    Do you know how you count if you have two rocks that are tied

    • Bill B says:

      Hello Alf – Thanks for the question. Sorry for the late reply but just getting cleaned up after the holidays here.
      After all the 8 disks are shot from one end, ALL “good” disks (in the scoring triangle and not on a line) are counted and added to the scores (Yellow’s and Black’s). Does this answer your question?

    • Bill B says:

      Alf – The rule is that after all 8 disks have been shot, all “good disks” (in the scoring diagram and not overlapping a line) are counted and add to the scores of each team. Fpr example, if Yellow has a good 7 and a good 8, and Black has a good 7 and two good 8s and one in the 10-off, then Yellow gets 15 points (7 + 8 = 15) added to their previous score, while Black gets 13 (7 + 8 + 8 – 10 = 13) added to their previous score.
