Mini is the most exciting and revolutionary change to disc sports since Columbia HS witnessed the invention of Ultimate over thirty years ago. Invented and trademarked by Brooklyn’s own Brion Winston and David Hollander, the sport has spread as far as Seattle, Japan, England, Australia, and Finland. An intensity that rises to a feverish pitch from the first pull and lasts to the last “D-to-win” or glorious goal-to-win, Mini is the modern urban answer to small field spaces and your wicked Ultimate jones. (It also cures constipation, reverses baldness, and has aphrodisiac properties on those who watch it.)

The Basics

  • Field: 20 x 30 x 6 (20 yards wide, 30 yards long, endzones are 6 yards deep)
  • 3 on 3
  • Make it take it
  • Stall count starts at 6/or stall count goes to 5
  • Several ways to score the game:
  • 1) +1 for a goal, -1 for a turnover – first to get +3 wins, or the first to get to -2 loses
  • 2) Games to 1; win by 2; cap at 3
  • Winner stays
  • You can play with or without scoobers/hammers/etc. Sticking to just forehands and backhands forces you to work on your fundamental throws but by adding in the other throws, it allows you to see different cuts and options.

The first rule is no chumps and the second is

You’ve gotta keep the game moving quick.

A small game for big boys and chicks.

Oh, I scratch and claw like jungle hyena,
20 by 30 by 6
