5 Axe Throwing Games To Spice Up Your Night

Top 5 Axe Throwing Games to Spice Up Your Night

Every time you’ve come to Dueling Axes for a good time, It’s been fun, but you’ve mastered the task of sticking to the target. What’s next? You need a game refresh.

Prepare to engage in some friendly competition, strategy, and new skill challenges with five different games to elevate your time at Dueling Axes. Whether it’s bullseyes you’re after or you’re just around for the cocktails, you’d be surprised what a fun twist to your axe throwing can bring out of you! Here’s our five favorite variations to play when we’re throwing.

Games For A Good Time

League Style

This format is the classic style of axe throwing you’ll be first taught when you visit Dueling Axes, and there’s a reason: it’s tried-and-true, fun, friendly competition! This game is perfect no matter your skill level with axe throwing, because an evenly-skilled opponent is all it takes to create a close-scoring game.

The game plays with two people each taking turns throwing 10 times on separate targets. After 5 throws each, they will switch targets and continue. To win, you’ll need to score points by hitting the rings of the target, the bullseye, or the tiny Killshot blue dot reserved for the 5th and 10th throw. The point values are:

  • Four rings, worth 1 to 4 points, largest to smallest ring
  • Bullseye, worth 6 points
  • Killshot, worth 8 points on 5th and 10th throw, and nothing on the others.
  • Outside the target, or axe fallen off of target, worth no points.

Only the axes stuck to the target count, and if an axe blade is stuck between rings, the higher point value is counted. At the end of the ten throws, the player with more points is crowned champion!

Tic Tac Toe

We’ve all played Tic Tac Toe growing up, but now your throwing skills are on the line to win! Using a target where the ring’s point value corresponds with placement on the classic tic-tac-toe board configuration (see example below), take turns throwing with another player, landing in unclaimed squares and marking them with your signal of choice: ‘X’ or ‘O.’ For example, if you throw a bullseye, place your “X” or “O” on the grid showing the 6. If you throw your axe and it lands in the “1” ring, mark your “X” or “O” in the space on the grid that has a “1”. You win the game when (you’ve guessed it) you’ve made three in a row on the target! If there’s a tie, each square on the board has a point value, in this configuration:
1 2 3
4 6 4
3 2 1
Whichever player has the highest single throw point value wins the tie.

First To 21

Try a little twist to League Style play with another points-based game: First to 21. Take turns throwing as if you’re playing cornhole: 3 throws per turn and record the points of each axe throw that stays stuck until the end of the turn. You win when your score reaches 21 points EXACTLY. If, at the end of a turn, you have over 21 points, you’ve busted! Reset your score to 13 and continue playing until exactly 21 is hit.

Bucket List

Tired of just trying to hit the bullseye? Accept a bigger challenge with Bucket List (similar to the classic darts game – Cricket). With three throws a turn, you and 2-4 other players try to complete your bucket list of items: sticking the axe in each ring’s point value, and the bullseye a total of three times for each number to close it out. Close out each number, and the bullseye to win! If that’s too easy, change the Bucket List to include hitting three Killshots and go for the ultimate challenge.

Magic Number

Accuracy on the throwing target takes a whole new level when you play Magic Number! In this game, each player throw 3 axes each round, during which a different target value exclusively counts for points: the first round, it’s the outermost ring, worth one, and the second, the next closest ring worth two counts. This goes on until you’ve played a round for every ring and the bullseye. After all rounds, the most points wins! You can also upgrade the difficulty by making only Killshots count!

Step into the exciting world of axe throwing, where the age-old art of lumberjacks seamlessly merges with the thirst for thrilling experiences. But don’t be fooled, this captivating sport goes far beyond the surface. Beyond the raw excitement lies a realm of techniques and scientific principles waiting to be unraveled.

Not all throws are created equal; to hit that perfect bullseye demands more than just raw strength. It calls for tact, concentration, and, most importantly, an understanding of the science that governs each and every throw. So, if you’re eager to take your axe throwing game to new heights, read on as we delve into the fascinating science behind it all! From the critical role of velocity in propelling the axe forward to the art of controlling its rotation and finding that elusive release angle, we’ll explore the essential elements that contribute to a perfect throw. But that’s not all; we’ll also equip you with practical advice to fine-tune your technique, ensuring you hit your target with confidence and precision.

