    Okay so here's my attempt to get this going:

    Below I have posted a trick to get a larger pool of players involved. Follow the rules to participate. Everyone is welcome to play!
    1. Load a video of you doing the trick.
    2. Include a description of the trick/line
    3. Include description of your setup
    4. **UPDATE** if posting on instagram, tag @downspikeoffical
    36hours (Monday at 1200 PDT) to post a clip to enroll on through to the next round. After all the clips are loaded. I will choose a player "at random" to put up the next clip. Expect a new challenge every Thursday or Friday. I am open to suggestions. I just want to get this going sooner than later. Expect the unexpected!

    **All mods are welcomed to and encouraged to participate so we can knock out any kinks on this first go**

    well we need to set rules for the last letter...

    proves
    -within a day, the player that has been called should do it. call outs should only happen on their post. we don't want to flood that much on this thread with regards to upcoming tricks
    -since we don't know how many players get a last letter (probably after 2 week ), call outs can last atleast 3 days.
    -players should answer all the call outs as much as possible. since most of you posted on ig, better tag those people that called you out, plus DS ig so that we could get on track.
    -if the player can't prove, they either say it here in the thread the trick & follow it "CAN'T PROVE" or atleast post the video of you trying to lace the trick that they want you to prove.

    last shot/last try
    -last tries should be atleast be done within 3 days after the week the challenge has been given.
    -well, either tag the player who made the trick or DS. dictate the trick in the description.

    well that's what i got so far

    So maybe we will start with begginer and intermediate tricks ok? I mean if someone is shpwing the trick, don't record : juggle tap tap juggle late kenflip jug jug... In my opinion we should start with tricks that are maybe not easy, but possible for big amount of people so more people would be playing game of KEN with us.

    Sorry the video is awful. I wasn't aware IG would cut the top 3rd off. It's 95F out, and I am not about to go back and record it again.
    Super pumped for this!

    This game is open to all Downspike members.

    Players are open to upload trick/line that tickles their fancy. We will have a new member chosen "at random" for every round to upload the challenge of the week.

    "AT RANDOM" will be defined as pulling names from a box. Your name cannot get chosen again until all previous names have been chosen. If you have collected all letters K-E-N before being chosen, you cannnot have your name pulled from the box to upload a challenge.

    Hashtags are not necessary at this time. All videos will be included into this thread.

    I think you are mixing too much of the real life game of KEN with a much more simple and friendly virtual version.

    Participants should try their hardest to get a clear shot on camera. We will all get better at this as the game progresses.

    If you have letters K-E and you are on the third challenge and cannot make the upload in time, you will simply receive the letter. You will have earned letters K-E-N and you game is over.

    If something comes up in the moment that needs discussing, we can discuss it when it occurs. Otherwise, let's just play!

    If someone gets knocked out are they allowed to continue playing/posting the set tricks here for fun, providing they note that they are out of the game?

    i think they should have to post first trick to be in the game, but on next videos if someone doesnt post a clip he is just getting one letter. But in my opinion first video is the thing that player have to post to be in the game.

    Upload a video! You have until Thursday 1700hr PDT (about 76 hours). Everyone else has until Monday 1200hr PDT to copy in clear view and upload the challenge. All times are somewhat flexible, but I'm pretty good at keeping time.

    Yes! To keep this game feeling as close to "live and in-person" as possible. Which is why the "batter" is given ~40 hours to post a challenge. Challengers are given a bit more time (~44 hours) to learn the trick/line.
