The best thing about table shuffleboard is that ANYONE can play and have fun. Depending on where the shuffleboard table is, players can be anyone with any level of skill and experience. Although itís hard to master and always challenging, shuffleboard offers one of the most fairest playing fields you will find in sport. The skill-level gap between being a beginner and experienced is smaller than in games like pool, table tennis and darts, so everyone feels like they have a chance to win any time they approach the table. Practice makes perfect and as with all games of skill, some people will play better. We have compiled some basic shuffleboard table gameplay rules they can be viewed here:†Shuffleboard Gameplay Rules
"Important: Our shuffleboard tables require very little assembly. The table itself arrives as a single piece that is either 9-ft. or 12-ft. long and approximately 2-1/2-ft. wide. Please measure carefully any doorways, hallways, winding staircases, and/or tight corners that need to be negotiated in order to get your new shuffleboard into the desired room prior to shipping. We recommend 2 people with a string cut to the length of the board; take a trial walk along this path in your home to insure that the shuffleboard will fit. The shuffleboard will come on a single skid with two separate boxes containing the table and the table legs, at a total weight of up to 400 lbs. The 9-ft. and 12-ft. table box alone weighs 220 lbs. or 285 lbs. respectively. Our standard delivery includes curbside delivery by appointment. To help avoid damages at the time of delivery, we highly recommend having at least 2 - 3 people available to assist in unloading this table and moving it into your home."

To play table shuffleboard, you need a shuffleboard table and eight shuffleboard weights, four for each person. Liberally sprinkle the table with silicone beads or table wax to reduce friction with the weights. Flip a coin to decide which player goes first, the winner of the flip can choose to go first or second. The player who goes second has the last shot of the game known as the "hammer." For this reason, it is considered advantageous to go second.
Both players stand at one end of the table. The player who goes first slides a weight towards the opposite end of the table. The goal is to get the weight to land as close to the edge of the table as possible without falling off. If the weight does not cross the closest foul line, it must be removed from the game. After the first player has shot, the second player takes a turn and tries to land his weight closer to the edge and/or knock the first player's weight off the board.
