2023 Tournament Format Heats Most Wins - 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. In Navegador, you can explore the world, found profitable colonies, and manipulate market prices back home.

Navegador is an economic game with an exploration aspect; 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.

Sixteen players will advance to the Semifinal based on the Heats Most Wins standard tiebreakers. Semifinal winners advance to the Final


  1. Most Wins (e.g., total in all heats entered)

    • 2nd Place - 100 points
    • 3rd Place - 10 points
    • 4th Place - 1 points
