This is the basic rules, other games that are playablewith the BrassRing are listed in the package.
Players first establish a throw line. One player then tosses the ring out beyond the throw line, called the Setter,because that player sets the throwing distance. Like pitching pennies, the line cannot be crossed when each player tosses the penny. The object of the game is to put a penny inside the Brass Ring. Each time a penny is put inside the Brass Ring, the player, called the Ringer, collects all the pennies that missed up to that point. The Ringer will then take the Brass Ring and toss it out to set it up for the next round, andnow becomes the Setter.
The player who throws the Brass Ring, the Setter, will be the last thrower in the round. This is to ensure that the Setter doesn't make this too easy to win. Then each player in turn tries to put the penny into the Brass Ring. If after multiple rounds, no one has put a penny in the Brass Ring, they can collect the pennies that were thrown, and begin again.
After each win by a player, The Ringer, will collect the Brass Ring and throw it to a new spot. This is the only time the throw line can be changed. Play continues until all the pennies are won by one player or time runs out and the player with the most wins.
Of course the game can be played with marbles, jacks, small balls, checkers or any denomination of coin (smaller than a quarter). Jacks make an interesting twist to the game, they don't roll or bounce in a specific way.
The game can be played inside or outside. Inside the game is very challenging with marbles, if not impossible, when the floor is smooth. Carpet, wood floors, tile, sand, dirt and grass make the game different in the skills needed and employed. Sand makes a great game area as the tossed items don't bounce much.
Any ideas on the game can be sent to us to incorporate into the game system. Have fun and enjoy.
