  1. Rule #1: Each Player Gets 12 Discs
    1. Each player gets one color
    2. When 4 players are present, each player gets 6 discs and can be on teams
  2. Rule #2: Once Seated Players Cannot Move Their Chair
    1. Also must remain seated at all times when flicking and shooting
    2. A player’s hands and fingers must be off the board unless it is their turn
  3. Rule #3: Players Must Shoot Within a Disc on the Shooting Line
    1. Once all players take their turns, the round is complete
    2. The order of each player goes clockwise
  4. Rule #4: Discs In the Center are 20 Points, Discs Around the Center are 15 Points, Discs in the Middle Circle are 10 Points, Discs in the Outer Circle are 5 Points
    1. Once a round is complete, the totals are added up, then the winner gets the difference in points in that round. 
    2. Example: Blue team has 45 points and red team has 30 points. Blue team wins 15 points for that round
  5. Rule #5: First Player or team to 100 Points Wins
    1. If 100 points is not reached within a round, the next round starts with the person to the left of the previous winner
    2. In the event of a tie, the remaining players go for one more round
  6. Rule #6: When Shooting, Each Player Must Hit Another Player’s Disc 
    1. If a player flicks and hits no one’s disc, that disc is removed from the board
    2. If a player flicks while no one else’s discs are present on the board, they must get it within the 15 point zone, otherwise their disc is removed
