided on who wins 2 out of 3 games. Penalty points are given whenever: a disc touches front or back line; disc touches side or middle lines; players leaving court without permission; players shooting before opponent’s disc come to rest; or when players touch live discs at any time.
