anybody played before?

i want to send SSG. Gibson, my buddy still in iraq, the stuff to set up a game of washers so they can play at the FOB

only problem is, i don't remember the size washers/hole that the game uses............

FYI, for those that don't know washers is much like horseshoes, only you use a hole instead of a stake and pitch washers instead of horseshoes..............


please donate for a hero rifle if you can and would for injured SSG. Jongema, 1st cavalry, car bomb in baghdad

I tried to pitch a washer once, but ended up throwing my shoulder out. Damned Maytag.

TR, try a google on it. There are a bunch of sites out there with specs and stuff. Even some already built for purchase. Good Luck.

Used to pitch 'em with my grandad when I was a lot younger (35 years). Can't remember the size though. Hell, I always figured it was because we were poor and couldn't afford horse shoes.

I used to pitch quarters, never done the washer thing.

Get two tuna cans and some really big washers that just fit inside. I can't remember the distance to bury them, it has been a long time since I tossed washers.

Why do I have a feeling alot of game in the south started around a poor family trailer.....

I've played washers with my future ex-wife's family and I find it pretty boring. It's just not my type of game, for others it is though.

Washers is a very fun game. Kinda wondering though, is it a Texas/Southwest sorta thing as the guy that taught me to play was from Wichita Falls?

I have a set at the office. We pitch them in the cubicle aisle with a standard sticky note instead of a cup.
