Game for 12 and Under

"We had the Rollors game out of the box and set up within five minutes, and proceeded from a simple game to a full-on tournament! All the members of our family had a great time. What a fun, portable game for all ages! (I should note that my 7-year-old is the current Rollors champion, but we're planning a rematch)." Mari Farthing Editor of MetroFamily Magazine


Set-Up
Position the red and blue goals approximately 15-20 feet apart on level ground.

Play
Each player uses one color set of rollers in the first round of play, blue goes first. Standing behind the red goal the blue player rolls one rollor at a time to the other goal. The rollor should be rolled on the edge, with a wind-up and release as in bowling. The rollor must touch the ground with in 4 feet of the release. Once the blue player has played the red player takes a turn.

Safety Notes: 
Throwing the rollor is NOT allowed. 

Scoring
Only one player scores each round and that is the player with the rollor that is closest to the goal. The measuring cord should assist in determining which player is closest. In the case of a tie neither player scores. All rollers of the closest scoring color to the goal receive points. 

In order to score, a rollor must fall entirely within a 5 foot radius of the center of the goal. A measuring cord is provided to measure this requirement. Points are given as follows:

  1. Rollors that land on their side - score a point value equal to the number that is showing.
  2. Rollers that stop on the edge - score a point value equal to the sum of both sides.
  3. Rollers that come to rest against the goal - score a point value of double the number showing.

Play continues with rounds that are started by the last color that has scored, rolling back and forth between goals. To win, a player must achieve a total of 21 points or more, and must have two more points than the opponent.
