The players have a simple goal: they form teams of at most six players and connect to the panOULU network with a WLAN capable device. The players attack and conquer access points from their rivals to gain points - whoever controls the access point at midnight, gets all the points for that day. The more users the access point has, the more point it gives to its controller. The situation can change rapidly: if team members forget to visit their access points daily, their point total will diminish.
