shoe-bachi

blending; noun; clipping
If someone calls Shotgun, then someone else says Blitz, the driver can call “Shoe-bachi” and point to a spot. Everyone else has to throw their shoe at the spot and the closest person gets shotgun. The farthest person has to pick up all the shoes.
 
clipping of "hibachi" to "bachi" and compounding with "shoe". Hibachi is japanese for "firepot", so shoe-bachi refers to throwing shows into one spot/pot designated by the driver
Etymology : "shoe" - the literal object + "bachi" - shortening of "hibachi"