Back To Basics

First time axe thrower? You may want to brush up on the nitty gritty axe throwing tips for beginners. Otherwise, keep reading for a full breakdown on the science behind the perfect axe throwing technique!

The Components of A Perfect Axe Throw 

Axes have their own unique ways of being thrown, depending on how they’re designed. That’s why at Dueling Axes, we’ve picked a standard type of axe, which we call our “house axe.” This way, all our coaches are familiar with how this axe works with our setup, and they can give you even better coaching!

Factors like how long the handle is and where the weight is in the axe head makes a big difference in how the axe moves through the air. For example, if the handle is longer, it takes more time for the axe to spin around. This is why in competitions, “Hatchet” event throwers shoot their shot from about 12 feet away, and for the “Big Axe” event, it’s about 17 feet.

Science shows that thinner blades are awesome for throwing because they have less surface area and stick  into the target more easily compared to thicker blades that are intended for spliting and pushing wood apart. You want the blade to be sharp so it doesn’t cuts into  the target board like butter. Handles that are flatter are easier to hold on to compared to round ones. This gives you more control when you throw and let go of the axe!

Balance and Weight Distribution Techniques

Achieving balance brings steady consistency to axe throwing. In this sport, it’s important to rely on the axe head’s weight for rotation instead of using a flicking motion with your wrist, which can vary from throw to throw. Releasing the axe with a straight wrist ensures the dependable rotation from the axe head’s weight. A well-balanced axe keeps your throws consistent and lets you hold the handle just right, so you don’t have to adjust your grip for the correct spin.

A balanced axe matters because it helps you throw consistently, without needing to change your stance or aim during your throw to fix how it flies. Axes that aren’t balanced tend to wobble in the air, making your aim less accurate. When you use an axe with good balance, you can focus on improving your technique instead of trying to make up for a wobbly tool. We’ll circle back to this several times throughout the article. When throwing with us, find comfort in knowing our team checks every axe to make sure it throws smoothly every time, no matter how much experience you have.

How to Keep Your Axe Steady Mid-Air

Imagine a gyroscope, a device that stays stable in both vertical and horizontal directions. When a gyroscope is balanced, it remains steady on all axes. This same idea applies to an axe. If the weight isn’t distributed evenly, the axe wobbles and loses its controlled flight.

As you’ve learned, differences in handle length and weight affect the axe’s flight. A shorter and lighter handle leads to faster rotations, while a longer and heavier one provides better control over rotation.

Finding The Right Grip and Stance

Struggling to hit that bullseye? Believe it or not, you can make a few adjustments in your grip and stance to make it happen. Let’s break it down:

In terms of stance, start by positioning your non-dominant foot slightly ahead of your dominant one, both with a gentle knee bend (like an athletic stance). Make sure your shoulders and chest squarely face the target. Typically, you’ll find yourself aligned with the target board as you aim for the bullseye.

Holding the axe can be done in two primary ways: with both hands or just one. Keep a firm grip without causing your knuckles to turn white. For a double-handed grip, begin by grasping the axe’s base with your dominant hand, then overlay your non-dominant hand on top of the first (similar to gripping a pistol). Extend your arms straight ahead, aligning your elbows and wrists, and position the axe head at eye level – this is your starting position. If you’re going for a single-handed throw, hold the axe’s base with your dominant hand, extend your arm straight forward, align your elbow and wrist, and keep the axe head at eye level. Your other arm can remain comfortably at your side.

Maintain a balanced and steady stance to avoid unintended shifts that could impact your aim during the throw. Find the right distance from the target, striking a balance between avoiding over-rotation from standing too far and preventing under rotation by standing too close. Your stance as a thrower should be moderately wide – enough for stability but not excessively so.

When you step forward to throw, let your non-dominant foot take the lead and shift your weight as you release, directing your momentum into the axe. Hold the axe with your dominant hand near the base of the handle. For a two-handed throw, encompass your dominant hand with the other. And there you have it – the right way to stand to achieve a bullseye-worthy throw. All that’s left is to make sure you’re holding the axe correctly to have total control!

