Hole Survivor Game Explanation
This pro tip comes from our friends at the Extra Pint Crokinole Club in Voorheesville, New York. Let us delve into how the game of Hole Survivor works.
Number of Players: Let us assume you have four players of even skill level sitting around the table.
Equipment: Each player gets three discs, and they will sit on the side of the table.
Objective: The goal is to be the Hole Survivor, lasting the longest in the game.
On your turn, you shoot for an open 20.
If you successfully sink the open 20, you keep the disc and put it back in your pile.
If you miss, you take the button off the board, placing it in the gutter. You lose that button.
The game continues with everyone taking turns in this manner.
Final Two Players Scenario
When it gets down to the final two players, missing a shot does not necessarily end the game.
The other player needs to sink their 20 to outlast the opponent.
