    Game of Blade 2018

    Excel file for order of setting tricks and the standings!

    https://1drv.ms/x/s!AqxQQ2mdfBhWcm3hCE3YAVjkgGI





    The rules/guidelines:


    Clean slate for setting tricks, but try to avoid setting repeats from past rounds if you can.

    Each Monday, the next user sets their trick. May 21st is Vladimir, May 28th is midtownanddown, etc

    Set your trick Monday, everyone has until Friday the next week to post their clip. If you can't get the trick in by midnight the following Friday (a week and a half), you get a letter. With B.L.A.D.E. you're out.

    When you set a trick, you are the judge if any questionable submissions to match your trick don't count. Inform people ASAP so they have a chance to submit a better clip! If the clip submitted by the person setting the trick sucks by general consensus, you may get a letter setting your own trick and failing to do it properly.

    Pay attention to when you're due to set! If you're late to set (by midnight Monday your week), I'll set a random trick by Tuesday midnight, and your turn gets skipped.

    People late to join can try to catch up on as many tricks as they can the first time they submit a clip. Don't join late on purpose to abuse this...

    If you call a switch trick, those setting and those matching need to prove it's switch eg post a clip doing it natural too. Complicated switchups involving a switch trick are discouraged as doing the switchup natural may involve some of the elements being switch...

    Open to "within reason" spot specific tricks eg 540 a stair set at least X amount of stairs, fishbrain a quarter pipe... don't make it too specific or people will bitch and I reserve the right to veto. If you want a spot specific set, it's better to ask early.

    Attempt to set tricks within the recognizable canon of street skating. Cartwheel is out, for example. I was talking about setting a butt slide last round, which is probably be a bit too far outside of the norm. Better to ask early if in doubt.

    There are a lot of participants, so this could go on for a long while... tricks will get harder as the game goes on (probably towards the end of the list first round?)





    First set is Vladimir for Monday May 21st, due by Friday June 1st!

      Nicely setup. Thanks for that. Hate this trick, let's see how it goes on the old bones.

        Been doing a lot of front savs recently, so this came quite easily for a change!

            So we have to do this by Friday week, right? Not this Friday? And when is the next set? Has somebody missed one?

            Swear down, I'm not actually this thick, I'm just fucking knackered.

              Hope that counts. I fucked up on the ledge and ended up falling backwards onto my head after doing a couple of ok ones. So this was a few hours later on the dinky quarter.

                        Just an idea...anybody up for having two people submit tricks each week? It could move things along a bit faster

                          I would be open to this idea. Would want to hear a few aye/nay opinions, but I like it. Once the hard tricks start coming, could be rough...

                            I dig, 2 weeks is a little excessive for one trick especially if we’re aiming for simpler stuff for a while. Down with the consensus though
