Axe Throwing 101

Axe throwing has been recently rapidly growing and spreading in popularity throughout the United States as a new favorite bar game and sport. The axe throwing pastime is expected to only continue to grow in popularity for many years to come, especially among the younger demographic.

Axe Throwing Targets

Axe throwing bears resemblance to dart throwing. Players’ objective is to safely throw their axe towards the target to hit it as close as possible to the target. Axe throwing targets have:

Axe Throwing

Target Points

  • • Bullseye (6 points)
    • • Innermost ring, closest to bullseye (4 points)
    • • 2nd innermost ring (3 points)
    • • 3rd innermost ring (2 points)
    • • Outermost ring (1 point)
  • • Killshot, two small dots on the outer ring (8 points)

Note: Players can only attempt the killshot at certain times during the game.

Axe Throwing Rules

When you book an evening for your Dallas axe throwing party, you’ll want to know what the rules are for axe throwing before you begin. This ensures your safety and the safety of other players around you, and helps everyone to have as much fun as possible.


• A standard game of axe throwing includes ten throws, followed by the tiebreakers.

• The player with the highest number of points after the ten throws wins. In an axe throwing game, the highest score that can be achieved is 64 points (8×6)+(2×8).

• The killshot is available to attempt on the fifth and tenth throws of the match.

How to Safely & Correctly Throw an Axe

Before throwing your axe, you’ll want to know some safety measures to protect yourself and other fellow players during gameplay. Additionally, having a proper understanding of how to throw also helps you become more proficient at axe throwing, so that you can become a pro in no time!

At Viking Axe Throwing, we do have a pre-game axe throwing tutorial to help players new to the sport learn axe throwing rules before giving it a go.

Below are some general guidelines to follow to ensure everyone’s safety:

Axe Throwing

• Prior to throwing your axe, you’ll want to ensure that the area around you is clear of other players. Don’t throw your axe while someone is near the target or walking towards the target to collect their axe. You will want to have a minimum of a 6-foot radius surrounding you that is clear of other players. Keep a “throw together, retrieve together” mindset when playing. Everyone should throw their axes, and then everyone should approach the board at the same time to retrieve their axes.

• Before throwing your axe, be sure to sharpen it. This not only helps it to stick to the target easier, it also lessens potential of causing a dangerous throw to players around you. After sharpening your axe, DO NOT touch the blade directly, to avoid slicing your fingers. As a general rule, the sharper and thinner the profile of your axe, the more readily it will stick to your target.

• When throwing your axe, you’ll want to ensure you have a firm grip on it. This is similar to a grip on a baseball bat. Keep the head of your axe as straight to the target as possible to prevent it from flying sideways.

Axe Throwing Techniques

2 Ways to Throw Your Axe:

1. Two-handed throw over the head. (Better for beginners). Grip the axe with both hands, bringing your axe back over your head. This is much like throwing a soccer ball. We recommend keeping a lighter grip on the axe with two fists (like when holding a golf club). The harder you grip onto the axe, the more it will become difficult when you need to release while also keeping the axe straight. Next, bring your arms and axe forward and release once your hands line up with where you want to throw, at eye level. Don’t use any wrist motion or try to guide the axe throw with your fingers. Just release the axe and let it follow its path to the target.

2. One-handed throw over the shoulder. (More advanced). To start, you should line up your right shoulder and foot (or left shoulder and foot) with the target’s bullseye. This is similar to a game of darts. To begin, swing your axe beside your leg and use that momentum to bring up the axe up past the ear of the throwing hand. Release the axe once your throwing arm is parallel to the floor. When throwing the axe using the one-handed throw, upon release, don’t use any wrist motion or attempt to guide the throw with your fingers. Just release the grip on your axe and allow its momentum to throw it forward.

Tip: If you find that you’re dropping your axe frequently and you’re using the one-handed throw technique, try switching to the two-hand method to gain more power in your throws.

Axe Throwing

Proper Distance from the Target:

How close should I stand to the target during an axe throwing game?

The proper distance from the target is important to the success of your gameplay.

As a general rule of thumb, you will want to stand about 12 feet away from the target, however, you may need to adjust where you’re standing depending on how the axe hits the board. Watch for when your axe isn’t landing flush with the target.

Below are some guidelines to follow:

• If the blade of the axe hits the board, you are standing at the perfect distance away from the target!

• If the top of your axe hit the board, it was over-rotated. To adjust, you will need to take a half step closer to the target.

• Did the bottom of the axe hit the board? The throw was under rotated. To adjust, you should take a half step back away from the target.

You’re well on your way to throwing like a pro!
