The game consists in reaching the highest number of points overthrowing the pins or staying inside one of the two concentric circles (the lowest with 40 centimeters in diameter and the largest with 1.30 centimeters), where the pins are placed, at the ends of the track.


Each pin knocked down is worth 10 points. If the player achieves to put the mesh in the smallest circle, 20 points are scored and, in the larger circle, 10 points, regardless of overthrowing the pin or not. The sum of the points determines the winner.
