You may have seen variations of this game played at beaches and parks but these are the definitive rules of “Beersbee” brought to you by the good people at Flylow Gear. Looks like a fantastic way to spend a sunny afternoon by the stable in SquawValley. Here are the official rules if you are interested in playing:
Scoring/Offense: The throwing team must throw the frisbee from behind the pole. The goal is to knock the can off the opponent’s pole with the frisbee. You can score points in a few ways:
-If your opponent drops the frisbee, you score 1 point
-If you knock the can off the pole and it hits the ground, you score 1 point
-If you hit the can directly, you score 1 point
The most you can score in one turn is 3 points. The first team to reach the predetermined total, usually 11 or 21, wins.
Defense: The receiving team must catch the throwing team’s frisbee every time it is thrown. If the frisbee hits the ground, the throwing team earns a point. You are not allowed to catch the frisbee until it crosses the pole, so it is best to stand a step or two behind your pole. If the frisbee is touched before it crosses the pole, it is an automatic 3 points for the throwing team.
However, only catchable frisbees result in penalty points. What is considered catchable must be determined beforehand, but generally throws below the knee and throws out of reach without jumping are considered not catchable.
p.s. these official rules are the same as Polish Horseshoes. Again, variations of the game have existed for sometime but we do appreciate the ski slant the dudes at Flylow put on it. Who doesn’t have a frisbee and a couple ski poles laying around? Get out there and have some fun.
