Blackout - How To Play

GAME SETUP: Divide into 2 teams (1-2 players per team) and choose a cork color for your team. Each team will get 10 corks. Next, place the cups on the board according to the pattern shown above. Teams will stand approximately 6 steps back (one person measures using the heel to toe technique) from the Corkaine gameboard on opposite ends (or the same side if playing in a confined location) and place down their spot markers to mark their shooting distance. Gameplay begins after one quick round of paper-rock-scissors to determine which team goes first.

GAMEPLAY: Teams take turns shooting their corks one at a time at the cups on the gameboard. Once all corks have been shot by both teams, the round ends and both teams approach the gameboard to see which cups they have won. The team with the most corks in any one cup wins that cup and then takes that cup off of the board and adds it to their team's stash. Once all of the winning cups are accounted for, all corks are gathered up by both teams and a new round begins. Rounds of gameplay continue until the first team who adds 12 cups to their stash is declared the winner and ends the game.
