There are many legends on Bodmin Moor that tell tales of giants especially around the Hurlers Stone Circles and Cheesewring near Minions. I found it quite amazing that this huge stone monument has been standing here for over 5,000 years and it’s still upright in its current shape. When it’s being played by children or teenagers, rope or rubber are often preferred, but adults may find using metal rings better. The material of the rings will have a big impact on your throw so think carefully before choosing a set. Quoits Rules and Gameplay The Aim of The Game

According to an ancient legend, some giants hurled these stones together in a game of Quoits. This ancient game requires you to throw rings over a spike! A classic traditional game for indoors and outdoors alike. Great for all ages, requires skill and accuracy, where everyone can compete on equal terms. Two slate boards 24 by 24 by 1 inch are used with a hole in the centre of each, into which is placed a hub (centrally placed pin). Grooved circles are visible bullseye fashion around each hub and underneath a 2 x 4 inch piece of wood is attached so that the boards sit at an angle. The boards are placed at ground level at a distance of 18 feet (6 yards) from hub to hub. Four hard rubber quoits are thrown. The Long Game or The Old Game can still be found in Wales and Scotland. It seems to be most venerable of the Quoits games and the heaviness of the quoits, sheer distance and difficulty in seeing the pin make it both challenging to play and dramatic to watch. The Welsh version is given here. The Scottish game used to played at a range of 21 yards but these days is identical to the Welsh version bar a few minor differences - for instance the Welsh measure the distance to a quoit from the centre of the pin whereas the Scottish measure from the edge of the pinDogs at Trethevy Quoit– dogs are permitted here all year but keep them on a lead as sheep graze in the field

There are others that say this was a temple for worship and wasn’t associated with the dead at all. The quoits are normally made of steel and should be no bigger than 8.63 inches and with a hole no less than 3.4" with no limit on the height or weight. A typical quoit will be 7 - 8" in diameter, have a hole diameter of 4.5 inches and weigh anything between 6 and 11 pounds.

Single Stake Quoits

Our Giant Quoits is for hire all year round, so why don’t you ring one of our sales team today to hire our Giant Quoits. To assist the players, two helpers can be allocated to them. Firstly a "cleaner" can be tasked with cleaning the clay from quoits after each end. Cleaners are rarely employed these days - players tend to clean their own quoits. More vitally, each player has a helper called a "lighter". The lighter places a small piece of white paper within the bed before each throw for the player to aim at. Often this is on the pin itself, it being almost invisible in the clay at 18 yards but sometimes, the lighter will place the paper elsewhere within the bed according to the tactics of the throw. For instance, sometimes the objective might be to flip an opponent's quoit out of play. The lighter also provides the player with measurements, a description of the current state of play and tactical advice. So, Trethevy Quoit is an amazing monument to see but you’ll only need a very short time here and then you’ll be itching to see something else!

While the Long game is played in Wales and Scotland, the most popular Quoits game in England is a quite different prospect. Not only is the pitch significantly shorter and the quoits smaller and lighter but the difference in scoring results in a more tactical game. In some variations of Quoits the player who gets nearest to the spike will score a point. So, it isn’t just a matter of hitting the spike to score. Generally, the game is round-based with each player throwing one ring per round.

Supersized and stylish due to its polished pine base and rope hoops made from natural fibres. Whatever your throwing technique, points are scored by landing the hoops over the pegs and, as each peg is worth a different amount, it’s important to get your aim right. If there are no ringers, 2 points are scored if a player threw the nearest two quoits, otherwise 1 point is scored for the nearest quoit. Can you fly a drone at Trethevy Quoit? –is strictly not permitted unless you have permission from English Heritage The magazine listed rules for pubQuoits, advertisements for fairgrounds around this time also listed Quoits alongside other games like ten-pin bowling. But it is believed that Quoits is actually much older than the 19th century. Generally, each player is given 3 rings and will only score a point if they hit the spike. Some modern boards like we mentioned earlier have specific scores already written on them.

Otherwise, the player with the top ringer scores 3 points. If no other ringers were scored and the same player also has the nearest quoit, an extra 1 point is scored.

This temple has also been called King Arthur’s Quoit and has been connected with the Arthurian tales too. In many games, players will simply have to hit near to the spike to score, so actually aiming for a lower score rather than risking overshooting could certainly be a viable option. This will help you get through the first few rounds before aiming for more precise, difficult shots.This tale tells of a gentle giant who lived in Cornwall, the land of giants, and a place where they were thought responsible for many of the natural landscape features. The story appears in Traditional and Hearthside Stories of West Cornwall by W. Botrell 1870. In a two player game, players "walk" from board to board at each turn. In a four player game there are two to a team and a pair of opponents stay at one board for the entire game. To avoid injury, players and spectators should stand well clear of the slate bed being targeted. A toss of a coin decides who begins. Players alternate - one throws one quoit and then the other player throws. 21 points wins the games.
