Greetings All!

The Yucata Players Series is a series of friendly, multiplayer, round robin tournaments conducted using the play-by-web site yucata.de. Everyone is invited to play, and we start a new event every two weeks or so. A typical tournament will involve playing several batches of 3-5 games against a wide variety of players, and might last anywhere from 2-5 months overall.

If you would be interested in playing an event for a particular game: Thumb the entry for that game! This will bump that game up the list and reserve you a spot when the game gets its own event.

If you would like to follow along with the Yucata Players Series and learn immediately about new events: Subscribe to this Geeklist. I will always post news about events here; AND/OR bookmark this spreadsheet, which keeps track of new events, the players who play in them, and overall results:

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

What's this about a leaderboard? How does that work?

For those of you who will be playing in a variety of events over the course of the series, I have added a way to normalize your results across events and eventually determine a Player of the Year! The short version is, you get some points based on your round robin play performance, and you get some bonus points if you make the playoffs. If you want to know the nitty gritty of the formulas, check the Player Series spreadsheet.

Much more difficult game to successfully plan ahead with 4P, but still very fun. Power and Glory map/expansion rules perhaps help with that.

There is a 5p El Grande event running over on the yucata boards at the moment, but later in the year we might give it a go with 3p or 4p and a round robin format.

I don't personally play that many 2p games, but I like this one a lot. We could perhaps do pool play for the formatting in groups of 6 or 8?

I don't know what kind of interest there is in this, but I would love to see a Kamisado tournament on Yucata!

I wouldn't mind something like a seeded elimination format, or a round-robin format.
