Come for the food and drink, stay for the games.

For all of you that enjoy our games this is for you.  Yesterday was the beginning of our Bocce Ball league.  Join the league for discounted drinks and food, and let your competitive side out.

Bocce Ball and Shuffle Board are FREE games here downstairs at Ormsby’s.  After some questions we have decided to share a detailed description of the correct rules for our shuffle board table.  

When someone is waiting for next game play to 11, otherwise a full game to 21 is okay.  Also, keep in mind we recommend fair scoring and sharing the fun.  Keep gaming! 

Common Shuffleboard Game Rules

Have you ever wondered how to play shuffleboard? Here are the most common shuffleboard rules that generally apply to most games. The rules usually require that you alternately take turns sliding, by hand, all 4 of your weights against the ones from your opponent. Try to make it to the highest scoring area on the shuffleboard without falling off the end of the board into the alley. In order to earn points your weights need to be the farthest down the board. Some of the strategy and fun really comes into play when you knock off your opponents’ weights, outdistance them or use your weights to protect your other highest scoring weights.

Usually the most common games are played either to 15 or 21 points. The sections below cover the shuffleboard game rules for the most famous (and fun) shuffleboard games. We hope you find these game rules helpful for enjoyment of your McClure Shuffleboard table.

Shuffleboard Game Rules Scoring:Shuffleboard Game Rules Scoring
EXAMPLE: If a Red Weight is the most distant Weight from the playing end at the completion of a round, Red becomes the winner of the round, and only Red can score. To determine Red’s score, total the value of each Red Weight that lies ahead of the leading Blue Weight. Red Weights which are either blocked or which lie behind the leading Blue Weight are not scored. If there are no Blue Weights remaining on the board, all remaining Red Weights are scored.

Knock Off Shuffleboard Rules:
Knock Off shuffleboard is one of the simplest and most common ways to play the game. However, just because the rules are simple to remember does not mean the game is easy to play. Any game of shuffleboard can be improved with patience and strategy, and this one is no different. Learn more about the Knock Off Game Rules.

Horse Collar Shuffleboard Rules:
Need a high scoring affair? Horse Collar shuffleboard is played one-on-one or with teams, and the winner must score 51 points. With a fun betting element for those who can’t score and huge shots worth 26 points, Horse Collar is a game that everyone will be wanting to play. Learn more about the Horse Collar Game Rules.

Tap & Draw Shuffleboard Rules:
Unlike Knock Off participants, Tap & Draw players who get to shuffle the first puck have the best advantage. Tap & Draw is played and scored similarly to other versions of the game, but there is one major difference. In Tap & Draw, you can attempt to send your own puck farther up the board by tapping it with another one of your pucks. Learn more about the Tap & Draw Game Rules.

Crazy Eight Shuffleboard Rules:
As far as physically throwing the pucks and keeping score, Crazy Eight presents a version of shuffleboard that is pretty similar to many of the classic games people play. However, Crazy Eight is a fun and challenging version of shuffleboard due to the way that points are actually scored. Learn more about the Crazy Eight Game Rules.

Target Shuffleboard Rules:
Just like darts, archery and rifler, this shuffleboard game gives you the chance to aim and shoot at a target. With hopes of scoring one, two, three or four-points, use your skills to shoot for a target and bring home the winning game. Only the winner scores in each round, so choose your play wisely.

More Creature Comforts at Ormsby’s.

The Modern Comfort

Double IPA

Stay tuned for more featured beers as well as some new menu changes we are very excited to unveil.  Here below is a the description of one of the five of our rotating taps here at Ormsby’s.

Modern Comforts is a collaboration with our friends at Modern Times in San Diego. For this massively hopped Double IPA we used Citra and Mosaic hop pellets, CO2 hop extract, and lupulin powder from YCH Hops. Using all three of these hop products, and putting our minds together with our west coast friends, we absolutely saturated the hop flavor and aroma in this beer.

 Modern Comforts pours a pale golden orange color with an off white, pearl foam. Upon pouring, we get citrus zest, blueberry, fresh squeezed orange juice, tropical fruit and some light floral notes. The flavor turns it all up a notch moving into earthy, melon rind, pineapple, and more tropical fruit notes that finish with a medium bitterness. It’s a love letter for the hop head consumer from a couple hop head breweries. 

Cheers & enjoy!
