If by hacking games you are talking wargaming, then it is where either multiple systems or a system is setup and teams 
are given points for taking control over it. The competition doesn't end there, I have seen games that literally lasted 
a few hours, as one team would gain control over a box, then lose it to another team. To participate in these type of 
games you really need to know your stuff, and have a team strategy. I did find it a very interesting event to watch 
though. Both teams displays were projected on larger screens that the teams could not see, but allowed spectators to 
see what they were doing, really helped in following along.
