A horseshoes pin is used by colonists to take a break and gain recreation. It is the second cheapest and quickest to build of all the joy-related buildings, after the hoopstone ring.

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 in 100 ticks (1.67 secs). It costs 10 materials for standard volume material (such as ( Wood wood, Steel steel, Plasteel plasteel, Granite Blocks stone blocks, Uranium uranium, Jade jade) and 100 materials for low volume material, such as ( Silver silver, Gold 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.


The horseshoes pin is the second weakest of all recreation objects, tied with the Chess table and the Hoopstone ring with a recreation power of only 100%. The only recreation object worse is the Game-of-Ur board, with a meager recreation power of 80%. It is the cheapest of all recreation objects, and should be built once a basic building has been set up.
