How to play HoopaZ
- The players always take turns throwing. The game can be played 1:1, 2:2, 3:3 or 4:4.
- Depending on the selected game mode, either
a) without time limit,
b) with a time limit or
c) played until a game score (21 or 31 points) is reached.
- Trash talk is allowed as long as no opponent is insulted. If players or groups of players are personally insulted, the affected player or group of players can press the foul button. In this case the foul mode is activated and the denounced team or the denounced player gets the opportunity for a free throw. The free throw is always executed 1 + 1, ie if the first throw is successfully sunk, the respective player gets the opportunity to throw again. Free throws are worth one point. The free throw may be taken over the field of play.
- A regularly executed throw must be made from a position in front of the field of play. If this is ignored and the player throws over the field of play, the throw is void. The opponent receives free throws and the right to throw passes to the opposing player or team.
- If a player tries to distract the opposing player acoustically or visually during the throwing phase, the provocative team or provocative player will be charged with a foul 1 + 1. The provoked team or provoked player has the opportunity to play a 4-point game.
- Each player has the 3-point shot option for every throwing opportunity. For this purpose, the 3-point mode is activated by the team that has the right to throw. The lighting changes to red and a distance laser is projected onto the ground to visually represent the greater distance to be taken from the opposing basket. This sets the framework for a realistic 3-point game. If the throw succeeds despite the increased throwing difficulty, it is rewarded with a 3-point rating.
- In Tournament mode, a change of ends occurs at half-time. The shot clock is active. The throw must be completed before the shot clock expires, otherwise the right to throw passes to the opposing party. In the last five seconds, the shot clock uses a sound signal to indicate that the throwing time is about to end.
The shot clock is activated by the throwing player. In this way, short game interruptions are taken into account and integrated into the course of the game.
- If the game is not based on points but on time, the score after the time has elapsed counts as the result of the game.
- The scoring results from the following rules:
a) Hit after normal throw = 2 points
b) Hit after 3-point throw = 3 points
c) Hit after free throw = 1 + 1 point(s)

- from outside left
- from half center left
- from the center behind the entire pitch
- from half middle right
