A game of Floor Curling requires eight stones, four of each colour.

2CAN FLOOR CURLING BE PLAYED ON CARPET?
Floor Curling should be played on a smooth, flat surface such as a hardwood floor, gym surface, or similar. Floor Curling stones will not roll as well on carpet and fibers will get trapped in the bearings.
3CAN FLOOR CURLING BE PLAYED OUTDOORS?
Floor Curling can be played on any smooth, flat surface either indoors or outdoors. However, Floor Curling stones should not get wet as the bearings will rust. A clean floor surface is recommended to avoid dirt and debris getting stuck in the ball bearings. Always store your Floor Curling stones in a cool, dry area.
4HOW CAN I CLEAN MY FLOOR CURLING BEARINGS?
Roll the bearings on a microfiber towel to loosen any debris. (Using a microfiber towel prevents fabric fibers from getting stuck in the bearings.) Do not use any lubricants or liquids as this will damage and rust the bearings long term.
5CAN I REPLACE THE BEARINGS ON MY FLOOR CURLING STONES?