Mastering Your Axe Grip for Precision Control

Not everyone is a natural at mastering their axe grip, and that’s perfectly okay! The way you hold your axe has a profound impact on your ability to precisely control its path.

When an axe starts to wobble in mid-air, it’s often due to a loose wrist. Finding the right balance is crucial. Gripping the axe too tightly can result in a delayed release and a low throw. Conversely, holding it too softly might lead to an early release, causing your throw to soar high without the necessary rotational force. Keeping the axe straight during your throw translates into a direct trajectory. However, tilting it to the left or right will cause it to veer off in the corresponding direction, missing the target.

Resist the urge to flick your wrist as you release the axe – this can generate excessive rotation. Opt for a handle grip without a thumbs-up position. Maintain a grip that’s secure but not overly constricting, preventing any hindrance in releasing the axe or it getting stuck to your palm. Keeping your wrist straight and your hand aligned ensures a clean and precise release, resulting in a straight trajectory for the axe. Your control starts with your grip, so make it count!

Understanding Axe Flight: Unveiling Aerodynamic Principles

Exploring the fascinating world of axe aerodynamics sheds light on the dynamic flight of this tool. To dive deeper into these principles, check out this comprehensive resource that explains the science behind it.

  • Drag and Resistance: The shape of an axe’s components plays a pivotal role in the level of drag experienced during a throw. Axes with minimal surface area facing the oncoming air encounter reduced resistance as they fly.
  • Lift: Lift serves as the counterforce to air resistance, impacting the axe’s trajectory.

Navigating Axe Dynamics: Factors Influencing Movement through the Air

One of the captivating aspects of axe throwing is its accessibility. This skill doesn’t hinge on extraordinary strength. The axe’s weight, just over 1.25 pounds, isn’t formidable. The key lies in the thrower’s ability to propel it from the throwing area to the target with ample force. The axe head’s weight governs its rotation in flight. However, it’s important to find the right balance. Overthrowing can lead to excessive rotation, while under-throwing might result in insufficient rotation. As we mentioned before, loose wrists during the throw can lead to wobbling, and grip tightness, whether too loose or too tight, can similarly affect the outcome. 

Don’t be afraid to ask your axe throwing coach for on-the-spot pointers if you need them – we were all beginners once! 

Deciphering Rotational Dynamics: Unveiling Axe Spin in Flight

When an axe takes flight, its journey is guided by a captivating interplay of forces. This movement involves an intricate rotation centered around the axe’s gravitational midpoint, positioned near the head. This rotation, when harmonized with the force and inertia transferred during the throw, engenders angular momentum. This momentum fuels the axe’s spin, sustaining it until its trajectory is impeded by the target’s impact.

Impact of Axe Spin on Stability and Precision

You know when you see a bike stay upright while moving, but it falls over when it stops? Well, a similar thing happens to the axe. As it moves through the air, the spinning makes it stick to a certain path, just like the bike. This gyroscopic effect helps the axe stay steady and not veer off course.

Crafting a Flawless Release

Releasing an axe in mid-throw might sound simple, but there’s a lot more to it!

Starting from the stance we covered earlier, raise the axe just a bit behind your head, with slightly bent elbows, and hold the axe handle so it forms a 90-degree angle with your forearms. Make sure your shoulders and chest squarely face the target. As you initiate the throw, swing your arms forward in a curved motion, putting some force into it. While maintaining that 90-degree angle, release the axe when your hands come back to about eye level, with your forearms straight ahead and wrists locked. This will result in the axe flying straight ahead, end-over-end.

A word of caution: Don’t twist your body during the throw, and in case of a one-handed throw, don’t let your throwing arm cross your body. These mistakes could make the axe go at an angle and miss the bullseye. Releasing too early makes the throw go high, and releasing too late makes it go low.

For a stable release with minimal arm shake, focus your eyes on the target as you hold the axe over your head (or shoulder for one-handed throws). As you bring your arms and the axe down, release it when the bottom of the axe head reaches eye level. This clean release helps the axe fly steady without wobbling. Remember, the force you give the axe initially, the angle of release, how it rotates, and gravity all work together to shape the axe’s path.

