Table shuffleboard is a classic game that has been enjoyed by families for generations. Its simple yet engaging game play makes it a perfect choice for family gatherings and get-togethers. In this blog post, we will explore why table shuffleboard is such a great family game and why you should consider adding it to your next family game night.

First and foremost, table shuffleboard is a game that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Whether you are a young child or a grandparent, everyone can participate and have fun. This inclusivity is one of the key reasons why table shuffleboard is a popular choice for family game nights. It brings different generations together and provides a platform for bonding and creating lasting memories.

Another reason why table shuffleboard is a great family game is that it promotes friendly competition. While the objective of the game is to slide the pucks down the table and score points, it is not overly competitive or intense. It allows players to engage in a healthy and enjoyable competition, encouraging teamwork and strategic thinking. The game can be played in teams, further fostering collaboration and communication among family members.

Table shuffleboard also offers a unique combination of skill and luck. While players need to develop their technique and accuracy in sliding the pucks, there is always an element of unpredictability due to the smooth surface of the table. This balance between skill and luck adds excitement and keeps the game interesting for players of all levels.

Parents are increasingly concerned with "screen time". Social media and video games isolate today's children and robs them of the benefits of in-person interactions. Table Shuffleboard is the perfect solution to those modern day parenting challenges. Looking for a fun way to spend quality time with your children? Look no further than Table Shuffleboard for the answer. Shuffleboard Tables are available in a wide variety of sizes, meaning that most every home can accommodate a shuffleboard.

In addition to being a fun and engaging game, table shuffleboard also offers numerous health benefits. It promotes hand-eye coordination, balance, and fine motor skills. The physical activity involved in sliding the pucks helps to keep players active and can be a great alternative to sedentary activities. Moreover, the social interaction and communication required during the game contribute to mental stimulation and overall well-being.

In conclusion, table shuffleboard is a fantastic family game that brings people together, promotes friendly competition, and offers a unique blend of skill and luck. Its versatility, health benefits, and inclusivity make it an ideal choice for family game nights. So why not gather your loved ones, set up a shuffleboard table, and enjoy hours of fun and laughter? Give table shuffleboard a try, and you'll see why it has been a beloved game among families for generations.

To play Table Shuffleboard, you need a minimum of two feet at each end of the table. Three to four feet is even better!The long side of your Shuffleboard Table can be placed right against the wall, if necessary. However, we suggest that you position it six inches to a foot away from the wall. You may find that a little extra elbow room makes for more comfortable playing conditions.

Table Shuffleboard is one of the most inclusive, most endearing games on the planet. It can be enjoyed by virtually everyone from toddlers to nonagenarians! It's easy to learn, but impossible to master. It's great for helping children develop hand-eye coordination and, as their skills progress, the unique strategical aspects challenge their critical thinking development. In fact, chess is often referred to as "chess with hand-eye coordination." It is also perhaps the most unisex sport you will ever find! In fact, in high level tournament competition, women and men all play in the same divisions, and women often come out on top!

Shuffleboard Tables are often passed along from generation to generation. Each new generation enjoys making new memories through this unique way to spend quality family time. One of the coolest things about Table Shuffleboard is that there are a handful of different games that can be played on a Shuffleboard Table in addition to the standard game. Games like Horse Collar, Crazy Eights and Shuffleboard Bowling allow groups of any size to all play at the same time, making it the perfect activity when you're entertaining. So whether it's just you and your significant other, or a group of 25 or more, Table Shuffleboard is the perfect way to spend an evening.



What do you sprinkle on a Shuffleboard Table?

Shuffleboard Wax, commonly referred to as Shuffleboard Sand, Shuffleboard Dust, Speed Powder, Powdered Wax, has many names, but only one purpose: to reduce friction and allow the Shuffleboard Weights (pucks) to glide smoothly down the playing surface.

Selecting the right Speed Powder for the length of your Shuffleboard Table is extremely important in maximizing the enjoyment level when you play. Using Shuffleboard Sand that is too fast can make it extremely difficult to keep the pucks on that table. And, if you can't keep the weights on the board, the game isn't much fun.

Fortunately, The Shuffleboard Federation offers 11 different varieties of its tournament quality Shuffleboard Waxes. Please refer to the How To Pick The Right Wax For Your Shuffleboard Table page on our website, and the accompanying Speed Powder Selection Chart. This will help you to pick the best wax for whatever size Shuffleboard Table you have.You'll find that the Ultra Glide T4 and T5 waxes used on Regulation Size 22' Shuffleboard Tables are much different than products that are designed for 9', 12' and 14' Shuffleboard Tables, like Ultra Glide R2 and Ultra Glide T2. Still have questions? Call our sales hotline, 800-380-3033 We're available 24/7/365.

The Shuffleboard Federation are the experts in this area, We actually wrote the rules which govern tournament play. We also wrote the League Rule Book which is widely used to govern league play. However, most casual recreational players do not want or need that level of detail, they are primarily interested in the Basic Rules of Shuffleboard. Those rules cover how points are scored, and how to play shuffleboard with two people or four people. Make it official! Deck out your shuffleboard room with a framed Rules Poster. Supplement the rules/how to play print with framed prints for How To Play Horse Collar and How To Play Crazy Eights.

