    'Ring toss' and card games

    by Bwana_Brown Updated Jun 26, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another game that was quite entertaining and less dangerous than 'beer-darts' was 'ring tossing'. This involved two heavy carpeted boards, each with three holes into which two teams of two members would throw heavy metal discs so they would slide into one of the three holes. The throwing alternated from one end to the other (with one member of each team at each end) with each opposing team member throwing three discs. Points of 1, 3 or 5 were won by sliding a disc into the closest, middle or furthest hole. However, if a disc from the opposing team member then slid into one of the holes already occupied, the points for that hole were cancelled. The first team to get exactly 21 won the game.

    Once the sun went down, card games were the competition of choice with games varying from Cribbage, to Hearts to Poker while the odd drink or two flowed.

    Beer-darts

    by Bwana_Brown Updated Jun 18, 2008

    'Beer-darts' is a sport I had not heard of until going on this trip. Members of previous expeditions soon introduced it to me and (although I only tried it twice) it turned out to be an enjoyable way to pass part of the evening hours after all the fishing had been completed for the day.

    Teams comprising any number of members (usually two, three or four) were selected and would sit in rows a few feet apart facing each other. Each team would have a can of beer (or maybe two stacked cans when the game really got going) sitting on the ground in front of them. The teams would each then alternately throw one dart at the opposing team's can and, if they succeeded in puncturing it, one member of that team would have to immediately guzzle it down. The next time a hit was made, the next member of the team would take his turn downing the beverage. It turned into quite a laugh as the bravado of each team rose through the course of the game. The game was over when a member of either team tossed in the towel and said enough was enough.

    Equipment: Several full beer cans and two darts
