Reminiscent of horseshoes — but a whole lot more interesting– the Colombian game of Tejo is easily one of the nation’s most authentic, exciting, and elaborate games. Dating back to the pre-Colombian era, Tejo has been played as a ritual and game long before the Spanish arrived in the 1700s.

This Tejo tour is the perfect introduction to Colombian Tejo and a great way to spend a fun afternoon!
Originally, natives played Tejo with discs, or tejos, of gold, and threw the tejos as closely as possible to a golden ring located at a certain distance, similar to horseshoes or quoits. Today, Tejo involves a lot less gold — its tejos and ring are made of metal. But modern Tejo has evolved into an “explosive” game complete with gun powder and usually a lot of beer!
Today’s Tejo involves placing the ring in a corner filled with clay, and attaching decorated papers filled with gunpowder! Usually, Tejo is accompanied by a full case of beer, and has become a staple at bars and family gatherings.
