    Object of the game: Get the highest amount of points you can

    How to play:

    - When someone sets a trick literally anyone on the cafe can jump in and match it (you must use the handsign shown below 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
    - 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. As long as you are the first to match the newest trick, you can upload your set, regardless of the amount of tricks you didn't do.
    - Also, to make things easier, type the number of points you have in the same post as your match or set
    upadate: now that we have threads for different types of tricks, when you post a video in a particular thread, post how many points you have in that particular thread.
    Don't carry the points over in other threads

    - We will play by Regular Game of Skate Rules
    - Take a look at the Arcade Game Of Skate - Tricks Thread to get get a good idea of what to do

    REMEMBER TO USE THE HANDSIGN OR YOUR SET/MATCH WILL NOT COUNT

    Handsign:

    Tony Hawk's Underground 1 style

    Is the handsign the same for all set/matches?

    This is awesome dude. Who would have ever thought? A game of skate without the commitment AND new tricks get uploaded on a daily basis = Perfect.

    ^That's what I like about this. Let's say you couldn't film for 2 weeks and had many tricks to film, you could upload a whole montage!

    I tried filming a match+set, but my frontside flips are ugly so I'm going to try to get a clean one on film. I do it like Aaron Kyro, I do a kickflip 90 and then pivot on the nose the rest of the way.

    Or if you really want to set a trick, just forget all the tricks and just get the newest one =]

    Until someone does a trick that nobody else can do, then it's game over lol

    And I'm actually super stoked on how my fs flip came out, even though it only took 10 minutes, I hope I can land another one like that again, haha

    I have a match and set but I don't want to be that guy who matches back and forth so I'm keeping the footy. It's sketchy anyways.

    Maybe we could branch this out into other categories like tranny arcade, ledge arcade and mani arcade?

    I feel this could be a good motivation for people to learn new tricks and progress further from flat.

    I'm totally down for that

    I wonder if we can stick them all in one thread without getting too hectic, haha

    I think it should be separate threads. It would clutter the thread too much if it was one gigantic thread.

    Yeah I was thinking that but tranny, ledge and manny - that's 6 threads right there. If we add rail and mini that's 10 threads

    Unless we keep the discussion here and just make extra threads for videos, that could work

    One discussion thread would work.
