This game was created by Derek Borden and Scott Stephenson. It orginated in Leduc, Alberta back in the summer of 2007. A thrilling sport in which two players face off in a head to head battle. Players stand about 8 feet away from a cup and to shoot nuts into the cup. At the start of the game both players each get one shot (or roll) to see who can get their nut closer. Who ever has the closer nut gets to chose if they want to shot first or second. Shooting second is called "the hammer". If a game has already ready been played then the winner gets choice. The first shooter takes 4 shots. If any nuts roll behind the shooting line or to far in any direction they become unusable for the rest of the match. Goals are scored when nuts get shot into the cup and stay in. After all the players shots are taken he now has to retreive his nuts. Any other nuts found he can use for the duration of the game. The second shooter takes his turn and when hes done its the end of the first quarter. The game is made up of 4 quarters. Winner is whe player with the most goals. If both players are tied, then the game goes into a overtime shootout. Players will now shoot nut for nut. Once someone scores the other player gets one shot to anwser back reguardless of who shot first. If the other shooter does score the overtime continues as it was. If the player does not answer back then the goal scorer in the winner. The loser has to pick up the nuts.
Derek is last years Nut Cup champion. Barry is a Nut Cup veteran. Scott is a dirty Nut Cup player.
