The TEAM tournament is not yet OPEN for new submissions.

The DEADLINE for Team Submissions is July 16 , 2017.

Teams are composed of any four players pre-registered as a team. Each team member must select a different event as his official game. Team members and games may change by July 16. No changes may take place thereafter—including on-site. In case of conflicting entries, the last version received is official. Teams consist of four pre-registered individuals. They must each select a different team game. Send the name of the team (up to 20 characters, including spaces), the name of each team member and his or her team game to the convention director at

(See also the Pre-Registration Flyer—when it is released—for details.)

All Team Points are awarded automatically when the GM turns in the Winner’s Claim for an event (see the Points Schedule). A bonus point will be awarded to everyone who earns team points in an event that they have previously not won. The team that gains the most points is the winner. The number of entrants in each team’s events is the tie-breaker.

Scoring: To improve the speed with which the standings are updated, each Team Member, whether they score a point or not, should post their point totals on the Team Tournament kiosk Standings Board in the Exhibit Hall as soon as they are known. The Point Schedule will be listed in the printed program. Those who score points in an event they have never won will receive one bonus point. While the self-service scoring is unofficial and subject to verification, it allows attendees to gain a current sense of where they are in the standings as the week unfolds. Since the results of some events are not known until the very end (and later) of the convention, the official scoring will be done the following week and posted here. Each member of the winning team receives a Team plaque and is memorialized on the website and in the Yearbook. The winning team will receive a plaque at the following convention.

BRACKET BUSING CONTEST: All pre-registrants will receive an email invitation to participate in the bracket busting contest with the final teams and odds shortly before WBC begins. Join the fun and win a free membership next year by picking the most Top Ten teams.
