     In Las Cruces, New Mexico, huachas (a Spanish name for washers) uses washers with 2 1⁄2-in outside diameter and 1-in inside diameter. Washers are thrown into a 3- or 4-in hole, with the two holes placed 25 or 30 ft apart. A 5 ft × 3 ft area around the cup, called the "pit", may be framed with wood or tape and filled with soil. The player whose washer lands closest to the hole earns one point, and landing the washer in the hole will garner four points. A "hanger" is a washer teetering on the edge of the hole, and can earn a player extra points. The first player to reach 21 points is the winner.
