How to Play

These are the official Flimsee Rules, noted carefully for maximum fun, and the highest levels of competition.

  • The team with the shortest player throws first. (1 on 1, or 2 on 2 )
  • Each player on the throwing team throws one disc. When they finish it is the other team’s turn.
  • On defense, players may not goal tend or touch sticks. On offense players must throw from behind the sticks
  • The offense earns TWO points by throwing the Disc clean through the opponents Flimsee Sticks, below the highest point of the Cups, and above the grass (note: If both players on a team send it clean through on a single turn, the discs are sent back)
  • The offense earns ONE point for each of their opponent’s Cups that are knocked to the ground, even if the disc does not make it on the fly.
  • The Defense can prevent scoring by catching the Cup(s) as they are bounced off the Flimsee Stick(s)
  • Teams must switch sides after one team scores six 6 points to prevent any difference in setup or advantage to any team
  • Team without the shortest player gets the last throwing attempt
  • First team to twelve (12) points is the Winner!
  • Teams do not need to win by 2 and it becomes sudden death if opposing team reaches 12 points on final throw.
  • Have fun!
