Run for the Roses - HOOKS! Game Mode

It's that time of the year – It’s Derby Time!

Whether you will be on the infield at Churchill Downs or kicked back on the couch at home, we have the games to truly make this “the most exciting two minutes in sports!”

So, grab your mint juleps and get ready to play the ponies!

 

WHAT YOU NEED:

HOOKS! Ring Toss Game and Shot Ladder Bundle - Burn
and/or
HOOKS! Ring Toss Game and Shot Ladder Bundle - Natural

  

HOW TO PLAY:  

  • Line up your horses, I mean HOOKS! sets, and place the shot cup on the Shot Ladder end closest to the jockeys/players. 
  • On countdown, each jockey swings the ring until it lands on the hook. When you land the hook, move the shot cup one space away from you.
  • First jockey to move their shot cup off the Shot Ladder (aka lands 5 hooks) wins the race! 

 

VARIATIONS:

Teams: Each time you land the hook, move the shot cup one space forward. Now get out of the way for your teammate to throw! Continue to alternate throws on your team until you win.

Advanced Jockeys: Add a level of difficulty by having to go up and back down the Shot Ladder (aka land 9 hooks).

 

BONUS GAME: Giddy Up! Card Game 

WHAT YOU NEED:

Mini Playing Cards

 

HOW TO PLAY:  

  • Pull out the four horses (Aces) and line them up in a starting position 
  • Pull out two cards of each suit, and turn them face down running down the side of the Aces as posts
  • Now off to the races!  With the shuffled deck, start flipping one card at a time.  Each time a card is flipped, move the matching suit of the Ace around the track (down the line of face down cards)
  • There is a catch:  When all Aces pass a post, the face down card is flipped over and the matching suit of the Ace gets moved back one space
  • First Ace/Horse to get past all 8 posts and across the finish line, wins!
