How To Play

Game Play

  • Game play can be played with teams of 1 on 1, 2 on 2, 3 on 3, etc.
  • Teammates will stand on the same side behind their designated pole which will be placed 30 feet or 10 steps apart. Place one bottle on top of each pole.
  • In order to determine which team starts flip the flying disc in the air calling out heads (side with Glowski logo) or tails (open side without logo).
  • Glowski is often played as a one-handed game, so we recommend holding a beverage of your choice in one of your hands during game play to make the game a bit more exciting.

Scoring

  • The teams alternate throwing the disc at the opposing teams bottle or pole in order to score points.
  • The first team to reach 21 points wins, but you must win by two points.
  • The disc hitting the ground is worth 1 point.
  • The bottle hitting the ground is worth 2 points.
  • Both the disc and bottle hitting the ground is worth 3 points.
  • The objective is to knock the bottle off the pole to score more points, however the non-throwing team can catch the bottle and/or disc before hitting the ground to prevent those points from being scored.
  • If the bottle is caught, but not the disc, the throwing team receives 1 point.
  • If the disc is caught, but not the bottle, the throwing team receives 2 points.
  • If both the disc and the bottle are caught, the throwing team receives 0 points.
  • If neither the bottle or disc are caught, the throwing team receives 3 points.
  • If the disc is dropped without it hitting the bottle or pole, the throwing team receives 1 point.
  • Keep in mind that the throwing team will not receive a point for a dropped disc if the disc is uncatchable and is thrown too high, too low, or more than 1 step away from the catching team.
  • In addition, if a disc is not given the opportunity to hit the bottle or pole and is caught in front of the pole, the throwing team is automatically awarded 3 points.
  • Finally, a team with 20 points cannot win off a dropped disc alone. They must have hit the pole or bottle during their throw in order to win.
