GOSK8 is not a virtual game. It is a new tool to physically play the Game of S.K.A.T.E. The app randomly selects tricks based on what you are skating (flatground, manual, transition, ledge) and your level (Basic, Medium, Advanced).
GOSK8 can be played in a three different ways:
2 Players Same Trick
Player A spins the trick wheel. The trick that appears, Player A needs to do. If Player A misses the trick, he then gets the first letter "G" and then Player B is free to spin the trick wheel. However, if Player A makes the trick, Player B then needs to land the same trick. If Player B lands the selected trick, Player A spins the trick wheel again. If Player B misses the selected trick he then receives the first letter "G". Each player continues to spin the trick wheel until they miss a trick. This way is played exactly like H.O.R.S.E. in basketball.
2 Players Different Tricks
Player A spins the trick wheel. Regardless if player A makes or misses the trick. Player B spins the trick wheel for a new trick. This continues until Either Player A or B misses a total of 5 tricks and receives G.O.S.K.8.
This is for one player. You will be Player A and the Phone will serve as Player B. Player A spins the trick wheel. If you miss the trick you receive the first letter "G". If you make the trick the phone Player B receives the first letter "G". This continues until either Player A or B receives a total of five letters G.O.S.K.8.
On every level you will see "Free Trick" on the trick wheel. When this appears, you are free to try any trick you wish.
Although by the very nature of skateboarding there is an infinite amount of variations of tricks and combos on numerous obstacles, GOSK8 was built with the intention of serving the skate community as an addition to the progression and culture.
