Basherball is a sport where the plays take place off the ground in flying vehicles. There is only one ball in play at all times and only ten players on the field, five from each team. The players are allowed to perform violent checks on each other, from throwing full-on punches at other riders to sideswiping other vehicles. The ball is caught, and can be lost, through a port built into the front of the vehicles and is fired through a pivoting cannon placed behind the players' driving shoulders. The goals consist of spinning rings through which the basherball players must successfully shoot the ball. There exist three goals: one spinning ring at the end of both halves of the field, and a third at the top-dead-center of the field, a spinning double-ring, just below the scoreboard. The basherball players can only score through the middle goal if they are on the opposing team's half of the field.
