About

The 1 on 1, 2 on 2, or even 3 on 3 flying disc game, which combines disc golf with a form of horseshoes. With light up capabilities Glowski keeps the fun going all day and all night! View more on our website.

Since the 1800s horseshoes was the outdoor lawn game of choice, however, as the years have passed there have become newer and more unique outdoor games that have developed. One problem which has stayed persistent has been that after the sun sets, the fun comes to an end. Glowski aims to fix this issue! 

With four fun colors to choose from, the fun never stops with our Glowski LED bottle lights. These lights stick firmly to our Glowski bottles and have both strobe and standard light functions.  Try all of our colors; from blue to green to red to white. (Upon final production bottles will have Glowski logo printed on the side) 

Our durable red and blue colored LED discs are the perfect size and weight for outdoor play. When the sun goes down the fun is just getting started with our light up flying discs. 

Get your own Glowski Sticker swag to brighten up any surface and show your support for our project! 

Get your very own LED Glowski bottle koozie to keep the fun going and the drinks cold! 

Don't miss out on your opportunity to get one of our brand new, stylish Glowski shirts.  Sizes include Small, Medium, Large and XL.  We will reach out after your pledge to get your shirt size. 

• Game play can be played with teams of 1 on 1, 2 on 2, 3 on 3, etc.  

• Teammates will stand on the same side behind their designated pole, which will be placed 30 feet or 10 steps apart. Place one bottle on top of each pole. In order to determine which team starts, flip the flying disc in the air calling out heads (flat side with Glowski logo) or tails (open side without logo).

Glowski is often played as a one-handed game, so we recommend holding a beverage of your choice in one of your hands during game play to make the game a bit more exciting.

• The teams alternate throwing the disc at the opposing teams bottle or pole in order to score points.     

• The first team to reach 21 points wins, but you must win by two points.  

• The objective is to knock the bottle off the pole to score points, however the non-throwing team can catch the bottle and/or disc before hitting the ground to prevent those points from being scored.

• The disc hitting the ground is worth 1 point, but if the disc is caught in any way that point is cancelled out.

 • If the bottle hits the ground that is worth 2 points, but those points can be cancelled out if the bottle is caught before it hits the ground. 

• If both the disc and bottle hit the ground it is worth 3 points for the throwing team, but if both are caught those points don't count. 

 • Keep in mind that the throwing team will not receive a point for a dropped disc if the disc is uncatchable and is thrown too high, too low, or more than 1 step away from the catching team.    

• In addition, if a disc is not given the opportunity to hit the bottle or pole and is caught in front of the pole, the throwing team is automatically awarded 3 points.  

• Finally, a team with 20 points cannot win off a dropped disc alone. They must have hit the pole or bottle during their throw in order to win.

We are two good friends and previous roommates who met back in dental school in 2011. We, like many of you, enjoy the outdoors and the excitement of friendly competition. However, we noticed a common trend where it was difficult to experience both in the evening time without extremely good outdoor lighting. I mean come on, it’s the 21st century and we believe that the sun shouldn’t be the limit to your outdoor fun. This is why we chose to bring you Glowski. 

Founders, Carson and Grant, started playing Glowski together back in 2011 as dental school roommates in Richmond, VA. However, the game’s origination began even before that.   

Grant began playing this game in college with the use of empty beer bottles and old ski poles. During the summers he would take those ski poles to the beaches of Delaware to play with friends out on the sand. However, each evening as the sun would set and the visibility got worse it would become impossible to keep playing.  

From that point on, Grant worked for years trying to perfect the design in order to make a game that could be played both day and night. Through multiple prototypes, numerous shattered bottles, and a lot of frustration, Grant teamed up with Carson to collaborate on making the best design possible. We were finally able to make bottles and discs that actually “glowed” and by combining that with the “ski” poles used in our first prototypes, the name “Glowski” was born.  

Since those days out on the Delaware beaches it has been exciting to see the many transitions which have taken place to get Glowski to where it is today. We hope you enjoy playing this game as much as we have enjoyed creating it.
