The Third Annual World Quoits Championship will be held tomorrow in Amityville, PA. This ancient game, related to the discus, involves pitching rings at a peg in the ground. Once widely played in the UK and US, the game of quoits has declined in popularity over the years, replaced in the US by its derivative--horseshoes (which are easier to throw and more likely to score “ringers”). Today, it’s a regional pastime, played primarily in PA, NJ and NY. Learn everything there is to know about quoits here. They’ll even find you a partner.

Plus it's a good scrabble word.

You haven't lived until you've been hit on a bare foot by an errant quoit. Ah, the memories.

Jarts = pointy danger
Quoits = thunky danger (Just ask Bort.)
