Does the game in this sport start with a score of 501, and progress downward as one scores the points, or double points? And is there a "bullseye" option in scoring?

Is the scoring based on measurements of time?

No.

(I'm not an expert at this activity, there may well be variations I don't know about)

In this sport is a lower score better than a higher score?

No

unless there's a perverse scoring system I don't kow about.

That would be Darts, which it's not.

But if it were, I'd have awarded the win to you so you'd have been hosting next.
SO be careful!!:eek:

Darts was excluded: it has a still target.

Does a player throw the item?

But see https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=18580146 I thought a hand might qualify as the propelling instrument.

Does the item bounce?

Is this item used in a sport such as track, highland games, lumberjack competition, etc.

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

You said earlier that it could be played by two players. Can it normally be played by more.
