Tournament Explanation:

Choosing Your Game

Each time you are ready for a game, you will send me a note with the top three choices of games you'd like to play, in order of interest for THAT round, and mark which side you'd like to play. (Use this form  and 'Any' is an acceptable choice for a game.) Where possible I will match available players who have a matching set of choices on their list.

 Players sign up and submit their top three game and side choices for round 1, and the pairings will begin!  If you are ready -- use this link to send me your first round choices! Click here!

Why a Tournament?

Tournaments are a great way to meet new opponents, and to get experience playing VASSAL, etc.

With enough players, you should not have to wait too long for the next opponent to be available. (IF you are flexible on which game you want to play, of course.)

And - you can play as FEW games as you like, or as many!  Interested? Below is the outline.

Tournament OUTLINE:

I. The Details:
[1.0] All games will use VASSAL modules.
[2.0] The Games will be an exchange of VASSAL logs.
[3.0] OPTIONAL If you and your opponent mutually agree, you can choose to play head to head (live) on the VASSAL server.

II NOTE: If EITHER player wants an outside die roller, you will use an outside dice roller.

III. This is a Swiss System Tournament.
Players continue to play in each round as long as they wish to play, as long as I have someone to match you with!
A Swiss system tries to match you with players that have the same number of wins as you.

IV. Start date: Now.

As soon as I have 4 sign ups, we have the potential to begin.

End date? I will continue to match players as long as I have players to match!
