Each player pitches both shoes followed by the opponents two shoes.
In pitching a shoe, the player may not cross the foul line.
When playing teams, half the team throws from one stake and half throws from the other.
Games can be played to 40 points in a point limit game or 40 shoes in a shoe limit game. In the shoe limit game the player with the highest points wins. If a tie exists then each player can take a half win or a two inning tie breaker can be thrown.
