UPDATE: Some folks have requested that the number of games going at once stay manageable, so I plan to cap the event at 28 runners, and leave about three weeks between the start of the first and second set of games. Hopefully, no one will have more than 5 games going at once.

I love yucata tournaments. Hopefully you do as well. Let's get one started for this simple, popular, dynamic game!

Format: 4-player games, Round Robin. You will play each other player in the tournament exactly once in groups of 4. Depending on the number of runners, you might play 9 or 13 games overall, in two or three batches, spaced two weeks apart. We will begin running games as soon as we fill up with 28, 40, or 52 runners. Update: I realized I forgot to stipulate that players ranked 1-4 will play a final playoff after the round robin games. These four master carcassonners will play 3-simultaneous 4p games, and the top combined score will take the day! A similar playoff will take place with players ranked 5-8.

Scoring: You will get one point for each opponent you defeat. Ties will be worth half a point to each tied player.

Entry Fee: Optional entry fee of 5GG, or more if you're flush and feel like it. In order to sign up, please post a response here with your yucata Username, and tip this post if you would like with your contribution to the prize pool.


Prizes: All the GG will be distributed in the prize pool. Exact distribution will depend on number of runners, but roughly the top 15% of finishers will get something. Update: Settlerdave has also generously offered to donate a hilarious carcassonne themed mug as an extra grand prize. See post 26 for an image. Thanks, Dave!

General Notes: Everyone is welcome to play. Please keep in mind that you are making a commitment to play a pretty significant number of games over the next two months or so, and I hope everyone who signs up will try to move at least once each typical day to keep things moving. This tournament will be run by we, the players, so everyone who plays is responsible for inviting player to games, and entering results when you're done. I'll take care of pairings and database creation, and details about all that will follow when the field is set.

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

P.S. - Big Props to 1000rpm for running a couple of these tournies and creating the basic format, which works really well.

When are you intending to start? I'm interested, but it is summer here and I have at least a week coming up where I will probably be off-line (as off around 18-Jan-2013), so it would be a tad rude of me to enter if the comp would already be running by then.

Hi There -
I would guess it would take at least one week to get filled up and going, probably two. I would say you are fine to enter if you'll be ready to play by the last week in January or so.

I'm interested, but only if there are not too many participants.

Right now I'm playing a dozen Stone Ages, and that's really too many all at once.

For those of you feeling overwhelmed by the large quantity of Stone Age, I think we can avoid the same overload in Carcassonne. With only 20 rounds per game, they should be faster than Stone Age, and I plan to stagger the games in groups of about 4, give or take, with basically enough time between groups to complete the previous group before starting the next one.

If we are still under 28 by the middle/end of the week, I'll probably cap it there and get started.

Hi Everyone - Just a note that I changed the entry fee to optional to make sure no one is discouraged from joining. I'll make sure the total prize pool is at least 5GG per runner, so never fear!
