How to Play Slingshot
Now you don’t need to have a dozen people gathered around at a birthday barbecue to enjoy the Slingshot Puck game, a classic outdoor tradition we’ve brought to your screen. This fun and creative game is like a board game and a sport all in one. Here’s how it works: First, pick your character. Then, pick the number of players you’d like to compete against. Then, when it’s time to play, aim your shot and launch puck after puck out of your section of the game board and into your opponent’s. Your objective in this Slingshot Puck game is to get all of the pucks out of your section of the board. It may sound easy at first, but your opponent(s) will be launching pucks at you as well, which makes it hard to get a clear shot. Pucks will be bouncing around and deflecting this way and that, so you’ll find that you just might score on yourself a few times. Plus, that slat of wood in the middle narrows your options, so make sure to aim well!
From the Board to Your Screen
For anyone who’s curious, this fast Slingshot game is indeed based on a real, physical board game. You can pick up slingshot ball and puck games online or at your local games store and challenge a friend. Wondering where this genre got its start? Would you believe that it’s closely based on a very old French game known as table a l’elastique? Even better, did you know that the French used to use intestines instead of regular rubber bands or bungee cords to make their slingshots? As this game spread to other countries, and after the invention of the Internet, it eventually made its way to mobile games. If you prefer the board game version, don’t worry – you don’t have to use cat intestines. Still, it can be hard to find a board these days, and with this online Slingshot hockey game, you can play with up to three AI opponents whenever you want!
Who Said It’s Just Pucks?
Whenever a classic (and we mean really, really classic) game becomes adapted for this modern audience of online/mobile gamers, we almost always get all kinds of fun variations to go with it. It wouldn’t be a mobile game port if we didn’t have Fruit Slingshot, for example, the game that allows you to hurl tasty produce at targets for points. Whether you want to keep the rules exactly the same or go on a bit of a fun departure, we have slingshot ball games, foosball slingshot games, and all kinds of other switch-ups for you to enjoy. It may not transport you directly to medieval France, but in a way, playing this Slingshot Puck game (sometimes referred to as Pucket) will bring a playable piece of history right to your fingertips – and completely for free. Get ready for some serious plinking around, because Slingshot is a fun and fast-paced bonanza from the first “twack” of that elastic band!
