Game Review

The object of My Pole-ish Horseshoes is to throw the Frisbee and knock a can off the pole while holding a 12-ounce beverage can in one hand at all times during the game.  It might sound simple, but it’s quite challenging, and a heck of a lot of fun.

MPH is variation on the popular Beer Frisbee or Frisbeer game.  In most versions of the game, play can be limited by having to reset the pole in the ground.  MPH has improved upon the original concept by creating a unique base that can be used on a better variety of surfaces.

The object of MPH is to hit the pole or the can, but even novice players may earn points if the other team fails to catch their Frisbee.  One point is scored for a Frisbee that isn’t caught.  Two points can be scored if the can hits the pole and knocks off the can — though points are returned for a caught Frisbee and/or can.  Three points can be scored when the Frisbee hits the can off the pole — though 2 points can be returned for caught Frisbee and/or can.The game sometimes starts off a little bit slow, while players develop their accuracy, but before long (and a few beers), it’s common to see players diving and rolling on the ground trying to catch Frisbees and cans.  The longer this game is played, the better it gets!

Packaging: The My Pole-ish Horseshoes game came nicely packaged, in a box that fit the parts and pieces perfectly.  Of course the box was pretty long, to accommodate the tall pieces, but it was lightweight and not very bulky.

Construction: The game assembles very easily, right out of the box.  The pieces fit together like PVC fittings, with no need for glue, screws, or additional tools.  The game comes with two high quality non–chip 54” poles, and sit upon a unique custom base that keeps the poles upright — no need for resetting after shots.  The game also includes a competition quality 9” Frisbee™ for powerful, accurate throws.

Gameplay: The object of My Pole-ish Horseshoes is to throw the Frisbee and knock a can off the pole while holding a 12-ounce beverage can in one hand at all times during the game.

Pros: Really fun. 2 or 4 players.  The custom base allows the game to be played almost anywhere.  Basic rules and scoring.
Cons: My Frisbee cracked right out of the box, but was easily replaced by a pair of $0.99 Pet Smart Frisbees.  Only 1 Frisbee included.  Nothing else, this game was a solid hit.

Overall:
It’s not often that my group of game testers puts a solid seal of approval on a game, but My Pole-ish Horseshoes received that honor.  While the game started off a little slow, we ended up playing for hours and hours.  Out of several games present, the line to challenge was always at the My Pole-ish Horseshoes game.

With a great mix of simple scoring, skillful catching and throwing, teamwork, and honest fun, I would highly suggest this game.  Our group ended up including a second Frisbee so that both players on a team could throw in each round.  It was a fun way to keep from having to remember who threw last!
