2022 Tournament Format HMW-Points

In the 15th century, Portuguese explorers set off to establish colonies in South America, Africa and Asia, and to gain control of valuable goods in the process. Navegador is the latest game in the "rondel" series that also includes Antike, Imperial and Hamburgum. In it, you can explore the world, found profitable colonies, and manipulate market prices back home.

Navegador is an economic game with an exploration aspect; unlike Imperial or Antike, players do not engage in direct conflict. Instead, the conflict takes place in the marketplace and in the race to be the first to take control of a profitable colony. Since the bonuses that players pick up during play will determine what aspects of the game will net them the most points in the end, several strategies are valid.

ADVANCEMENT TIEBREAKERS: Advancement to the semifinal will be using the Heats Most Wins - Points standard tiebreakers.

HEATS: MOST WINS - POINTS (HMW-P):Tie-breakers are:

  1. Most Wins (e.g., total in all heats entered)
  2. Most Second Places
  3. Fewest total points behind first place in second place finishes. Not playing in a heat counts as an N/A for this criteria, not 0 points
  4. Fewest total points behind first place in all finishes. Not playing in a heat counts as an N/A for this criteria, not 0 points
  5. Fewest Heats
  6. High dice roll.
