How the Game of S.K.A.T.E. works: SKATE, also known as the Game of Skate, is a skateboarding game using rules based upon the game H.O.R.S.E. played by basketball players. One player sets a trick by doing a particular skateboarding trick of their choice. If the trick is not landed, or the board did not fully rotate another player attempts to set a trick. Once a trick has been set (landed exactly), if the offensive player lands a trick in a line the other player cannot do another trick within the line, the other player(s) must respond by doing the same trick in their first try. If they make it the game continues; If every one gets the trick the player who set it gets a point if they miss it, they get a letter, starting with S, and so on, until they have missed five tricks, spelling SKATE, 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 two attempts at that trick. If the player lands the trick they have gained the lead and set the trick.
