Skultimate Roller Maze Season Kicks Off with Official Rule Announcement
With the new SKRM season about to unravel, editors at the MHGG have decided to publish an official rule breakdown for those monsters who may be unfamiliar with the dare-devilsh revival sport that is creating quite the craze at monster institutions everywhere. Skultimate Roller Maze (or SKRM for short) is a centuries old activity highlighting the uhhhl-timate in labyrinth-monster creativity. The classic rules state that the winning team is the first to get all three of its members into the center of the ever evolving labyrinth, though modern rules dictate that only one player need cross to determine a win. Scholastic competition follows modern rules to shorten matches that would, in past occasions last over thirteen hours!
In simplest of terms, the rules are as follows:
1. Teams consist of six players- three active and three on reserve.
2. Teams begin the race from opposite sides of the labyrinth.
3. Monsters must use their skates to navigate the labyrinth and all its obstacles during the race. Removal of skates by team members at any time during the race will result in an automatic forfeit.
4. No phasing through, burrowing under, flying, climbing, or jumping over labyrinth walls.
5. Only one team monsters must reach the center of the labyrinth to win a contest. They do not have to all reach the center at the same time.
6. Injured team monsters may be replaced, but the replacement monster must start at the beginning of the labyrinth.
7. Labyrinth obstacles are randomly generated by the maze itself, after each team has announced their three-monster line up. Obstacles may be physical or mental in nature.
8. Each team will be required to overcome the same sets of obstacles.
9. Monsters who have the ability to transform may do so as long as the transformation does not result in non-skating locomotion.
10. Referees will be strategically placed throughout the labyrinth as well as in the center to assure teams follow the rules.
With the spirited revival of this sport sweeping the monster nation, you are sure to catch SKRM fever the first time you see it played. With Frankie, Abbey, Ghoulia, Lagoona, Operetta, Draculaura and Clawdeen on the roster this season, Monster High (which is currently ranked number one in the underworld) is bound to take home top prize.
