Shuffleboard has landed!

The latest addition to the games mezzanine has landed, and we’re super-excited for you to try it out!

From this weekend onward, visitors to the taproom in Saltaire will be able to enjoy our brand new American-style shuffleboard table, alongside old-favourites foosball and ping pong.

WHAT IS SHUFFLEBOARD?

“Table shuffleboard is a game in which teams push metal-and-plastic weighted pucks (also called weights or quoits)  down a long and smooth wooden table into a scoring area at the opposite end of the table. 

The objective of the game is to slide, by hand, all four pucks so that they reach the highest scoring area without falling off the end of the board into the alley. 

A team’s puck(s) must be farther down the board than their opponent’s puck(s), in order to be in scoring position.

This may be achieved either by knocking off the opponent’s puck(s), or by outdistancing them.”

SALT HOUSE RULES

  • 2 TEAMS, 1-4 PLAYERS PER TEAM
  • BOTH TEAMS SHOOT, ALTERNATELY, TOWARDS THE SAME END
  • THE TEAM WITH THEIR PUCK FURTHEST TOWARDS THE FAR END TAKES THE POINTS