Timing and Angle: The Secrets to Hitting the Bullseye (Plus, a Throwing Tutorial Video)


The key here is to release the axe at eye level, so it heads straight towards the bullseye. For a clearer visual, watch our throwing tutorial video included in this section. It provides additional insights to help you nail that bullseye shot!

May the Force (and Velocity) be With You

In the real world, a successful throw depends much more on factors like the distance, the axe’s weight, and the handle length than just tossing it with extra oomph. Of course, if there’s nothing in the way, adding more force will make the axe travel farther. However, when you use the correct technique we covered earlier, even if you throw with a ton of power, the axe’s rotation should remain consistent, and it should hit the target in a way that satisfyingly sinks into the target.

Now, let’s talk about the potential pitfalls – the risk of using too much force lies in applying it with improper technique. This can lead to an axe break or an unintended bounce off the target. As you throw, the momentum from your body is transferred to the axe. This momentum won’t stop until it hits the target, unless you’re standing way too far away. But the heart of axe throwing isn’t all about muscle power; it’s more about the angle of your throw.

If you toss the axe at too low of an angle (below eye level), two things can happen: 

  1. It won’t align with the bullseye.
  2. It won’t get enough rotations to reach the board – it might just hit the floor or the bottom of the board. 

The angle is where the magic lies in axe throwing, even more than how strong your throw is!

The Intricate Dance of Axe Angles and Flight Paths

Ever wondered how the way you angle and throw the axe, as well as its path through the air, affects your aim? You may be surprised… We often compare the art of axe throwing and hitting your target to a game of golf. Success hinges on technique and maintaining consistency. This consistency allows you to throw from the same spot, with the same axe, in the same way every time – ensuring you hit your target right where you aim. The technique involves using the X and Y axes while avoiding the Z axis.

TL:DR; Don’t tilt the axe to the left or right or spin it sideways when throwing.

The secret lies in releasing the axe at eye level. This rotation is what makes it land neatly parallel to the board, right in front of you. If your angle is too high or low, the number of rotations changes, leading the axe’s trajectory to end without aligning perfectly with the board.

Factors Influencing Aiming Precision: Distance, Wind, and Target Size

Distance plays a big role. As previously mentioned, the axe usually completes one rotation before hitting the target. If it doesn’t, we often advise guests to step back slightly. This provides more distance and time for the axe to rotate fully before hitting. The impact of distance on your throw involves the increased time gravity has to affect the horizontal trajectory – your aim.

In outdoor throws or on a mobile axe trailer, wind conditions come into play. Wind can lead to unstable footing, or it might make your axe veer to the right or left instead of flying straight ahead. Due to the relatively short distance typically thrown in recreational (and competitive) axe thorwing, this isn’t too big of a concern, but worth mentioning. Remember, mastering the bullseye is a combination of technique and understanding these nuanced variables!

Exploring Axe Throwing Styles: Diverse Techniques Embraced by Enthusiasts

For formal competition, the common approach is overhand/above the head throwing. However, there’s a world of trick shots out there that have evolved over time. While those aren’t part of our venue’s practice, let’s focus on the notable styles that are:

  • One-Handed: As the name suggests, this involves holding the axe with one hand and throwing it from over the thrower’s shoulder.
  • Two-Handed: Here, the axe is gripped with both hands and thrown from over the thrower’s head. This style provides added stability and control.
  • Underhanded: In this technique, the axe is held with one hand, with the blade facing backward. It’s then released from the thrower’s chest height. This style offers a unique twist on the traditional throw.

Each style brings its own flavor to the art of axe throwing, and enthusiasts often find joy in experimenting with various techniques!

Transform Your New Axe Throwing Insight into Bullseye Excellence

In the world of axe throwing, excitement and technique collide. Beyond the thrill lies a world of methods and science that shape every throw. It’s not just about power; it’s about balance, precision, and physics. From axe weight to grip and release, you now know how each element contributes to the perfect throw!

As you step up to the line, remember that axe throwing is an art informed by science. Let the knowledge guide your aim, and let your technique bring the thrill. Here’s to hitting the bullseye, armed with both skill and science.

