Rules for Skins Curling

The Skins format differs from regular curling in that a marker is awarded for each end won, with the value for each end increasing as the game progresses. An end is won if the team with the hammer scores two or more points or the opposing team steals the end with at least one point. If neither of these occur the marker is carried over to the next end and the total value at stake grows. This results in a very exciting offensive style of play where every end is like the final end of the game with teams going all out to win.

  1. Games will be eight ends with an extra end played if the 8th end is a tie.  No additional money will be in the pot for the extra end.
  2. A coin flip will determine the hammer and stone color. The team winning the coin flip can choose either:
    • (a) to throw first or second stone in the first end, or
    • (b) the rock color they wish to use
  3. In a skins game teams play to win the end, not to accumulate a total score. To win an end:
    • The team that has the hammer must score at least two points.
    • The team without the hammer must steal at least one point.
    If neither team wins the end, the end is blanked and the marker carries over until an end is won.
  4. To keep track of the end winners, hang a score marker (reverse side of the numbers) beside your color as if you scored 1 point. You didn't actually score one point, however you did win 1 end. After the game you will be paid your winnings based on which end numbers are listed beside your color.
  5. The hammer:
    • If a team wins the end, the hammer goes to the other team in the next end.
    • If no team wins the end, the hammer changes teams for the next end.
  6. The four-rock Free Guard Zone rule applies, as do all other standard curling rules
