If you don’t live in Pennsylvania you may never have seen this game, but it is played similar to horseshoes. The pins are typically closer together than in horseshoes, and only quoits that land right side up count! An upside down quoit is known as a “turtle” or sometimes a “woman”.

I added a spot for a little scorekeeping device. Quoits in PA is often played while drinking beer, so something to help me remember the score is handy.

This is a modified Japanese style toolbox, made from scraps of cherry and maple that I had around the shop. Held together with glue, cut nails, and a couple dowels. Cherry doesn’t take nails very well, even with pre drilling, so I used dowels in places I had to remove the nails due to splitting.
