The letter is Q
Q is for Quoits
Here is a fun video of a game of Quoits at a local pub.
Which came first, the chicken or the egg, Horseshoes or Quoits???
It seems some people are Quibbling about this, but no matter which the game of Quoits appears to have had its origin in ancient Greece where poorer citizens, who could not afford a discus, made their own by bending horseshoes into a circle. They were used in their open form only after it became customary to practice pitching at a spike embedded in the ground.
In England Quoits became so popular that Edward 111 and Eichard 11 prohibited the game in order to encourage archery. However, it became quite a well organized sport by the 15th century probably because of the numerous attempts to eradicate it from the pubs and taverns of England.
The pub variety of Quoits has many offshoots, - games such as ringtoss or hoopla becoming popular as parlour games, and deck quoits which became popular as a means of entertaining blase passengers on long cruises.
