Pic of a board and the quoits.

you stand 8 feet away and throw the quoits. 5 points for getting it on the peg, 2 for the center circle, 1 for the outside circle

WIki

Exclusively a pub game, this variant is predominantly played in mid and south Wales, and in England, along its border with Wales.
Matches are played by 2 teams (usually the host pub verses another pub) and typically consist of 4 games of singles, followed by 3 games of doubles. Players take it in turns to pitch 4 rubber rings across a distance of around 8.5 feet onto a raised Quoits board. The board consists of a central 'pin' or 'spike' and 2 recessed sections; an inner circular section called the 'dish' and a circular outer section.
5 points are awarded for a quoit landing cleanly over the pin, 2 points for a quoit landing cleanly in the dish, and one point for a quoit landing cleanly on the outer circular section of the board. The scoreboard consists of numbers running from 1 to 10, 11 or 12, and the object of the game is separately score each of these numbers using 4 or less quoits - the first side to achieve this being the winner.

Its good fun mate, much harder than it seems. Even harder as I play against Welsh and English international players :mad: (yeah they have International games haha, last match England beat Wales easily, the only Welsh player to win his game was the landlord of my local!)

If you see a table in a pub, give it a go, Quoits players seem to always like helping younger ones as the game would die out if people stop playing
