Also known as Peel Billiards and Deck Billiards.
A deck shuffleboard court comprises two oval scoring areas separated by a distance of 30 feet. Within each oval, the central portion has the shape of a square divided into 9 sub-squares that are scored from left to right 8, 1, 6, 3, 5, 7, 4, 9, 2. Note that each diagonal or orthogonal row of 3 numbers sum 15, is a magic square. The top and bottom edges of the square form the straight sides of two adjacent semicircles glued on the top and bottom of the square to form the oval shape. The far semicircle gets 10 points, while the near one gets 10 points. Each oval scoring area measures 6 feet from front to back. One more foot behind the furthest vertex of each oval is the Knight's line. At 2 feet in front of the near apex of each oval is the Damas line.
Play the game with eight wooden discs, about 6 inches in diameter, that the standing players push along the deck with long signs. Each sign is a stick with a "shoe" on the other end. The shoe is a rectangular piece of wood with a semicircle cut on the opposite side to fit around a disk. They mark 4 discs with one color, the other four with a different color.
Players throw a coin to decide who starts first and then slide the discs to the target area from behind the Knight's line. It is legitimate and often desirable to make the discs hit each other, thus changing the position of one's discs for the better or the discs of the opponents for the worse. Quito any disc that does not reach the line of Ladies of the work.
Once all discs have been pushed, any disc is within a scoring area and does not touch a line, it scores the value shown. Then, players begin a new "end" by playing from behind the Knight's line at the opposite end towards the other target area.
The first player in the winning total, which is 50 or 100 points, wins.
The game lends itself to doubles with each partner playing from the same end throughout the game.
