Why host an axe throwing party?

An axe throwing birthday party, work event, or school outing is a fun-packed adventure. You’re bound to have plenty of thrills, no matter your age.

Axe throwing is a game of target striking, like darts and archery. Aim the conventional wood-chopping tool at a circular board to hit the specific target. Each person gains points based on how many targets they hit. The one with the highest score wins!

An axe throwing party isn’t just a fun time; it builds skills, strength, and precision. The activity can benefit players therapeutically, providing a cathartic way of relieving stress. It also improves hand-eye coordination, grip, and focus. 

Entertain your guests while encouraging friendly competition and socialisation. Even kids (from age 11) can enjoy a few safe rounds of target practice (with adult supervision, of course)!

Let’s explore a few of the most popular events you can host for mAXE-imum fun.

Be the life of the (axe throwing) birthday party

Now is the time to test your aim if you’ve never attended an axe throwing birthday party. Anyone can play, as the sport doesn’t need intense training to enjoy. A couple of practice rounds will be enough for anyone to get the hang of it.

There are several fun ways to approach your birthday party:

  • Split up into teams and help each other get more points than the others.
  • Face off against each other in elimination rounds until the last one is standing.
  • Create a theme and ask the guests to arrive dressed up. The best costume wins an extra round for a shot at bonus points!
  • Set up more targets for an axe throwing birthday party extravaganza. Some fun game ideas include pop the balloons, smash the piñata, and pin the axe on the donkey.

Ready for the party of a lifetime?

Take your position and step backwards with your dominant leg. Lift the axe behind your head with both hands. Pull a deep breath in, focus on your target, and throw your weapon.

Let the games begin!

A bachelor and bachelorette party like no other

An axe throwing bachelor party or bachelorette celebration is thrilling for all genders. It provides a fun, wholesome alternative to going out and getting hammered. 

Axe throwing is great for building friendships and encouraging healthy competition. You can still enjoy a few drinks between rounds if you want!

For the groom: What’s more empowering than wielding an axe? Compete against each other and prove your alpha prowess in a game of strength and precision.

Forget roses, rings, and dresses. An axe throwing bachelorette party is an amazing bonding experience for the bride and her brigade

Below are three axe-citing game ideas for the ultimate hen and stag parties:

  • Blackjack 21: Similar to the classic game, this version involves a numbered board instead of cards. Each person gets a few rounds to get as many points as possible. The one who scores 21, or the closest to it, wins.
  • Bull’s Eye: This axe throwing bachelor party game is much like darts. You aim at a larger version of a dartboard with a red circle in the middle. Instead of scoring, the goal is to hit as many bull’s eyes as possible within a specific number of rounds.
  • Jack/Jill of All Trades: This game of skill involves five different styles of axe throwing. The players must complete each one successfully to win.

    The varying methods include single-handed left, single-handed right, two-handed, underhand left, and underhand right. You can make the game more competitive by awarding points for each successful attempt.

An axe throwing bachelorette party or bachelor bash is fantastic for everyone involved. Our trained professionals will help everyone learn the techniques, keeping the competition safe and fun.

Ditch the office; throw axes

Are you looking for an enjoyable, all-inclusive way to boost morale and teamwork in the office? An axe throwing party may be what everyone needs to enhance productivity and form stronger alliances between employees.

There’s nothing better than some friendly competition to improve team building. Everyone splits into groups and encourages teammates to score the most points.

Cut-throat is our go-to game for the ultimate office team exercise. It’s also among our favourite picks for an axe throwing bachelor party.

Each person gets three assigned numbers on the target. Your group aims to strike the other team players’ marks while trying to avoid your own. The player on the opposite team gets eliminated if you hit all their spots. 

Eventually, there’ll only be two players battling it out with each other. The last one standing wins the game!
