A simple ancient game played with a few horseshoes and a large pin in the ground. Players toss horseshoes from a distance and attempt to get them to land close to or around the pin. It's relaxing, and even trains hand-eye coordination.
To be usable, a horseshoe pin must have a standable spot five spaces away. It also needs line of sight to it in a straight line (many structures like chairs, lamps, and tables, do not block line of sight). Playing horseshoes increases the player's shooting skill at a meager rate. Because of its low cost and ability to slowly raise colonist shooting skill, it is often advisable to build a horseshoe pin early after starting a colony.
Up to three colonists can use a single horseshoes pin at once, taking turns throwing horseshoes at it. Colonists can throw through a held open doorway into an adjacent room while playing horseshoes. Mood bonuses for room impressiveness are determined by the thrower's location.
A horseshoe pin can made from any material (wood, metals, or stone) through the Architect menu, under the Recreation tab. It costs 10 materials for standard volume material (such as ( wood, steel, plasteel, stone blocks, uranium, jade) and 100 materials for low volume material, such as ( silver, gold). Regardless of the material used, a horseshoe pin has neutral beauty, and has no quality level. Once placed it can be uninstalled and then reinstalled in a new location.
