The scoreboard used at most curling clubs across the USA and Canada can be a bit confusing to people just learning about the game.

When reading the scoreboard, remember to read it like a number line – or perhaps a thermometer – from left to right. The line of numbers in the center depicts the points scored. The RED team is shown on the top and the YELLOW team on the bottom. The numbered tags (above and below) indicate the end in which the team scored.

In the first example above in the 1st end we see Red scores 1. They place the number 1 (end) above the score of 1.

In the 2nd example Yellow scores 2 points. They place the number 2 (end) below the score of 2.

In the third example Yellow scores 4 points. They place the number 3 (end) below the total score of 6.

In the fourth example, Yellow scores another 1 point. The number 4 is hung below the total score of 7.

In the fifth end (not shown) the Red team scores 3. The number 5 is hung above the total score of 4.

Therefore, after 5 ends of play the score is Red 4 and Yellow 7.
