Rules (begginers and advanced):
HPlayers must complete all the tricks, in order, as fast as possible. If you miss a trick, keep trying until you get it before moving on to the next trick.
If in doubt, tricks must be performed as in the video below. Transitions between tricks may be done in any way, as long as they do not prevent the tricks being started and completed properly.
Players compete in pairs, in a knockout system. A random trick is drawn, and the players attempt it once each. If one player succeeds and the other fails, the successful player gets 1 point. If, after 3 attempts each, no player has scored a point, a new trick is drawn. The first player to 2 points proceeds to the next round.
In the final, the first to 5 points will be the winner.
For the early rounds, tricks are randomly selected from #1-10 on the list. For the Quarter Finals, from 6-15, for the Semi-Finals, from 11-20, and for the final, from 16-25.
