Me too, anymore

It's really just glorified shuffleboard, but with a heavier influence of skill, strategy, and physics involved. Granite for stones are quarried from only 2 places in the world.

As the stone is delivered, the thrower turns (spins) the stone slightly, a curved path is induced, enabling throwers to more strategically place the stone (in behind guard stones etc.)

Chess on ice.

As for the rest:
