What Is Hoop Grids?

Hoop Grids is a captivating concept that blends basketball and puzzles in a grid-based game. Your job is to identify a basketball player who meets the criteria in the grid’s rows and columns.

The game shows a grid with columns like points, assists, or rebounds per match. Each row sets specific standards for these criteria. You must rate basketball players based on how closely they match these criteria in rows and columns.

But there's a twist – you'll want to reduce your player's "rarity score" by selecting players who aren't commonly chosen in other grids. The rarer the player, the better the result.

    Get to know different basketball players, even the less popular ones in other grids. Try to throw out the rule book when picking players to lower the rarity score and boost your chances of winning..
