 Gongshow Saucer King Official Rules of Play

Last year, during the Gongshow Off Season Training Video Shoot with all our hockey buddies on the beach screwing around, a game was invented to kill time and crush a few cold ones.  We called it Gongshow Saucer King….turns out it’s a unreal game for hockey players to mess around in the off season and you can play it anywhere – on the beach, back yard, the street, or at a party. Since we posted the rules of play the game has taken off around the world, especially in Canada and the US – for the record, here are the OFFICIAL RULES OF PLAY:

Players:  Saucer King can be played 1 vs 1 or it can be played as teams (2 vs 2) – rules are the same for both singles and doubles.


Equipment:  Each player needs a twig, you need one puck (more if you throw brutal saucers) , you will need 2 platforms to throw the saucers off of (this can be a peice of plywood, basically anything you can get a puck launched off of), and a 2 small nets  this can be anything you have really, but should be about the size of 2 empty beer box cases (this is often what we use with a weight on the inside) – if you really want a legit setup snag a few mini hockey nets like we had here in the picture). You will need something to throw the saucers over in the middle of the two  nets – ideally this is a keg of beer, but it can be shorter depending on the distance you have to play with – longer the distance the higher the obstacle.  The height of the middle object is discretionary but rule of thumb is that it should be around 2 feet high.


Rule #1

Distance – distance is flexible, we recognize that not everyone has a corn field like “Field Of Dreams” behind their house, so use your discretion here fellas – to increase difficulty, make the distance between the two nets further apart.  As you go further. the obstacle in the middle can become higher – and vice versa if you make the game closer.  To decide who shoots first, the players take turns saucing pucks back and forth until one of them gets it in the net (as a general rule, if one team is wearing Gongshow he automically goes first – if both teams are you must have a shoot off).


Rule #2

Player must always clear the obstacle in the middle with a distinct saucer pass – no flipping the pucks etc – dont be a plug.  If the puck does not clear and still goes into the net – the goal does NOT count.  The puck has to end up in the net, so there is no need to regulate that the puck should go right over the obstacle – because its lined up with the net.


Rule #3

Each time you score a goal, you get a letter – the word is G-O-N-G-S-H-O-W that you must spell out to win the game.  Basically it takes 8 goals to win GONGSHOW Saucer King.  You must win by 2 snipes, if you are tied the 2nd word begins of SAUCER and KING etc until a winner is proclaimed.


Rule #4


If playing Doubles (2 on 2) each player takes one shot.  Example.  Team GONGSHOW player #1 shoots, and then team Gongshow Player #2 shoots. You can potentially score 2 goals in one shooting if your good.


Rule #5 

If you are of legal drinking age – the following variation of the game can be played:  Each time the other team scores in your net,  you must chug your beer.  If playing teams, only 1 player has to chug the beer for his team (can be either player)- this way you can get through the game, and at a max only have to drink 4 beers each.  Basically there is an element of Beer Pong in Gongshow Saucer King.


Another Variation – you can play BackHanded Saucer King – which is obviously allot harder and requires more skill.


Enjoy fellas, be safe and like anything if your drinking be smart and no your limits- and spread the word (please share this) to your hockey buddies ONLY – if you have good videos or pics playing this beaut of a game- post them up, we are picking one winner for the best video or pic for some free swag!  Also, like and TWEET this to be entered as well!
