Axe Throwing

Axe throwing is a sport in which the competitor throws an axe at a target, attempting to hit the bulls eye as near as possible.

An Overview of Axe Throwing

Axe Throwing is a target sport, similar to darts. Players stand behind a foul line, and try to throw their axe into the target. The targets are labelled like most target sports, with the highest points in the bullseye, and decreasing the further your axe lands from the centre. At the end of the game, players add up their throws and the highest score wins.
