I was introduced to the game of washers last year. Since then, I have found out that there are several variations to this simple game. The version I played had three holes varying in size. Each hole was assigned a different point value based on difficulty. The smaller the hole, the more points it’s worth.
It’s one of those games that doesn’t require tons of skill to play, but has potential to require lots of skill to master. We played for a couple hours and it provided plenty of fun and funny moments. It’s comparable to horseshoes. I found a site that shows you how to build a board of your own. It can be pretty inexpensive to build and some of the other designs make it really compact.
Anyone ever played before? What’s your favorite configuration? Do you add any rules to make it more difficult, or easier for younger kids?
