It’s easier than you think. And HEROIC AXE is a safe place where you can discover how much fun it is. It’s natural to have questions about axe throwing. Here are the ones we get asked the most.
GENERAL RULES AND INFO
Q: What is axe throwing and how does it work?
A: Axe Throwing is the fastest growing sport in the USA and can be a fun activity for a date, party or family activity. And, of course, it’s a great way to relieve some stress. You don’t have to be an athlete to enjoy it, either. It’s often described as a combination of darts and horseshoes with more dramatic results. Participants take turns throwing a 1-2 pound axe at a wooden target 12 feet away. The winner being the one who scores the most points or hits closest to the bull’s-eye.
