What is Fast Sling Puck Board Game?

The Table Hockey game primarily consists of two players but it is possible to play the game in groups as well. When it was first invented, the game required players to take turns slinging the pucks, unlike the current version where both players start firing simultaneously.

The board of this game is rectangular in size divided in the middle with only a small gap that the puck can fit through in the middle commonly referred to as a gate.

On both ends of the board, there is an elastic band the players can use to fire the pucks. There are 10 small circular disks usually called pucks that come with the game. 5 pucks are placed on each side of the board and the game is ready to be played.

The most popular method of starting the game is to clap thrice with your opponent using both of your hands. Once the starting signal is given both players start shooting their pucks so that they go through the gate to the opposing side and do not reflect back on their own side.
