COLUMBIA — On Saturday afternoon, Hearnes Center was home to the shuffleboard and washers competitions of the 2014 Missouri State Senior Games.
Shuffleboard can have singles or doubles matches, while a game of washers is played between just two competitors.
Competitor Kenneth Eckert, of Bridgeton, said shuffleboard is an "equalizing sport." Scoring for the game depends on where on the board players' discs land. The smaller the triangle portion of the court, the more points earned. Players can alter the score by sliding others' discs around the court with their own.
Mike Foreman, of Colorado, began playing washers after seeing his mother play. A washers game is won by the first player to reach 21 points, or the highest score in 12 innings of play.
The electronic darts competition was also held at Hearnes Center on Saturday.
