Playing Tejo In Bogotá: An Explosively Good Time ankara escort çankaya escort ankara escort çankaya escort escort ankara çankaya escort escort bayan çankaya istanbul rus escort eryaman escort escort bayan ankara ankara escort kızılay escort istanbul escort ankara escort ankara rus escort escort çankaya ankara escort bayan istanbul rus Escort atasehir Escort beylikduzu Escort

Tejo is a traditional Colombian game similar to “horseshoe” but much more exhilarating as it involves hurling a heavy disc at an explosive target. It’s typically played in an old-school cantina, but now you’ll also find upscale options in Bogotá to experience the game. 

The origins of tejo date back to more than 500 years and was originally discovered in the town of Turmequé in Boyacá. The indigenous would typically drink “chicha”, a fermented corn drink, and play during their ceremonies or settle differences by throwing a disc made of real gold. 

Today, the game is enjoyed while drinking a beer instead of chicha and a steel disc instead of gold. But the principles are the same and it’s an explosively good time. 


How to play tejo

When you walk into a tejo environment you’re going to first notice the cancha, which is the designated area to play the game for your group. The cancha is sometimes free as long as you are consuming beer or there is a rental fee for a certain amount of time. This varies with each place. 

Within the cacha is the bocín, or target, and this a rectangular board covered in clay with a metal ring and triangular papers filled with gunpowder on the ring. 

Tejo La Embajada

Your goal is to throw the tejo, metal disc, onto the board, and depending on where it lands or causes an explosion, you will get a certain amount of points. 

Each player gets one turn each round to throw the tejo. There are tejos of different weights and you’ll want to choose the one you are most comfortable with. It’s best to throw the tejo underhanded. If no one hits anything, the player closest to the metal ring for that round gets 1 point. 

Mano: Closest to the ring for that round = 1 point

Mecha: Explosion of the triangular paper = 3 points

Embocinada: Lands in the center of the ring = 6 points

Moñona: Explosion + Center of the Ring = 9 points

The first person to get 27 points wins. 

To be honest, once you start having a few beers it gets difficult to keep up with the points system. This is NOT the correct way to play at all, but my friends and I will simplify the rules to 1-point for each explosion, first person to 5 is the winner.
