Demonstration: Friday 16 @ Exhibit Annex Table 5
Round 1/5: Saturday @ 9 - Ballroom
The most recent US edition of the rules (Mayfair 5th Edition - Catan) will be used in the tournament. All games will use the standard variable setup. The current setup instructions and rules clarifications will be provided to each table.
There are three preliminary rounds, the results of which qualify 16 players for a Single Elimination semifinal leading to a 4-player final. Players are welcome to play in any or all of the preliminary rounds. Please check in with the GM prior to each round you play. Arrive early if possible and bring a game if you have one. Tables will be randomly assigned for the three preliminary rounds. Let the GM know if you are seated with a teammate in your team game.
Please complete the tournament scoresheet with your name and badge number when you have time during the game. Game winners are responsible for turning in a completed table scoresheet to the GM when the game is over. Any games not finished by 15 minutes prior to the start of the next round will be halted at the end of the fourth players turn and adjudicated as finished by the GM. Any ties for first place will be resolved in reverse player order by the GM.
Advancing to the semifinal games will be determined by most wins, then most second places, then the total points scored in games. Any ties will be resolved by a GM die roll. Players will be placed at tables by their rank:
Table 1 - #1, 8, 9,16
Table 2 - #2, 7, 10, 15
Table 3 - #3, 6, 11, 14
Table 4 - #4, 5, 12, 13
Semifinal winners advance to the final. Ties for places other than first in the final are resolved by the ranking coming into the semifinals. Fifth and sixth place are determined by the highest runner-up scores in the semifinals, then by ranking coming into the semifinals.
