Ancient Auction

Play the innovative and challenging game of Ra! by Rio Grande Games that spans three epochs of Egyptian history. This game is very easy to learn and fun to play with no additional house rules of any kind. Beginners are most welcome, and rules will be taught at the scheduled teaching demo in Paradise Terrace and can often be learned in any of the numerous Rio Grande playing demos in Cafe Jay or open gaming. The game will NOT be taught during or just prior to the actual event. The object of the game is to accumulate the most points by the end of the third and final epoch.

Two-hour, five-player games: Play in any or all of the four heats.

The top 25 players will advance to Single Elimination play in Round 2 using the following tie-breakers:

1. Won in first heat entered

2. Total numbers of wins

3. Won in second heat entered

4. Won in third heat entered

5. Won in fourth heat entered

6. Greatest margin of victory over runner-up score

Since a win won in the first heat played beats a win won in the second heat played, and so on—there is no penalty whatsoever for continuing to play in additional heats—you can only improve your chances—not lessen them—by continuing to play—but it is is still possible to qualify to advance by playing in only one heat].

If 25 winners donít appear for the semi-finals, the field will be filled with non-winners according to the same format as the winners. Most 2ndís, a 2nd in the first heat, a 2nd in the second heat, etc. The argument against non-winners advancing was that a non-winner could win the tournament. Thatís not true. To win, you will still have to win at least two games even if they come in the last two rounds.
