The game is based on elimination, so the loosing team is out of competition. However, a unique rule states that every goal scored allows the team to eliminate a player from the opposite team. The team captain should take this decision within 5 seconds of scoring, by pointing to the selected player with his finger. Each match consists of two 5-minute halves, and lasts until one team is completely eliminated, therefore it is challenging yet exciting for the teams to undergo the next round of games with one or more missing member
