The format of the tournament is likely to be over 6 qualifier rounds (at different locations) eg Cassian Kitchen, Boardgame Depot, OTK Cheras etc



At each qualifier, we want two winners so depending on how many gamers took part, there'll be one or two rounds. The two winners shud come from one round of 4-6 player session.



The two winners from each of the qualifiers will then meet on FINALS day to compete in a semi-final round (two boards of 6 players) with the three winners from each board advancing to a FINAL board of 6 players.



Prizes for Top Three Finishers. http://community.boardgamecafe.net/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/scarf.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='[scarf]' />



[size="3"]what do you think would be a good choice of prize?[/size]





Note: We are still in discussion with Bill Gates to sponsor this and until then, go easy with the prize suggestion. http://community.boardgamecafe.net/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/whistle3.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':whistle3:' />

Really interested but so far away to join. when will the first leg will be held? btw do participants need to sign up here to join it or can register during the competition?



For the prize; i think give more boardgames would be better, this will help promo this activities to others. if gives money; then, it will be spend in other things.

Ideally registered first to join, but am sure we'll allow walk-in. What's norm is walk-in has a higher registration fee.
