The TRINISKET BUCKET LEAGUE was founded by Reginald Black. "TRI" stands for 3 tennis balls. "NIS" stands for the last 3 letters of the word tenNIS. The "KET" stands for the last three letters of the word bucKET. Thus you have "TRINISKET." This game was created and designed by me in my garage. I have been in existence for 6 months. The "DON'T COME IN LAST" tournament has become my signature game.
This is my third and newest version. This version has added another dimension to the game. It has made the game much more exciting. In the second version there was only one position to shoot from right in front of the goal. Now the "Court Position Board" forces players to shoot from different positions which makes the game that much more difficult. The scoreboard is now out of the shooting path of the players which allows the game to flow at a constant pace. Players don't have to wait for the score to be posted before they can shoot again. The "DON'T COME IN LAST" tournament from the second version is bigger and better than ever. Players cringe on every shot so they won't come in last and loose one of their "X's." The player with at least one or more "X's" left is crowned the winner.
The second version allowed us to go from 2 player competition to 4 players. Which has lead to the creation of the "DON'T COME IN LAST" tournanment. This format brings out the best in all players. It is as simple as it sounds. Just don't come in last place. Or don't have the fewest points after the end of 9 innings. A tie between the two lowest players will force a three inning sudden death. The first round players that don't come in last will be rewared with one win. First round players that have ten wins or more will make it to the second round. If you make it to the second round then you get 2 "X's." The first person to loose both of his or hers "X's" is eliminated from the tournament. The remaining three players become third round winners and will be rewared with 3 "X's." Third round players can only play third round winners. Fourth round winners is rewarded with 4 "X's." Fourth round players can only play fourth round winners, and so fourth. The 5th round winners will be rewared with 5 "X's until there is only four players left. Once there is four players then the Champiohship round will start. Champiohship players will be rewared with 6 "X's" until one player is left. That person will be crowned champion.
This is our first version straight out of the garage. As you can see it was designed for two player competition. Very exciting but only one winner and one looser. If a game ends in a tie then 3 extra innings will be played to determine the winner. The tournaments was the best 3 out of 5. The first player to win 3 games was crowned the winner and would move to the next round. Eventually only two players was left. The first player to win 3 games was crowned the champion.
