You can play Dendama with various games


The first player chooses the trick he wants to challenge with. If the player fails that specified the trick, it is the opponent’s turn to choose. After the second player failed, the whole process starts all over again. When the player succeeds that chose the trick and the skill level, but the opponent fails, the opponent receives a penalty. The penalty for the first failure is “K”, followed by “E” as the second penalty and “N” as the third failure. The first player that gets all three penalties loses.


Time Attack is a game that focuses on speed. In this game, up to two players can compete against each other by performing tricks successfully within 60 seconds. After the three second lasting countdown, the chosen trick and its skill level are displayed. Within 60 seconds, perform successfully as many tricks as possible (you may skip tricks that you cannot perform yet). You can complete ten tricks per match in total and the category changes according to your skill level.
