Join us on the last Sunday of every month for a Board Game Tournament hosted by our friends at Myriad Ga
With a $5 entry fee, there will be cash prizes for the top 3 finishers in every Tournament (the exact split to be determined). $1 from every entry will be added to a Champion's Pool to be awarded at the end of the Tournament year (June 2014).
Participants will be awarded points on a[masked] basis. First place finisher gets 7 pts, with the Fourth place finisher getting 2 points. All other Tournament entrants will receive 1 pt for participating. So, just by entering all 12 Tournaments, you'll have received 12 points!
At the end of the 12-game Tournament of Tournaments, the top 3 finishers will split the Champion's Pool (with the exact split to be determined).
We'll be taking a poll of Meet-Up members to determine the more popular choices for Tournaments games. Then, at each Tournament, we'll vote on which of those games we'll play at the next Tournament!
Tournaments will most often consist of 4 preliminary rounds, with the 4-to-6 highest scoring entrants getting seats in the Final round. Longer games will have only 3 rounds, and then a Final.
We'll keep a tally of everyone's scores here and at Myriad Games, so everyone can check where they stand. We can use this page to talk about what games we'd like to play next, and what we'll do with the money when we win!
Some of the games we're considering are: 7 Wonders, Ascension, Carcassonne, Dixit, Dominion, Guillotine, Race For the Galaxy, Roll Through the Ages, San Juan, Ticket to Ride and Tsuro. What other games would you like to see in our TOURNAMENT OF TOURNAMENTS?
NOTE: The Tournament does not supersede or cancel the regular Sunday Meet-up. All members are welcome to come at any time during the day and play whatever they like. There is no obligation to participate in the Tournament.
