Given the great success of all Caribbean maps — i.e. all maps related to the Caribbean Basin, including the Gulf of Mexico — and given that we are approaching Christmas, I think it's nice to organize the...

This is the plan: 60 players will compete in 114 simultaneous games, which is:
8 games per person (with a number of players varying from 3 to 6), each game on a different map but Caribbean played twice;
6 games are Death-Match and 2 games are Capitals.
Other settings are the same for all tournament games: 24h (consecutive) turns,  increasing cards,  "sunny view",  original dice.


More specifically the 8 games are:

Texas faces the Gulf of Mexico and its map deserved to be there too, but it's too big for the purpose. However the United States map represents the whole country including Texas, Florida and the other States of the Gulf Coast. B)

Tournament points are awarded as follow:
+N for winning a game with N players;
+1 for each draw* game;
 0  for each game lost;
−1 for each turn missed;

(this is also for discouraging the strategy of skipping their turn at the fifth card forced turn-in).

It should start around the 1st day of December (possibly). If you decide to participate, please check the site every 24 hours on those days to be ready to play. I think it will end before Christmas, but in case you are planning some trips for the holidays be sure to be able to take your turns. However I feel like we will be covid-locked at home, in that case the best we could do is just play!! :D

Hi, can you post here a list of the players registered in the tournament and whether they have sent you the 100 battle tokens yet or not? It will make things easier for everyone. Thanks!

Congrats for being the first! :thumbs:

It doesn't look very likely to get to 60 players before the beginning of December, so I'm planning a smaller version with only 48 or 36 players. :'(

Okay that's nice. Please guys just send me a Private Message to be registered.

I'm thinking about splitting the token prize between the first and the second placement, even the third maybe.
Like .. 2 third, 1 third .. or .. 1 half, 1 third, 1 sixth.
Or do people prefer a single prize: all the tokens to the first ?

My vote is to split the tokens.
