Hammer-SchlagenHammerschlagen is back! It's a great game involving nails and hammers, so what could be better.  Here’s the “real” rules, but the most important rule involves having your “favorite beverage” in your left hand while you’re playing! Got to stay cool after all...

  • Each player purchases a nail to start the game
  • Men use one hand only, ladies have the option of using two hands
  • Grip the hammer behind the red safety line
  • Must use wedge end of the hammer to strike the nail
  • Wedge end of the hammer must be on the wood and touching the nail to start
  • Player has one continuous swing at nail per turn, if the nail is not driven flush into the log then the hammer is passed to the next player
  • Arc of hammer swing can be no higher than the players ear
  • If the nail bends, the player can move to any position around the table to strike the nail for their next turn, or the nail may be straightened and counted as a turn
  • To win, the nail must be flush or below the surface of the wood
  • No body parts or foreign objects on the table (bottles and glasses)
  • The Game Master has the right to refuse play to any person before, during or after a game
  • Local rules may also apply at the discretion of the game master
  • "Play At Your Own Risk"
  • Have A Good Time!