Axe Throwing vs Traditional Sports: Why Axe Throwing Is A Must Do

By | Axe Throwing Insights, Axe Throwing News, Local Love

Axe Throwing Columbus Ohio

In recent years, axe throwing, once reserved for lumberjacks and those from centuries ago, has become an extremely popular activity. But what has made this sport grow in popularity? Breaking the mold of traditional sports, we’ll dive into its unique features and advantages that add axe throwing to the list of appealing alternative sports.

Breaking the Mold: Axe Throwing’s Rise in Popularity

Axe throwing has taken the recreational scene by storm. Dating back to the 1800s as a practical tool in logging camps, it has evolved into a competitive sport and is now offered as a laid-back yet exhilarating activity that you can enjoy with friends.

Columbus axe throwing concept adds mobile facility and Downtown full-service bar

Dueling Axes Downtown Bar

Dueling Axes newest bar addition in Downtown Columbus location

Dueling Axes, Columbus’ premiere indoor axe throwing destination, has a lot to celebrate next month: it’s their 5 year anniversary, they just installed a full-service bar at their Downtown location, and they recently added on a one-of-a-kind Mobile Axe Throwing Facility that’s available to rent out throughout the city.

They want to commemorate their accomplishments with their favorite people: us. From July 5 – 16th, both the Downtown and New Albany locations will boast axe throwing deals, drink deals, and giveaways.

“Our goal has always been to be part of Columbus’ entertainment scene, working with our neighbors to provide our customers an undeniably great experience exploring all our city has to offer,” remarked Jess Hellmich, Chief Marketing Officer of Dueling Axes.

And, in order to remain a steady part of Columbus’ entertainment scene, Dueling Axes made an executive decision to convert one of their Downtown axe throwing lanes into a full, 34 foot long bar, equipped with two 75” flat screen TV’s, featuring a full array of spirits and beers, and nine signature cocktails.

They also expanded their axe throwing opportunities. Now, families and Columbus businesses can rent out their 4-lane mobile axe throwing facility for team outings, employee appreciation events, or just some good ol’ family fun. Chief Operating Officer, Paul Sherry, emphasized, “As COVID has changed the landscape of team outings and employee appreciation events, many of those companies are hosting events on their property, and we want to provide an axe throwing experience to them that is on par with the elevated axe throwing experience we deliver in our brick-and-mortar locations.”

The custom built, 25’ mobile facility is equipped with colorful lighting and speakers for music and announcements. It’s already been featured at Abercrombie & Fitch Headquarters, The Arnold Sports Festival, Crewfest, Columbus Coffee Festival, and Brewdog.

Of course, “Celebrating these milestones calls for more than a single day event,” said Joshua Stambaugh, Dueling Axes Columbus General Manager. “We wanted to do something more…to thank everyone who has been part of the Dueling Axes journey and helped our brand become synonymous with Columbus nightlife.”

So, here’s the two week run-down of deals, events, and giveaways:

July 5-16: all visitors at all Columbus locations will receive up to $15 off a 1, 1.5 or 2-hour reservation, plus 25% off merchandise. Bar deals include ½ off all draft beers until 9pm, signature cocktail specials, and any bar tab of $50 or more will receive a free shot glass. Also, all axe throwers will be entered to win prizes such as a 60” Flat Screen TV, a swag pack, a 2-hour axe throwing gift certificate, and shot glasses.

July 14th: from 7pm-10pm, there will be a huge anniversary party including all of the fun above, plus a live DJ for extra entertainment.

CMO Jess Hellmich wants to thank Columbus for sticking with them through expansions and COVID. “We’re extremely proud of the brand that Dueling Axes has become after 5-years of operation, and it is not lost on us that we have the city of Columbus and its residents to thank for our success…the folks in this city made it clear that axe throwing was something they wanted to keep on doing through it all. For that, we are forever grateful…” Hellmich said.

Although flannel and beards are welcome at this celebration, they’re not necessary. Dueling Axes welcomes everyone to their re-opening and birthday bash.

