******************************************

This is a Special Welcoming Event 2.S2: 3p/4p Glen More


Spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AoYE2bGf--iMdDJ...


*******************************************************

Sign-up Information

a) Sign-ups: Open through about October 24, give or take a few days, and the tournament will begin immediately at that time. To enter the event simply post to this thread with your yucata username (if different from your BGG username) and subscribe to this thread to receive updates about the tournament as it progresses.

b) Format: This tournament format will be "Swiss Combo" with 3p and 4p games. Here is the gist:

i) Each round, players will be grouped into pods of six players. The groupings will be done approximately swiss-style, meaning you will be grouped with players closest to you in the standings. Players ranked 1-6 will be Pod 1, 7-12 will be Pod 2, etc. The opening pairings will be random.

ii) There will be four rounds. In each round, you will play five simultaneous games: three 4p games and two 3p games, all against other players in your pod.

iii) Scoring will be as follows:

For 3p games:
1st - 3 EP
2nd - 2 EP
3rd - 1 EP

For 4p games:
1st - 4 EP
2nd - 3 EP
3rd - 2 EP
4th - 1 EP
***ties - lowest value + 1 EP per tied player.

iv) The pairings for each round will be based on the cumulative standings up to that point.

v) There will be a playoffs among the top ranked players (might be two or three pods, depending on entries). The playoffs will use the same format except that prior results will not count. Everyone starts the playoffs with a fresh slate.

************************************************

Player Expectations - Please Read If You Are New to YPS

Everyone is absolutely welcome to play! Please do keep in mind that these tournaments are run primarily by the players and replacing players who drop out or disappear mid-tournament is quite disruptive due to the multiplayer nature of the games. To keep the tournament moving along and make sure it doesn't take all year to conclude, I hope that everyone who signs up will agree to do the following:

a) Play through at least the first phase of the tournament, which will include about 10 games and will probably take about 2 months.

b) Make moves about once a day, in general. If you are only on five days a week, or will take one vacation for a week, that is totally fine.

c) Create and accept invitations and update the tournament spreadsheet with results in a punctual manner.

d) Read all missives from the TO and respond when appropriate. Make sure you subscribe to the tournament thread to keep udpated on tournament news.

e) Report any problems/issues promptly to the TO directly or this thread. These might include a mistake in your yucata name, a need to be away from yucata for a period, another player who is not making moves, a yucata glitch affecting your game, an incorrect invitation, etc.

Please post here with questions/comments/feedback, and please sign up if you like! Also please thumb this thread to help publicize.

Despite your hope, there is not even any inherent symbolism; gravity is simply a coincidence.
