  • One foot must remain behind the foul line.
  • The first player pitches both of their washers followed by the opposing player pitching both of their washers.
  • Scoring Cancellation Rules:  If a player lands a washer in the same position as their opponents, those points will be cancelled out.  For example:  If a player has a washer in the cup and one in the box with his opponent putting a washer in the cup and one in the box, neither player will score a point.  If a player has one washer in the cup and the opponent has two in the box the player in the cup scores five points and the opponent scores none.  The cup washer scores over the box washer.
