The game continues alternating turns until they reach an exact score of 21, unless there is an Instant Win scored. The team who threw second will get the last throw of the game because they have the "redemption" shot.
Dinger, 1 point: Deflector redirects the thrown disk and hits any side of the can.
Deuce, 2 points: Thrower hits the side of the can and it's unassisted by partner.
Bucket, 3 points: Deflector redirects the thrown disk and it lands inside the can.
Instant Win, Game Over: Thrower lands the disk inside the can, unassisted by their partner. The disk can enter through the slot opening on the side and it can also enter through the top of the can. When an Instant Win occurs, the throwing team is the winner and the opposing team does not have the "redemption" option.
