How to Play

Each player “flicks” a figure on a weighted base at the ball. In order to get and maintain possession contact must be made with the ball.

Basic rules:

  • You can only make a play for the ball when you have possession
  • Possession is established by contact with the ball by one of your team’s players.
  • Possession is maintained by making contact with each “flick”
  • Possession is lost if the ball goes out of bounds, hits the opposing team’s player or a foul is committed.
  • You are not allowed to touch the ball if it is not your possession – the opposing team may yell “back” in this situation and your player will be returned to its original spot.
  • You are not allowed to hit the other team’s players – the opposing team may yell “back” in this situation and your player will be returned to its original spot.
  • If a ball is intentionally hit when not in your possession or if another player is intentional taken out (to prevent a goal, for example) a free kick will be awarded.  If inside the goal box, a penalty kick will be awarded.
  • Alternate turns; however if you have possession, you do not have to wait for the defensive player to make his flick.
  • The same player can touch the ball 3 times in a row maximum.
  • On a throw-in, corner kick or free kick, each team gets 1 positional flick, with the offensive team flicking first.
  • On a goal kick, each team will be allowed to reset his whole team by hand, with the offensive team going first.
  • You cannot shoot on goal until you the ball is in the shooting zone – if this happens and the ball goes in the goal, it will be a goal kick.
  • You cannot be off-sides until you are in the shooting zone.
