Begun more than 500 years ago as a game for European royalty, shuffleboard is becoming more popular with Americans who see it as a less expensive alternative to golf.

Step 1: Choose the players
Decide if you’ll be playing singles or doubles and choose the players. Shuffleboard can be played with two players or two teams of two.

Step 2: Learn the game
Familiarize yourself with the court. An outdoor shuffleboard court is a rectangle with a triangle at either end. The triangles are divided into different scoring zones.

Step 3: Choose your pucks
Choose a puck color for each player or team; each side gets four pucks. Line them up in the 10-off area at the base of the triangle and flip a coin to see who will go first.

Step 4: Play the first round
Take turns pushing pucks toward the opposite triangle with the cues. Triangles are divided into ten-, eight-, and seven-point areas, plus a 'ten-off' zone. Aim for the areas with the most points. Leave all played pucks in place until the end of the round -- after each side has played four pucks.

Try to knock your opponent’s pucks off high-scoring zones and into the ten-off zone.

Step 5: Tally scores
Tally the scores based on where the pucks lay at the end of the round. Points count only if pucks are entirely within a scoring zone, not touching the edges. If a puck lands entirely within the ten-off zone, subtract ten points from the score.

Step 6: Continue playing
Continue playing. After each round, switch sides. The first player or team to reach 50 points for a short game -- or 100 points for a longer -- wins the game.

ABC Creative Group: Poundgate, A Shuffleboard Controversy

On October 21, 2015 during a spirited shuffleboard match at the headquarters of ABC Creative Group an incident of what appears to be blatant cheating was caught on video.

Marty Hulk Smash Furgal claims that his team was denied 3 points when Mike Tom Brady Haines intentionally pounded his fists down upon the shuffleboard table after one of his pucks failed to knock off the opposing teams puck as was his intent. The result of this action caused said puck to fall off the table.

You be the judge. Were the laws of physics to blame or is this a clear case of cheating?
