I think the game of horseshoes was invented by a blacksmith who was unshoeing (…deshoeing…reshoeing..???) a horse, and he happened to toss the old shoe aside and it just so happened to land around a post.

His, then apprentice, seeing an undefined “ringer,” bet his boss two schillings that he couldn’t do it again.

And thus the game of hor shoes was born.

After note… I think team games were invented because most of the blacksmith in those days were probably fat lazy drunks who didn’t want to walk further than 10 feet.
