Skins - Game

 

Skins are a form of sport in which the winner is awarded a prize of which the value increases as the game progresses.
 
Nobody quite knows where the term ‘skins-game’ originated from, although the current consensus is in favour of Scotland. Classic examples of games in which the ‘skins’ system is used are golf, bowls, and curling. Curling is a popular skins game in which players slide stones on a sheet of ice towards a target area. A skins game ideally has no more than four players at any given time, although some amateur sportsmen play with many more players using their own money as part of the prize.
 
Skin games on a professional level are serious and popular enough to attract big sponsors with huge spectator interest. It is little wonder then that professional sportsmen are drawn to skin games. Golf is probably the most widely viewed skin game. Examples of skin games are the much publicised Merill Lynch skin game and the Thanks-giving skin games. Skin games are flexible enough to use many different prize winning systems. In golf, each hole may be given a value, and the player which manages to get there first, stores that particular prize. This system gives each player an opportunity to win a prize instead of the ‘winner-take-all’ approach.
 
Things get really interesting when two players have the same score in the skins game, and the prizes are doubled.
