Sweeping the Nation!

Fork Master is the newest and greatest backyard game. A cross between lawn darts, horseshoes, and bocce combine to form a game of skill and excitement. Let's see you Stick It!

Standard Equipment

  1. A playing area at least 10 paces long, (beach, park, backyard...)
  2. A standard issue BBQ fork for each player
  3. A target, normally a piece of fruit (official fruit: lemon)

How To Play

  • Each of two players takes a target and stands back to back in the center of the playing area
  • Each player takes 4 paces (just like a duel) and places the target on the ground
  • All players stand at one target and throw towards the other
  • Closest Stick To the target scores the point
  • If a player has a clean Stick in the target, the game is over, unless the one of the following players goes over the top

Basic Rules

  1. The Stick: All prongs are first to stick in the ground, with the handle off the ground by the height of the thrower's fist
  2. Point: awarded to closest Stick
  3. Turns: Players alternate, in order of the last to score a point.
  4. Over the Top: the second Stick wins, if distance from target is disputed
  5. Game Winner: a clean Stick in the target


  • Quick: first to 2 games, 2 points per game
  • Tournament: first to 3 games, 3 points per game
  • Championship: first to 4 games, 4 points per game
