TX States rules for KEN battles:
The winner of the best 2 out of 3 Ken games move on to the next level.
It seems like everywhere I go people have different rules for games of KEN. Just to make them absolutely clear, so there are no discrepancies and everyone has a fair shake, these are the rules that we play by out here.
- Earthturn off decides who sets first
- Ken or tama must start hanging
- A line must end with the spike in the hole whether ken, tama, or etc. grip
- The opponent has two tries to match the trick. However, if you are on your last letter you get 3.
- You can bring up to 3 kendamas to alternate between but they must be present and near you at the start of the game
- You can use your opponent’s kendama to match their trick if you need
- You must remember your line and be able to explain it to your competitor if asked. If you can’t agree or remember you are given a do over.
- Try to keep your lines under 10 seconds. Please refrain from super long spacewalk or cup lines.
- No repeat lines verses the same opponent.
- Most importantly have fun and push yourselves
If you feel like anything can be added to this list to make for a more fair game please let me know.
