Tonight will be a special New Years Eve Tournament!
The format will be three 100-point rounds that all players will play in, and then a 100-point final round for the 4 finalists. The winner will receive a special prize for tonight's tourney, and this will still give east-coasters time to ring in the new year.
The scoring will be different than EOM/EOY tourneys. Rather than giving points like EOM & EOY, your scores will be captured from the game, but 50 points will be shaved off the winner's score (with ultimate low of zero in case the winner's score was less than 50). This removes any incentive for 2nd or 3rd to put 4th over in case a game is close, and also reduces the benefit of a complete blow-out, but still awards true winners. The 4 players with the lowest 3-round adjusted score totals advance to the finals.
Note to the potential winner: please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your address to receive your prize!
Happy New Years to all!
