get to choose from the prize pool.
We'll also play Los Cthuluchadores: Elder Things In The Wrestling Ring board game.
Times and Timing
The tournament will start at 10am on Sunday. You will have exactly one hour to play each game. If the game is finished before 60 minutes of play, let the judge know and they will take down the numbers
After each game there will be a 15 minute break. You may leave gaming during this time but you must be back in time to start the next game as you will not be allowed to jump in a game that has already started.
Questions and Help
Although you can ask other players for help to clarify rules, keep in mind that the players do not have to tell the truth. Judges are impartial. You can ask the judge for help with a rules issue, but the judge will not play your game for you. The judge has final say on any issues that arise.
Scoring and Prizes
For Dominion, DC, and ED, victory points count. For Innovation, the number of achievements count. For each game, the player who came in first gets 10 tournament points, second gets 9, etc. All tournament points will be added at the end of play. You must be present at the end of the tournament to claim a prize. The top 4 players get prizes. Prizes will be claimed round-robin style, with the top player choosing from the prize pile first, then the second place finisher, and so on, until all prizes have been claimed.Once a prize has been claimed by a player it becomes that player’s property. Players may trade their prizes with others or even give them away. However, no player may sell any prizes while on the hotel premises.
