Ekstremsportveko is testing a new concept, and this is a low-threshold competition in the amateur class. Join the Open VossaTAG Athlete CUP to gain extra points in The Honorable Citizen of Voss.
Have you ever played Tag, Sisten or Tikken? A game with many names, and in VossaTAG the principle is the same - escape your opponent to win points!
Gameplay for Open VossaTAG Athlete CUP
VossaTAG is played on a 12x12 meter course with physical obstacles that challenge speed, strength, and flexibility.
VossaTAG Athlete CUP is played 1:1.
1 round lasts for 20 seconds with one tagger and one defender. A full match lasts 4x 20 seconds.
Qualification and finales
Qualification is as follows: Each player meets a random opponent in two lightning rounds - where each player is allowed to be tagger. The goal is to tag the opponent in the shortest possible time. Tag is valid anywhere on the body in the qualifying rounds. Time spent ranks each player into the quarterfinals: the lowest ranked from the qualification meets the highest ranked etc. The winner from each match advances to the semifinals and finals.
One can only gain points as a defender.
Each player gets two rounds as a tagger, and two rounds as a defender. Which means one can only get two points in one match.
Tagger attacks defender, and the round is won (not the point) by touching the opponent anywhere on the upper body.
If the defender escapes the tagger throughout the round, it wins the point. If the defender is tagged below waist it wins the point.
In the event of a tie, there will be an extra round, and in the case of rocks, scissors, paper, one gets to choose between being tagger or defender - both roles will give the winning point.
