This is from a friend. The game is a blast at family get togeathers and parties.
I've seen washers played several ways. The way we play in league is the inside dia is 12"x12". Sides are made from 1"x 4" with 1/4" plywood screwed to the bottom. The cup is centered with 1/4" PVC and is 4" in dia and 6" high. The cup is almost 2' higher than the sides. Washers are 2" in diameter.The pits are 20' apart center to center. I have seen boxes that were almost 2' wide and two inches hi on the sides but have never thrown on them.:toast-yellow::toast-yellow::dancinred:

Ah, Pitchen washers.
My grandpa has a set up out back that we used when I was little. ###From what I remember, it was like you described. ###The boxes were about 12 inches square. ###We didn't have a PVC cup, just some old butter dishes from the kitchen. ###Set the boxes about 10 paces apart and toss away. ###We always played to 21, 2 points if yuu made it in the cup and 1 point if you were the closest. ###
Good times. ###Great memories.

I used to play washers with a good family friend on camping trips. The boxes were about 18"x36" and the washers were probably 2" or bigger. Each box had three holes, which varied in size. They were connected with a small chain, so the distance was always the same, about 12 ft. I would guess. We played it kinda like a cross between horseshoes and shuffleboard. One player threw from one end, then his opponent from the same end, if you could get a washer in the hole where the previous guy just hit, it cancelled his shot. Hope you understand how I am explaining this, lol! It was a blast, and provided hours of entertainment for people of all ages.

Take a look at the washer toss (we call it disk toss) game I made a couple years ago. I used eight stainless steel disks that are 3" diameter and 1/8" thick. The game boards are made of 1/2" plywood with carpet cemented and stapled onto the playing surface. I keep the game out at our farm and many of our family, friends, and hunting buddies have enjoyed it for many hours.
I found the steel disks at a fabricator near me. They had about 900 pounds of them and the owner said I could take a few of them. They work perfect. As you can see, I drilled a hole in the center of four of them to tell one player from the other.
