I tried at some point helping with organizing a Tournament but I didn't work... too much mobility and replacements.

But I think now with Feast for Crows we could arrange a small tournament with more reliability.

So... Who wants to play a Small League using Feast for Crows??

Hi Hope! Count me in for such a tournament, I love the FFC expansion!

In adddition I could add a "Tournament mode" which disables the possibility to replace players. But I fear this will lead to many stalled games. Any suggestions how to handle quitters in tournaments properly are very welcome and as always I try my best to satisfy your needs.


Cheers

Not sure if disabling replacements is worthy... But a Small Token indicating the game is a Tournament one would be cool! I just checked too and we can place this icon 🏆 in the game title (I didn't know this was possible).

Let's see what you people think of this:

  • Each Person will play 4 games. One with each House: Stark, Arryn, Baratheon and Lannister

  • Any unfinished game after 1 month of the Start Date will be accounted considering last turn standings.

Keen 😊

You might also consider running a follow-on tournament of winners (semi finals, quarter finals, finals) based on the final standings after 4 games maybe with randomised houses?

What do you mean by that KevinL? A 2nd Phase? One Final Match Randomised?

Not really sure if I'd like that... I'd prefer to have "Seasons" every month with a restart and the possibility of new players to join and old players to drop if they want.

Yeah I don't have any issues with that, was just wondering what a tiebreaker scenario would look like (say we end the season with 4 players all on 20 points, perhaps we should then have a final champions of champions match to determine the overall winner)

The Iron Bank probably brings too much chaos? Pyromancer on White Harbor can be disastrous for Stark...
