You typically play this game to 51 points, and there is a betting mechanic that can make a big shot worth 26 points: the true definition of it is anyone’s game.
The object like most shuffleboard games is to get the most points. Before a player can score, they need at least 1 puck in the 3-point section. Then, every puck that goes past the foul line is counted when scoring in Horse Collar. Pucks that are beyond your opponent's farthest weight count towards your score. Any weight between the foul line and the 2-point line scores 1 point. A weight that is across the 2 or 3 line counts for the number of points designated. Weights must be completely over the line to count as the higher value. Weights that are hanging over the end of the board are called ‘hangers’ and worth 4 points. Pucks that are in the corners of the board are awarded 26 points.
