Game of the Month “Contact”

Contact

Contact is one of the few games in which you will not need different colored balls to identify each player’s/team’s score. The game of Contact not only challenges your  accuracy but your math skills as well. Like most Brick&Putt games, 12 balls are utilized and  players/teams alternate putts until all 12 balls are putted.  The object is to be the first  player/team to reach 100 points or higher after a round is complete.

So how do you score?  The only way to score points is by making contact with any ball lying on top of the course between the minimum distance line and the back end. Once a player/team does make contact, that player/team immediately receives all the points on the course. This can add up quickly.

The complete rules are illustrated in Brick&Putt Volume 2

Game of the Month

CALL YOUR SCORE

A game that seems to be played on a regular basis, both in tournaments and at home is  “Call your Score”. This game is interesting because each player/team must call out the total score they expect to obtain after all balls are putted without going over. The player/team that comes closer to their called score wins.

In this game it is important to win the lag. This gives you the option of  putting first or last, and calling your score first or last. In most games its better to go last. This gives you a chance to  disrupt the opposing player’s/team’s score by knocking their ball into a different point zone, or off the course.

Hint: One mistake new players/teams seem to make is that they tend to call too high of  a score. For instance, lets say you called 30 points and I called 18. Now you have 6 balls to try and get close to 30 points. But, since we alternate putts I will do my best to block the holes while trying to get close to my called score of  18. There is less room for error when a high score is called.  However, if you are a skilled putter, the higher score will ensure the win.

You can find the complete rules to “Call your Score”  below.

Choosing the games to play…

Your BrickandPutt course just arrived in the mail,  you set it up in the family room, you take out all the balls, you download both Rulebooks, which game do you play? It could be a bit overwhelming with so many options.

Always start with the game of BrickandPutt. This is the first game illustrated in volume 1. Once you understand that game, all other games will be easy to pick up, as the majority of the games are based on that game’s format. Fore instance, most of the games use 12 balls, with players alternating putts, leaving all balls on the course before scores are tallied.

The top games that me and my friends usually play are… Moneyball, Defender, Zerow, Call Your Score, Contact, Lyres Brick, Subtractor, Two Ball, and Touch.  I could keep going, but will stop there.

Hope you enjoy playing, and Accept the Challenge!

Favorite Place to Play

If you live or visit Santa Rosa, situated in the heart of Sonoma County, you will find an awesome Brew Pub with a BrickandPutt course. The SweetSpot Pub and Grill is located on 619 Fourth Street in Santa Rosa, CA. The place features Lagunits Beer, and the menu has a Belizean influence, with beer battered fish and chips and fish tacos. You can always catch a game as they have multiple flat screens scattered around the bar. You will not be bored as the place has both a BrickandPutt course and a shuffleboard table.  So, if you up for a new style of competition, come to the sweetspot and enjoy. You can even email Russell for a introduction of the games.
