Learn how to skateboard with this Howcast video series for the beginner skateboarder.
You Will Need
- A skateboard
- A helmet and protective pads
- A pair of skateboard or athletic shoes
- One pair of six-sided dice
- At least two skateboarders
Choose your players. There is no limit to how many skateboarders can participate in Skate, but at least two are necessary to play the game.
Establish an order
Establish the order in which the skaters will compete. Each player rolls the pair of dice and the person who rolls the highest number goes first, the next highest number goes second and so on. In case of a tie, players who roll the same number roll again until they break the tie.
Start the game
The first player attempts their skateboard trick and the other players then evaluate the landing. If everyone agrees that the landing was good, the other skaters must successfully repeat the same trick or get a letter in the word "skate," the first letter being "S."
Move down the line
If the first player doesn't land the trick correctly, they gets an "S," and the next player in line gets to perform a trick of their choosing, and so on down the line. Once a player has landed correctly, everyone else must duplicate that trick or get a "Skate" letter: an S-K-A-T or E.
Five letters and out
Anyone who gets all five letters is eliminated from the game. The last player standing wins.
