Default Re: Curling at Winter Olympics

Basically it's Canadian shuffle board. Try to leave your stones on the target and knock the opponents off. The screaming is usually the one who slid the stone giving direction to the two sweepers to use the brooms to make the stone "curl" to a particular point on the scoring area. They have great control over the stone. They can also put snow infront of or sweep it away to either slow down or speed up the stone.
That is a primer on curling from this American who lives in the shuffleboard capitol of the world.
