While we do not condone throwing tomahawks at people (or other living “targets”), we certainly condone throwing them at our wood targets at The Yard! DM us to book a time to come in and give it a try!

When Europeans arrived in America, they built on the Algonquin model by replacing the stone head with metal and began using them in battle during the American Revolutionary War. A tomahawk was easier to carry and more reliable at hitting a target than a gun!

Modern day design of a tomahawk includes a 24” shaft and a cutting edge not less than 4 inches, with a spike or hammer protruding from the butt of the blade. #TheYardAlbany #TheYard #tomahawk #hatchethouse #axethrowing #axes #hatchets #bar #lawngames #yardgames #Albany #NewYork #downtown #CapitalRegion #CapitalDistrict ...

Did you know that the tomahawk is an invention of the Algonquin, an indigenous tribe that lived throughout what is now known as New England and Canada? Originally made from a wooden shaft with a stone at the top and secured with strips of rawhide, the tomahawk was a multipurpose tool – used to hunt, chop, cut and, on occasion, wield as a weapon. #TheYardAlbany #TheYard #tomahawk #hatchethouse #axethrowing #axes #hatchets #bar #lawngames #yardgames #Albany #NewYork #downtown #CapitalRegion #CapitalDistrict ...

As President Trump searches for a new location for the G7 Summit 2020, we here at The Yard think we have the perfect venue. What better way to build international teamwork, than with some old fashion play on our lawn! And how about some dispute resolution with a throwdown in our axe cages?

Mölkky can get feisty! Rock, Paper, Scissors – the preferred form of dispute resolution in any Yard – decides who goes first in Mölkky and the teams alternate turns until one team has exactly 50 points. Oh yeah, and there are penalties - if a team goes over 50 points in any given round, their score is reset back down to 25. Like we said, feisty! ✊🗒✂️ #TheYardAlbany #Mölkky #lawngames #sunshineallthetime #axethrowing #hatchethouse ...
