This game can be played with one to five players. Each player controls an athlete who has to throw the shot. The object of the game is to make the longest Shot Put throw. Each player gets 3 turns in the game, and the longest throw of the 3 turns is used for each player. During each turn, your athlete must run on the racetrack in a straight line and throw (at a selected angle) the shot to the landing field (where the shot lands after being thrown) without stepping over the foul line. The throw distance is determined (by measuring the distance from the foul line to the spot in the landing field where the shot landed) and displayed. The next player takes the next turn, and this repeats until all players have had 3 turns. After each player has finished 3 turns, the best throw from each player is compared, and the players are ranked from the longest to the shortest throw.
