What Is Axe Throwing?
Axe throwing is a sport that has grown in popularity over the last few years. It is a target sport where you stand behind a designated line and throw axes towards a target. The goal of the sport is to score the most points. The target features a classic "bull's eye" surrounded by rings that each hold a specific point value. A bull's eye will yield the highest point value, with the points for each ring decreasing as they get farther from the center.
You may notice that certain axe throwing targets will have additional dots located on them. These smaller dots are known by multiple names, including the "clutch" or "kill shot". Depending on where you play and who you are playing with, hitting these dots at certain points in the game can add even more points to your score.
