    Question How do you get the top score?

    Ok, We may have all seen 'spear toss' game before.

    I have played and played but am always just short of the top 10....

    How do the players do it? I have thrown high, low and medium. Anybody in top 10?

    Game here.

    Winds me up!

    No, it's not a fake.
    I also can't really explain, it was pure dumb luck I guess
