    For December, the Challenge will be a diverse set of games.  The games should be easy to learn and play.  There will be different games in the rounds.  Here is a chance to experience a diverse set of games.  No experience is expected before coming to the event.  Expect the format to be a bit different as we will play a different game in each round. 

    Get a taste of some great games to play with your family over the holidays!

    Games that will be included in the challenge are Love Letter, No Thanks, Red7, and 6 nimmt!, among others.

    We will be teaching or refreshing your knowledge of the rules for the games at 1pm and the first round will begin at 1:30pm.  We will have four rounds in a modified Swiss format.

    Please join us for friendly competition of this fantastic game.

    Tournament Rules:

    Game system and rounds:

    Depending on the number of participants, I will devise a fun series of games.  Sign up so that I know how many are coming!

    If we are under 10 for the event, here would be the proposed set of games and rounds:

    1: 6 Nimmt! (1:30 - 2:45)
    2: Sushi Go! (2:45 - 3:05)
    3: Love Letter (3:05 - 3:25)
    4: No Thanks! (3:25 - 3:55)
    5: No Thanks! (3:55 - 4:15)
    6: Schotten Totten/Lost Cities/Battle Line (4:15 - 4:35)
    7: Schotten Totten/Lost Cities/Battle Line (4:35 - 4:55)

    For the first round, seating will be determined via each member's ELO ranking; all new competitors will receive a provisional score of 1200.  Every round after the first round, the players will be seated and ordered according to their ranking from the previous rounds’ results.  For the first round of the tournament, we will make every effort to have the same number of players at each board from round to round.  In the event that we have to have an uneven number of players at each table, the tables with the highest ranked players will have the larger number of players.  After the first round, we may seat each table with a different number of players creating a different experience for each table. 

    Additionally, if any table has the same exact competitors for two consecutive rounds, the tables will be set with a minimum of opponents who have played each other.

    Round set-up will be determined before the tournament starts depending on the number of competitors are registered for the tournament.

    6 nimmt! may play up to ten players.  We may seat up to ten in the last round.

    Tournament Disputes:
    In the case of a dispute, the tournament organizer’s decision is final.  Please bring any concerns to the tournament organizer at the moment of a rule dispute.

    The scores for each game will be tallied and confirmed upon each game’s completion.  The participants of each game will authenticate the results by signing the score card and the Tournament Organizer will sign each score card as well.  All competitors may review all score cards.

    1. Your scores from each game will be a percentage of the top score for each game.  So. . ., if the top scorer received 100 points and you received 50 points, you would earn a score of .5.  The top scorer (winner) would score 1 point.  For each round, each player can have a maximum of 1 point and a minimum of 0.

    2: In the rare case of a tie existing, the two or more players tied will be assessed as to how each ranked in the most recent game played that they participated in against each other.

    3: In the very, very rare case of a tie still existing, the player with the highest number of points of all of his or her points will be ahead.

    4: In the nearly impossible rare case of a tie, a tie-breaker match will be played if this would occur in the final round of the tournament.  Otherwise, if this is for seating in the next round, the tournament director will rank the players according to their ELO rating in the Board Game Challenge.  If still tied, the tournament director will randomly place each player in a position.
