The objective of the game is to capture the opposing team's base by tagging the mark. The members of each team meanwhile defend their own base by capturing opposing players. Players can be captured when they cross the line that divides the playing area. Once a player is captured, he must go to the base's mark and stay there. A captured player can be freed by getting tagged by one of his teammates. The game ends when one team captures the others' base or if all of the members of one team is captured.

Determining which team goes where is decided by a round of jack-en-poy or rock-paper-scissors played by a member from each team.

If they all successfully jump without touching any of the feet of the base players, the next degree of difficulty is done next. The base players then extend their...
