Spinworkx H-O-R-S-E Tournament Rules

H-O-R-S-E has always been a favorite game/activity amongst the local players here in Singapore. What better way to have fun this September School Holidays than to have a mini Tournament of this creative and exciting game!

The Rules for the H-O-R-S-E tournament are as follows:

1) Players can take part using any Division/Style (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A) or even a combination of Divisions.

2) At the start of each round, a coin will be flipped to determine the competitor that goes first.

3) The competitor going first does a trick. If the trick was missed by the first competitor, it is now the opponents turn to do a new trick. If the trick has been hit by the first competitor, the opponent will need to do the exact same trick. If the opponent misses, he will receive a Letter 'H'. If the opponent hits the trick, no one gets any Letters and now it will be the opponents turn to try a new trick. 

4) This battle goes on until one competitor gets all the Letters making up H-O-R-S-E. The competitor who gets all 5 Letters loses.

5) Do note that for H-O-R-S-E, only Yo-Yo Tricks, and not combos are allowed. This means that in a Trick that any competitor does, there cannot be more than 3 String Hits, 2 Sommersaults or Barrel Rolls, 3 repetitions of a movement like looping, etc.

6) In the event that the 2 competitors are not able to determine whether the Trick performed is legitimate, the other competitors & person running the Tournament will make the call.

7) If after 3 tries of trying to set a trick and the competitor missed all 3 tries in a row, that player will be penalized with a Letter.

8) Before attempting a trick, players are allowed to learn the trick from their opponent but they are not allowed to try the trick. If they do attempt to 'test' the trick out, it will be considered an attempt and should they miss, they will be penalized with a Letter.

9) Do remember for H-O-R-S-E, show off and be creative!
