BAS Game ESSENTIALS

What is the format of Block Ape Scissors?

  • Each game or match will consist of up to 5 rounds and potentially a tiebreaker

  • The first player to win 3 rounds is the winner

  • If the rounds are drawn after the 5th round then a sudden-death tiebreaker will be played - where the first person to win a move during this phase is the winner of the game.

  • Each round will consist of 3 different phases; Jungle, Forest and River.

What are the 3 Phases?

In the Jungle phase, a player will choose their first 3 moves. After both players have chosen their 3 moves, the score from that phase is recorded. In the next phase, the Forest phase, players only choose 1 move each, and then the score is recorded. Finally, the River phase will allow a single move for each player as well. Scores are added up for all 3 phases and the person with the highest score wins.
