    Default Arcade-ish Game of Skate Idea

    I've been having this idea in my head, I wonder what you guys would think of it

    What I want to try is a sort of game of skate... that would last forever, but it's user-friendly too

    This is how it would work (hopefully it won't be too confusing):

    - We would play by regular Game of Skate rules
    - The very first person would set a trick and everyone would try to match it; literally anyone on the cafe can jump in and match it (they must use a specific handsign of course)
    - If anyone matches it, they will get a point
    - If you are the first to match the trick, you must upload a set on the spot (if you don't upload a set, anyone can jump right in and upload their set)
    - A set will also count as a point
    - If no one matches a trick within a week, anyone besides the person who uploaded the first trick can upload a set
    - Here's the kicker, you can match tricks whenever you want. Like, if someone posted a 360 flip 5 months ago, and you match it, you will still get a point. So you can jump in whenever you like, you also have time to learn tricks if needed.

    So no one truly wins, but it gives incentive to match all of the tricks to get points (and bragging rights), so it's kinda like an arcade-ish game

    So yeah, good idea or bad idea?

    Seems like it could get confusing really fast, but I'd be down to try. It would be an excuse to throw some really ****ty low tricks.

    yeahhhh, it's hard for me to word it, but it makes sense for me!

    I may have to make a list of tricks that are done in my first post so it won't be too crazy

    Then it's settled!
    (some ideas may be subject to change based on how the game goes)

    I'll make a discussion thread and a video thread tomorrow

    The handsign will be Tony Hawk Underground 1 style