Playing on aNine Foot Shuffleboard Table can be a lot of fun, but it's important to use shuffleboard weights (pucks) that were designed for a table of that length. Otherwise, it can be hard to keep the pucks on the table, and that's not fun! Fortunately, The Shuffleboard Federation offers the Pro Series line of table shuffleboard weights (pucks), which are available in five different speeds. For 9' Shuffleboards, we recommend MA10 as the best option. They also work well on 12' Shuffleboard Tables.

Playing on a Twelve Foot Shuffleboard Table can be a lot of fun, but it's important to use shuffleboard weights (pucks) that were designed for a table of that length. Otherwise, it can be hard to keep the pucks on the table, and that's not fun! Most pucks are made for 22' Shuffleboard Tables, and are too fast for shorter boards. Fortunately, The Shuffleboard Federation offers the Pro Series line of table shuffleboard weights (pucks), which are available in five different speeds. For 12' Shuffleboards, we recommend MA10 or M12 as the best option. They also work well on 14' Shuffleboard Tables.

14 foot shuffleboards are one of the most popular sizes, especially for residential use. You can maximize your scoring and enjoyment level by selecting the right pucks (weights) for your Fourteen Foot Shuffleboard Table. Using the wrong speed of pucks, or speed powder, can make the game frustrating. Most pucks are made for 22' Shuffleboard Tables, and are too fast for shorter boards. Fortunately, The Shuffleboard Federation offers the Pro Series line of table shuffleboard weights (pucks), which are available in five different speeds. For 14' Shuffleboards, we recommend MA10 or M12 as the best option. The M12 speed also works well on 16' Shuffleboard Tables.

Super Slick® Silicone Spray for Shuffleboard Tables delivers long lasting, consistent speed longer than any product of it's kind. By helping to keep the speed powder in place, it greatly reduces "plowing", which is commonly referred to as "tracking". Regular use of Super Slick Silicone Spray will also protect the finish of your shuffleboard and, when properly used, helps to prevent scratching of the playfield and the bottom of your Shuffleboard Weights (pucks). For best results, use Super Slick® at least once a week and our 1•2•3 Shuffleboard Cleaner™ and 1•2•3 Shuffleboard Polish/Wax™ once a month to maximize the performance of your Shuffleboard Table Speed Powder.

There are three components to a Shuffleboard Table. They include the playfield (playing surface), the cradle (the part that the playfield sits in) and the legs. Playfields come standard as a single piece, though some manufacturers, like ChampionVentureHudson, and Heirloom offer a two-piece option. Cradles for 9' Shuffleboards are always one piece. Cradles for 12' and 14' tables come in either one piece or two, depending on the model.Cradles for 16'18'20' and 22' Shuffleboard Tables always come in two sections.

Shuffleboard Tables will have either one or two foul lines, depending on the length of the table. Shuffleboards that are 9 feet, 12 feet, or 14 feet long will have a single foul line in the middle of the playing surface. Weights (pucks) must be completely past the foul line or they are considered to be a "dead weight", and must be removed from the table.

Shuffleboard Tables that are 16 feet, 18 feet, 20 feet and 22 feet (regulation size), have two foul lines. They are located 6 feet from each end of the playing surface. Players must shoot their weights/pucks past the foul line closest to them in order for the weight to be legal. Any weights that are between the foul line closest to the shooter, and the "deuce line" are considered to be in the one point zone.

The "short foul line" rule is one of the most misunderstood Shuffleboard Rules in the game. Casual recreational players often get this rule wrong, and wonder why the rule exists. Quite simply, the short foul line has major strategical implications. It is often used to protect a lead, or to block the opponent's favorite lagging lane.

If space is tight, then a shuffleboard can be placed right against a wall. However, if you have room to position your table six inches to eight inches away from the wall, the extra elbow room makes for a more comfortable playing experience.

Table Shuffleboard has been around for centuries. The first visual reference to the game occurs in a painting called  The Pall Mall Court, which was painted in 1677 by Adriean van Ostade. It is hundred of years older than than shuffleboard on the ground, which is called deck shuffleboard

Table shuffleboard is played on a long wooden table, and involves players using their hands to slide their weights (pucks) down the table,trying to get as close to the end of the playing surface as possible. Games usually are played to 15 or 21 points, with 15 being the more popular of the two formats.Shuffleboard Tables come in a wide variety of sizes, between 9 ft and 22ft

In deck shuffleboard, players use long sticks, known as "cues" to push the shuffleboard discs down a long court, which is typically configured on a concrete surface.One very big difference between the two games is that the one thing you do not want to do in deck shuffleboard is get as close to the end of the court as possible, as the end zone is worth -10 points!

In singles play, both players stand at one end of the Shuffleboard Table and alternate shots until all eight weights have been delivered. Both players then walk to the other end of the board, tally and register the score, and resume play from the end at which they are now standing. Only the color which is closest to the end of the board scores. All weights of that color which are deeper than any/all the weights of the opposite color are worth 1,2,3, or 4 points. The person that scores must shoot first in the next frame. If neither team scores, the team which had the hammer must shoot first.

