Contests » Axe Throwing

This game was first invented in Atmora, a very long time ago before that land became frozen still. Its origin is nebulous, but some say that it was invented by bored lumberjacks or barrel-makers. It rapidly gained popularity as a sport of dexterity, strength and accuracy, and was given specific rules and a scoring system.

When the atmoran proto-nords came to Tamriel, they brought this game with them as part of their tradition. The sport slowly faded out of nordic favor, but remained popular as a contest of skill all across Skyrim, and even made its way to the orcs.

The game is played using a colored, thick wooden axe board, where the colors of the various patterns determine the amount of points awarded if the axe embeds in that area.
