Object of the Game

Like Tic-Tac-Toe, the winner is the first player or team to get three X's or O's in a row - vertically, horizontally or diagonally. But TOSS ACROSS is uniquely fun because the action switches back and forth, again and again.



Game Play

Place toss across on the floor and turn all the targets blank side up.

For 2 Players

  1. Choose who will be X and who will be O. Each player takes 3 Bean Bags and stands on opposite sides of the game base, about 6 feet away.

  2. The X player always starts. Toss 1 beanbag, either underhand or overhand, and try to hit a target.

  3. Now the O player tosses 1 beanbag. The O player may try to hit the same target to reverse it, or try to turn up an O on another target.

  4. Players take turns tossing 1 beanbag per turn until one player wins by turning up 3 of their symbols in a row (either vertically, horizontally or diagonally).

Fun Fact: A single toss can flip more than one target. One minute your opponent may be winning - the next, you are!

For Team Play

  1. When there are 4 players, two stand on either side of the game base, 6 feet away.

  2. Each team takes 3 bean bags and the order of play is as follows:

    • Player 1 on Team X tosses.
    • Player 1 on Team O tosses
    • Player 2 on Team X tosses
    • Player 2 on Team O tosses... and so on until one team turns up 3 of their symbols in a row.


End of the Game

The first player of team to turn up 3 or their symbols in a row wins!
