Check out this Geeklist for the scoop on the BGG/Yucata Players Series:

Multiplayer Tournaments on Yucata.de - BGG/Yucata Players Series, Season 1

Here is the spreadsheet for this event:
https://docs.google.com/a/hotchkiss.org/spreadsheet/ccc?key=...

This is Event 04: 4p St. Petes, Round Robin.

Sign-up Information

a) Sign-ups: Open now through about March 15, 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).

b) Format: This will be a round robin (all-play-all) tournament of 4-player games. The exact format will depend on the number of entrants, and will be clarified when the field is set and the tournament begins. Generally speaking, in the first round of the tournament you will play a number of 4p games, in batches of 3-5 games at a time, against a wide variety of players, and you will earn one point for each opponent you defeat. There may be as many as three distinct phases of the tournament, with fewer players qualifying for each phase. Altogether, the tournament might take as long as 3-5 months to conclude.

c) Variant: St. Petersburg+ ("fixed" cards to replace the originals, no other expansion.

d) Optional Prize Pool: If you would like, you may tip this post with a voluntary GG contribution to the prize pool. 1GG, 3GG, and 5GG are all common entries, although you are welcome to give more if you have a bunch, and everyone is warmly invited to play regardless of contribution. 100% of entry GG will go into the prize pool, which will be distributed to the highest finishers, and I'll throw some of my own into get to a nice round number.

e) General Notes: Everyone is welcome to play. Please keep in mind that you are making a commitment to play a handful of games over the next two months or so, and I hope everyone who signs up will try to move about once per day (or more) on average to keep things moving. This event 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.

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

Game Play Information

If you are playing in a YPS Event for the first time and would like more explanation of how the spreadsheet works, look for the FAQ tab at the bottom of the page when you open the document.

Variant Information: Your invitations should be four player, Saint Petersburg+ Option, No Hidden Cards. The info field should have the game code (for example, A6, or C2).

Invitations and Results Entry: For a detailed explanation of the protocol for creating invitations and entering results, please check the FAQ tab of the spreadsheet for this event.

Schedule

Phase 1: Pod Play

i) There are 2 pods of 36 players each. All pod assignments and pairings have been done randomly.

ii) You will play 10 games in two batches of five games each.

iii) You will play most of the other players in your pod exactly once (due to the number of participants, there are five players in your whom you will not play).

iv) You will earn one point for each opponent you defeat. In other words, you will earn 3 pts for first place, 2 pts for second place, 1 pt for third place, and 0 pts for fourth place.

Phase 2: Semi-Final Round

i) Qualification: The top 8 players from each pod will qualify for the semi-final round, 16 players total. The tie-breaking protocol will be head-to-head result first, and Point Share in the case of complex multi-way ties (Point share is the % of points you scored out of all the points score in games you played).
ii) Format: There will one batch of 5 games. Each player will play 2 of the other players twice, 2 of the other players zero times, and 11 of the other players once. This is as close to an all-play-all model as I've been able to achieve with 16p and 5 matches.
iii) Again, you will earn one point for each opponent you defeat. Your results in Pod Play will no longer count in the semi-final round. However, I will use a seeding system to determine pairings for this round, so the higher-ranked players from Pod Play will be paired often against the lower-ranked players from Pod Play. In this way, a very strong record in Pod Play still benefits you significantly.

Phase 3a: Championship Round

i) The top 4 players will compete in the championship round.
ii) The players will play four simultaneous games with each other.
iii) The final standings will be determined by combined score across these four games.
iv) Ties should be rare. If they do occur, tie-breaking protocol will be total Point Share across all matches of the tournament.

Phase 3b: The 5/8 Round

The players ranked 5-8 in the Semi-final round will play an identical set of games to the championship round described above.

Final Prize Pool:

1st - 40GG
2nd - 30GG
3rd - 20GG
4th - 15GG
5th - 12GG
6th - 10GG
7th-8th - 8GG
