The top cross bar is worth one point, the 2nd cross bar worth two, and the 3rd bottom cross bar worth 3 points. The rear cross bar is worth 4 points. Each person gets a three slingballs and three tosses.  Players alternate toss.  You play until they land exactly on 21 points and the first one to land on 21 points wins.
