Object: The object of Odd or Even is to reach the target score first and posses the highest amount of points.
Competition: Odd or Even 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 alternates putts until all twelve balls are putted, thus completing a round.
To Begin Play: Before the game begins, both order of play and the target score must be established. One player/team chooses the target score and the other player/team chooses the order of play. Depending on what was chosen, the target score is either the odd or even total of each player’s/team’s score at the end of each round, (IE., If odd is chosen, each player/team must obtain an odd score at the end of that round in order to qualify for points.) Once the target score has been established the second player/team in line has the option of putting first or last. After a round is completed, the rolls are switched. The player/team who putted first must putt second. The opposing player/team chooses the target score.
Scoring: Scores are tallied after a round is complete. To win a round, a player/team must score the most points while obtaining the target score. The winner of each round receives 1 point. In the case of a tie, no points are awarded. The first player/ team to obtain 3 points is the winner.
Penalties: On the last putt, each player/team must putt at least halfway over the minimum distance line in order to qualify for the round.
