2023 Tournament Format  Heats Most Wins - Points

"Capture and subjugate birds to have them do your bidding in this bird-collection, engine-building game. You’ll be competing against your fellow wannabe ornithologists to take home the prestigious and obviously really real BEST BIRD title *.

* BEST BIRD title has no monetary or scholarly value.

The tournament will be run with 3 Heats followed by a Semifinal and Final. Preliminary rounds will try to use tables of 4 players, with the Semifinal and Final played at a count of 4 per table. No expansions will be used unless all players at the table agree. The Power 4 Birds (Chihuahuan Raven, Common Raven, Franklin's Gull, and Killdeer) will not be used and must be removed from the common deck prior to the game starting.

Advancement to the Semifinal will use the Heats Most Wins Points standard tiebreakers.


  1. Most Wins (e.g., total in all heats entered)
  2. Total Points – Players earn the following pints in each heat they entered:
    • 1st Place - 1,000 points
    • 2nd Place - 100 points
    • 3rd Place - 10 points
    • 4th Place - 1 points
    • All other places - 0 points
    • e.g. player has a 1st, 2nd, and 4th in three heats: total points would be 1,101
  3. GM Specific Tie-breaker - None Specified
  4. High dice roll.
