1. Game preparations and game description

To play this game a basketball court is required in your locality. In addition, you need a basketball and chalk to mark the throw lines. This game can be played with as many players as you like. The objective of the game is to throw the ball into the basket as often as possible from a certain distance to get to the next round. The game consists of five rounds in total (Qualification, Third-Class, Second-Class, First-Class and Elite-Class). However, it is very difficult for a player to come to the last round, because the distance to the basket is increased by one meter from round to round and a minimum number of goals must be achieved in each round to get to the next round. The player having achieved the highest score at the end of the game wins (irrespective of the class a player has reached).
