WBC Atlantic Storm Tournament

The tournament format will be multiple-heat/single elimination. This means that you may play in as many of the four preliminary heats as you wish. Each will consist of as many individual games as necessary to accommodate all comers. Five-player games will be the norm, but I will make adjustments in order to accommodate everyone. For example, if 18 people come to a heat, rather than three 5-player games and one 3-player game, I would set up two five- and two four-player games. Basically I will avoid more than six and fewer than four players in any game.

Everyone that wins a game in the preliminary heats will be eligible to participate in Round 2. There will be an elimination round followed immediately by either a semi-final or a final depending on how many people participate. I will again try to stick to five-player games, but I will be more inclined to increase to six if by doing so I can avoid the need for a semi-final. I got a lot of negative feedback in the past about having the final rounds on Sunday morning since so many other games have their finals on Sunday morning so I have moved the semi-finals and finals. Hopefully this will enable more qualifiers to play in the semi-final rounds.

The standard game rules as well as all optional rules will be used. Pay particular attention to the rule regarding sharing of spoils.
