Object: The object of Brixx is to be the first player/team to reach 25 points or higher.
Competition: Brixx can be played one-on-one or with teams.
Format: A total of twelve balls are used for each round and must be evenly divided among all players/teams. Each player/team must alternate putts, utilizing all twelve balls to complete a round.
To Begin Play: After the order of play is determined, two penalty balls are placed on the mat at the beginning of each round by the first putter. The balls are placed on the two markers in front of the 1-point area. Penalty balls should be easy to identify(i.e., penalty balls should be of different color than the team balls. These balls are to be avoided unless a player can knock one into any hole. If a penalty ball is knocked into a hole,the player/team who knocked it in will immediately receive twice the worth of the hole.
Scoring: Scores are tallied after a round is complete.
Penalties: While playing Brixx, it is possible to get negative points. There are three ways a player can be penalized:
- By knocking a penalty ball off the course by a putted ball When a player knocks a penalty ball off the course, that player must immediately subtract 10 points from his/her score.
- By knocking a penalty ball into either the 1- or 3-point region If a player knocks a penalty ball forward into either the 1- or 3-point region, that player must immediately subtract the amount of the region from his/her score.
- By not successfully making a putt past the minimum distance line. If a player does not successfully putt past the minimum distance line, he/she must immediately subtract 1 point from his/her score. Not a penalty: If a penalty ball is already lying in the 1- or 3-point region, and a player makes contact with that ball but does not move it forward into the next scoring region or off the course, it is not considered a penalty. If a penalty ball moves backward into a lower scoring region, it is not a penalty
