POINTS
6 points for the bullseye; 5 points for the first ring; 4 points for the second ring; 3 points for the third ring; 2 points for the fourth ring; 1 point for the fifth ring; 8 points for the Killshot (small, blue circles).
CALL THE KILLSHOT
Before the throw, the player must make clear that he intends on throwing for the Killshot. This is called "calling the Killshot," which will activate it for the full 8 points. If the player misses, no points are awarded.
STICK THE AXE
The axe must "stick" in the target for the points to count. If it falls before the official scores the throw, it's considered a drop and no points are awarded for the throw.
TECHNICALITIES
If the scoring area of an axe is embedded in the wood between two ring sections, referred to as "breaking," then the player is awarded the points for the higher-valued section.
