Do you washoo?

Washoo

According to urbandictionary.com washoo is "Best backyard game in the world."
used in a sentence: "I'm Jonesin' to play Washoos this weekend."

According to Yahoo!: This game goes by many names: Holey Board/Holeyboard, Irish Quoits, Redneck Horseshoes, Ringers, Texas Horseshoes, Washoes, Washoo or Washers.

Whatever it's called it is surprisingly fun and addictive. Here is our attempt at Washoos at our annual Redneck weekend in Beverly Beach (we were there for the Daytona NASCAR race).

How to Play Washers: (from gameofwashers.com)
The game of washers is similar to horseshoes. Though these rules are how many people choose to play, they are not the only way to play. Keep in mind that the point of pitching washers is really just to have fun.
The game is often played with four people on teams of two that attempt to toss metal washers into a wooden box 20-25 feet away. You score points by either getting the washer in the box (1 point) or by getting the washer in the center tube (3 points). The winning team is the first to get to a predetermined point number (usually 15 or 21).
