It is played in groups of three people. The app is programed so that the player plays for one of the groups which consist of three players.
There are 3 ways to score "mecha". When a player explodes on the gunpowder filled triangles that rest around the metal cylinder gives the player 5 points and, "Bocin" is when the player throws the metallic disc in the middle of the metallic cylinder which give you 10 points, and the last is "moona". This is when the metal disc goes into the "bocin" and a "mecha" explodes, worth 15 points. Each scenario is played to 50 points.