When playing Table Shuffleboard with four people, which is referred to as Doubles, one player from each team is at each end of the board. Players alternate shots until all eight weights have been delivered. After a frame has been completed, the players at the opposite end tally and register the score, after which play resumes from that end. Only the color which is closest to the end of the board scores. All weights of that color which are deeper than any/all the weights of the opposite color are worth 1,2,3, or 4 points. The person that scores must shoot first in the next frame. If neither team scores, the team which had the hammer must shoot first.

Only the color which is closest to the end of the board scores. All weights of that color which are deeper than any/all the weights of the opposite color are worth 1,2,3, or 4 points.

Each end of the playing surface has two lines. The "3" line, which is six inches from the end, and the "2" line which is twelve inches from the end. There are also two foul lines which are six feet from each end.

A weight which is past the foul line closest to the shooter, but not past the "2" line counts as one point.

A weight which is completely past the "2" line, but not past the "3" line counts as two points.

A weight which is completely past the "3" line but not extending over the end of the playing field counts as three points.

A weight which hanging over the end of the board (commonly referred to as a "hanger" counts as four points.

To determine if a weight is completely past a line, stand at the end of the table and look down over the top of the weight. If any part of the weight is touching the line, it counts as the smaller number, if it is completely past the line it counts as the higher number.

The team that scores must shoot first in the next frame. If neither team scores, the team which had the hammer must shoot first.

Back in the day, singles was usually played to 15 points, while doubles (partners) games were played to 21. In recent years, it has become common the see doubles also played to 15 points. This speeds up play and allows more games to be played.

Shuffleboard Tables all have individual characteristics, due to the fact that the wood playing surfaces expand and contract, based on changes in humidity. This results in curves in the table. Learning those curves is an important aspect of playing well and dominating your opponent. Also, most shuffleboards are slightly faster from one end to the other. Generally speaking, it is easier to have you weights (pucks) stop in the deepest scoring zones when shooting on the slower end.Developing an arsenal of different releases, like Jersey shots, cross board shots, rail shots, free hand, span and finger shots, allow you to hit and stick more weights, thus helping you to control the game.

Pro Series Weights, which are much more consistent than any other brand, come in five different speeds.

When playing Table Shuffleboard, eight weights, also referred to as pucks, are used. Each team/player has four weights/pucks. The standard colors are red and blue, though many other colors are available.

No, the first person to score 15 points, or 21 points, depending on what you are playing to wins the game.

Unlike some other sports, you do not have to win by 2 points. The first player or team to reach the designated score, 15 or 21 points, wins the game.

Our Shuffleboards range in size between 7 feet long and 22 feet long. A standard, regulation size Shuffleboard tables is 22 feet. Most people buy the longest table that they can comfortable fit into their space. We recommend at least two feet at each end of the table. So, for example, in a space that is 18' long, a 14' Shuffleboard Table is the longest table that would fit.

All of our shuffleboards feature genuine Canadian Maple playing surfaces. More than a century of manufacturing has proven that Maple is the best, most stable wood species for a shuffleboard. Lower quality tables use birch, poplar and other less expensive woods, which are more susceptible to warping.

They have many years and sometimes decades of experience in setting up shuffleboards and have set up hundreds of tables.

Setting up a shuffleboard table is not complicated. All of the individual components are pre-assembled. The only assembly involved is attaching the legs to the cradle. This is just a matter of putting the legs into the designated location, putting the bolts through the pre-drilled holes and tightening the nuts. The playfield (the board itself) is heavy (up to 420 lbs on a 22' model) and will generally require 3 to 6 people to help lift it and set it in place. The other parts of the table, namely the cradle and the legs, can be easily managed by 2 people.

No. Common tools like a 1/2" or 9/16" wrench, a screwdriver, and a 2' and/or longer level are usually all you will need.

Once the legs have been attached to the cradle, it is ready for leveling. The next step would be to start at either end of the table and place the level on top of the cradle directly over the legs. Continue by turning one of the threaded "feet" on each leg until the cradle is level in that spot and then move to the area over the next leg. There are either two, three or five legs, depending on the brand and length of the table. Continue in this fashion until you have worked your way to the other end of the table. In a similar fashion you would then check the end to end (lengthwise) level. Because of the size of a shuffleboard table, it will take from a few days to a week to completely settle in, depending on the type of flooring. This means that you may need to do a little fine tuning after the board has settled, even if you have someone else install your shuffleboard.

Climatic Adjusters are used to keep the playfield true. Because the playfield of a shuffleboard table is wood, it will behave like any other piece of wood and will swell a little in more humid weather and contract slightly in drier conditions. This can affect the trueness of the playfield. The "climatic" adjusters will compensate for those natural occurrences. For most people, a shuffleboard table is a major investment. Before you buy a shuffleboard table, it makes good sense to make sure the company you buy it from can tell you, based on where you live, how your climate will affect your table and how and when to use the climatic adjusters. Improper use of the climatic adjusters could cause a table to crack, so check the knowledge, experience and qualifications of the people you are dealing with before you buy.
