Video: Portuguese Horseshoes

Anyone ever played Portuguese Horseshoes while tailgating? I’ve heard of Polish Horseshoes and even Ladder Golf being called “Redneck Horseshoes” but I’ve never heard of Portuguese Horseshoes. This video is from 2008 but this is the first I have seen it.


From the looks of the video it appears to be a single hole washer game but they have added a “backstop” of some sort to prevent shots from going over or can bounce back onto the playing surface. After some brief research on the web, it appears that Portuguese Horseshoes are pretty popular in Hawaii but the popularity has not transferred over to the mainland.

Anyone played this game while tailgating? If not, this might be a new game to bring to the lot this weekend.
