Skillet toss is a physical game that involves throwing a steel skillet for distance. Each participant is allowed two attempts to toss the skillet and their best score is recorded; the participant who throws the skillet the furthest distance wins the competition. The throw must land within the boundaries of the playing field or points may be deducted. Skillets typically weigh approximately 3.5 lbs. and the throwing technique resembles that of a flying disc toss. Competitions are often divided by age and gender, and there are both solo and group events.
