Tournament Information: All games at the WBC tournament
will be AREA rated. Players should make sure they have the most
recent version of the rules found at the Columbia Games website
linked below and to the right.
Format: We will be playing a three-round swiss elimination
tournament at the WBC. Each round will last approximately three
hours. Players will be randomly paired for the first round and
then they will be paired with players of similar records. Players
will bid VP's to play the Americans. Players that bid the same
will randomly pick who wins the bid (Place an Activation Card
face down for bids 1-3, then reveal them at the same time, bids
higher than 3 will take more than one card). The top four players
will then advance to the single elimination part of the tournament
(the top two will advance at Block Party). The tie breaker to
advance to the SE portion are as follows:
1. The number of wins.
2. Head to head matches between the players.
3. The winning percentage of opponents.
4. Average AREA ratings of the opponents.
Players should make sure they have the most recent version
of the rules found at the Columbia Games website.
The tourneys will NOT use any of the optional rules or variants.
