Washer pitching Information

Washer pitching is a physical game of skill similar to horseshoes and is most popular in North America. The game is variously referred to as washers, washer pitching, washer toss, "Texas Horseshoes" or washoos .

The object of the game is to earn points by tossing metal washers, usually around two inches in diameter, toward a hole in a board or box. Washer boxes vary in size and shape, but a standard for one-hole washers is 16 X 16 X 5½ inches, with a cylindrically-shaped cup located in its upper surface. Boxes are placed approximately 20 feet away from each other, a distance often determined by a string attached to the front of each box.

The throwing player stands next to or behind one box and tosses washers toward the other, normally underhand. Scoring is similar to horseshoes in that the second team to throw can wash-out/rebut any points that the first team may have scored, then add to their total. Three points are awarded to a non-rebutted ringer . One point is awarded to each non-rebutted washer inside the box. Games are normally played to 21 points.
