The history of "Yukigassen" as a sport across national boundaries is being created. The number of players is increasing throughout the world, including in Finland where the European Championship is held. A team consists of 9 (7 regular) players and a captain. Yukigassen requires strong willpower, quick judgment and intelligence to create clever tactics. Only your shelter and the snowballs in your hand will protect you from the snowballs thrown by your opponents. You must hide behind your shelter and wait for your chance to fight back. You can launch a surprise attack and capture your opponents' flag, or hit them with snowballs and win on points. Unknown battles and dramas are waiting for you on the snow-covered court!
