Polish Horseshoes


Players needed: Four

Space required: Generous

Necessary supplies: One flying disc or “Frisbee,” two stakes with a flat enough top to accommodate an empty bottle, and two empty bottles

A.K.A. Spanish Horseshoes, French Darts

What it’s all about: Players take turns tossing a flying disc at their opponent’s bottle, which sits atop the opposite stake. The stakes are placed 20, 30 or 40 feet apart, depending on space and skill level. Upping the ante, players must only have one hand available for throwing and catching, so an object must be held in each player’s opposite had at all times.
