Demonstration: Wednesday 13 @ Exhibit Annex Table 4
Mulligan: Monday @ 18 - Ski Lodge First Tracks Poolside
Round 1/5: Wednesday @ 14 - Ski Lodge First Tracks Poolside
Labyrinth is back for its sixth year to build on the success of 2015's mulligan round and demo.
The tournament will be single elimination with one Mulligan Round. In the Mulligan Round, players cannot be eliminated. Instead, players who win that round will receive byes for the first round of play, advancing directly to the second round. Losers of the Mulligan Round and new entrants must do battle in Round 1 at 2 PM Wednesday. Seeding for the Mulligan Round and subsequent rounds will be determined by random lottery. If necessary, byes will be awarded to previous champions, most recent first.
The scenario for all games will be "Lets Roll" with one deck play.
Players will select sides by bidding besieged regime and/or Aid markers for the right to play a particular side. Players will first roll one six-sided die each; the player who rolls highest will start the bidding. Ties will be re-rolled. Players can start the bidding at any number (including 0) and make subsequent bids at any higher number and marker type (or, if the first bid is 0, players may bid 0). If both players bid 0, the players will choose between themselves by consent or further dice roll who will play the U.S. side.
If bidding ends with a number greater than 0, the non-winning bidder will take a number of besieged regime/aid markers (depending on side) equal to the winning bid and place them in countries that either (a) start with poor governance or (b) start with no governance and have a resource value of 1.
Additional Prizes: GMT offers a merchandise credit to the winner.
