I had a chance to watch a Quoits match while visiting the Red Lion Pub in Newbrough. Quoits is a game similar to Horseshoes. Rather than a bed of sand , the target pin for Quoits is wet clay. This means that when the metal rings hit they often sink into the clay.

The Quoit that is thrown closest to the pin earns a point. If the two closest Quoits were thrown by the same that player gets two points. A player gets two points for a quoit that lands over the pin. If an opponent throws a Quoit on top of ringer, only only the top quoit scores.

Here is example of the type of Quoits being thrown at this match.

  1. This reminds me of playing horseshoes at a winery in the Virginia mountains–but they aren’t holding drinks in their hand!?! I don’t understand.
