History:
Game of S.K.A.T.E. is a skateboarding game using rules based upon the H.O.R.S.E. game played by basketball players. S.K.A.T.E. was first played in the 1970s by vertical skateboarders, then was adopted by street skaters in the 1980s. In 2003 Eric Koston's ├ęS Game of S.K.A.T.E. was the first tournament-style, head-to-head format event of its kind. Battle at the Berrics is a slightly updated version of the Game of S.K.A.T.E. held at the Berrics.


Rules:
Roe-sham-bo (Rock-Paper-Scissors) to see who goes first. The first player sets a trick by doing a particular skateboarding trick of their choice. If the trick is not landed, the next player attempts to set a trick. Once a trick has been set (landed), the other players must respond by doing the same trick in their first try. If they make it the game continues and if they miss it they get a letter starting with S, and so on until they have missed five tricks spelling S.K.A.T.E., and they are out or the game is over. No trick may be set more than once in the same game and a skater defending on their last letter may receive one extra attempt at that trick.


Berrics Rules:
Flat ground only, but, that does not mean everything on flat ground counts. No feet on the ground. That means no no complys, no hand plants, no bonelesses, no grabs, and no "Malto manual bullshit". No doing tricks that slide on the ground if your opponent popped their trick. Last letter gets two tries. Offensive toe drag gets one do over. Defensive toe drag has a bigger margin of error but will ultimately be decided by the referee.


Team Rules:
One team of skateboarders competing against another team of skateboarders. One person from one team will set a trick. After that team fails to perform one of their tricks, the opposing team sets a trick. Once someone on Team A has set, when it is Team A's turn again a different person must set. Instead of individual people receiving letters, the team as a whole receives a letter.
