### How to calculate deck shuffleboard points?

Deck Shuffleboard points are calculated after all the pucks are shot. Points only count if the entire puck is inside of one of the numbered scoring areas. If a player knocks another player's puck out of the scoring area, that puck is no longer scored. If a puck is touching the side of a numbered section, it is not scored.
