About the Game / How to Play
"Everyone and their brother has a game of bags (or “cornhole”) and they probably have bocce, jarts, washers, croquet or horseshoes lying around too. But those games are old, tired and everyone has them. Rollors is new, different and isn’t solely based on skill." Kim Vandenbroucke

Who Can Play?
Rollors is designed for players of all ages to enjoy! This is a great game for families, students, tailgaters, and more.
Each player or team of 2-3 players uses one color set of rollors in the first round of play with blue going first. Standing behind the red goal, the blue player/team rolls one rollor at a time to their blue goal. The rollor should be rolled on the edge, with a wind-up and release as in bowling. The rollor must touch the ground within 4 feet of the release. Once the blue player/team has played, the red player/team takes a turn.
Throwing the rollor is NOT allowed. Do not use on concrete, wood, or other hard surfaces.
Only one player/team scores each round and that is the player/team with the rollor that is closest to their goal. The measuring cord should assist in determining which player is closest. In the case of a tie, neither player/team scores. All rollors 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.
For example, if you had two blue rollors within the radius of the measuring cord but closer than the red rollors then you would get the points on both blue rollors. If you were to get all 3 blue rollors before the red than all 3 would count. Only one color can score per round. another way to play is you add up all the points of all disks that are within the radius of the measuring cord.
Points are given as follows:
- Rollors that land on their side - score a point value equal to the number that is showing.
- Rollors that stop on the edge - score a point value equal to the sum of both sides.
- Rollors 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.