Why Axe Throwing is the Ultimate Stress-Reliever

By | Axe Throwing Insights, Axe Throwing News, Local Love

best things to do in Columbus, OH: axe throwing

Discover the perfect balance between adrenaline and relaxation with axe throwing, a thrilling recreational activity that has captured the hearts of many right here in Columbus, OH and beyond.
Originating in the early 1800s as a survival skill, axe throwing has transformed into an exciting pastime that offers more than just a rush of excitement.

Uncover the hidden benefits of this unique sport as we dive into why it’s the ultimate stress-reliever. From staying in shape to achieving mental clarity, axe throwing has it all. Let’s embark on this journey and explore why axe throwing is the ideal remedy for stress and a fantastic addition to your list of things to do in Columbus, OH.

Physical Benefits of Axe Throwing

When it comes to stress relief, axe throwing offers more than just a way to blow off steam. The physical benefits of this sport are often underestimated, but they play a significant role in achieving overall well-being.

Release of Tension

When was the last time you had the chance to release some pent-up tension with a satisfying throw? Axe throwing allows you to unleash the stress and strain of daily life in a safe and controlled environment. As you draw back your arm and release the axe towards the target, you’ll feel the physical tension melt away, leaving you with a sense of relief, relaxation and achievement.

But axe throwing is not just about relieving tension; it’s also a full-body workout. With each throw, you engage a variety of muscle groups, from your core and arms to your legs and back. The repeated motions of drawing back, stepping forward, and releasing the axe provide a unique exercise experience that combines strength training and cardiovascular activity.

Who knew that having fun could also be an excellent way to stay in shape? But there’s more to gain than a physical workout.

Psychological Benefits of Axe Throwing

Engaging in axe throwing not only benefits your body but also your mind. The psychological benefits are what make axe throwing such a unique and effective stress-relieving activity – be it for a date night or the entire family!

Focused Mindfulness

In a world filled with distractions, axe throwing offers a chance to disconnect from the noise and focus on the present moment. As you stand in front of the target, your attention narrows, and all that matters is hitting the bullseye. The concentration required to aim for the target with precision demands your full mindfulness. This intense focus helps to calm the mind, allowing you to escape from the pressures and worries of everyday life.

Cathartic Release

There’s something undeniably cathartic about hurling an axe towards a wooden target. With each throw, you release not only the axe but also the stress and tension you’ve been carrying. The act of throwing can provide a powerful emotional release, allowing you to let go of negative energy and frustrations. It’s a therapeutic experience that leaves you feeling lighter, refreshed, and ready to take on the world with renewed vigor.

As with any skill, practice makes perfect. Axe throwing lounges offer the perfect environment for honing your skills and reaping the rewards.

The Value in Continuous Practice and Professional Coaching

To truly benefit from axe throwing as a stress-reliever, it’s essential to embrace the value of continuous practice. Throwing regularly allows your body and mind to experience its full potential.

Body and Mind Alignment

As you practice axe throwing, you’ll notice a harmonious connection forming between your body and mind. Each throw becomes an intentional act, requiring focus, balance, and precision. This alignment not only improves your throwing accuracy but also deepens the stress-relieving effects of the sport. With each release of the axe, you can feel the worries and pressures of everyday life melting away.

Expert Guidance from Axe Throwing Coaches

Many axe throwing lounges have professional coaches on standby to assist and guide you in perfecting your technique. These coaches offer valuable insights, tips, and corrections to ensure that each throw is executed with intention. Their expertise enhances your overall experience and helps you achieve optimal stress relief through axe throwing.

Pro tip: You’ll always have the one-on-one training necessary when you visit any Dueling Axes location. A certified coach will walk you through axe throwing tips for beginners, as well as answer any questions you may have about techniques, axe throwing games, and so on.

An Enjoyable Experience for Everyone

This sport offers so much more than stress relief; it’s an incredible, inclusive experience that is perfect for corporate events, first dates, family bonding, and so much more.

Social Engagement

Axe throwing is not only a solo endeavor, but a fantastic social activity. Gather your friends, colleagues, or family members and embark on an adventure that promises laughter, friendly competition, and shared memories. As you take turns throwing axes, the atmosphere buzzes with excitement and camaraderie. It’s a unique bonding experience that brings people closer together, fostering connections and creating lasting friendships.
