Become the Catan champion of Louisiana and win a free trip to GenCon 2018 in Indianapolis! The event is Saturday, March 24. $20 entry includes lunch. Click to pre-register now!
The winner will get $250 travel money in cash, free registration to GenCon, a paid hotel room shared with one other qualifier winner, and a special dinner for all qualifier winners. Plus of course entry into the Catan National Championship held at GenCon!
In addition, the first 32 players to register will get a set of plush Catan dice; the top 16 semi-finalists will get Catan Con 2015 tiles and components, plus the Cathedral city expansion card; the top 4 finalists will get a 4-player set of unique player pieces!
The Qualifier will have three rounds:
Round 1: Everyone will play three games of Catan. Each table will host three to four players. The game layout will be pre-determined and identical at all tables. The referee will assign seating for each game.
Semi-Final Round: The top 16 players will go on to play a single game at four tables.
Final Round: The winner of each semi-final table will proceed to the final round and play a single game. The winner of this game is the overall winner!
The primary score during Round 1 is based on the number of games you win. In case of a tie, your sum total of victory points is the first tiebreaker. If a tie still exists, your percentage of victory points out of all points scored at each table is the final tiebreaker. (In the case of three-player tables, a phantom fourth player is added with a score equal to the average of each player’s score.)
We’ll provide pizza after the first round for all attendants, included with the entry fee. If you don’t want pizza, talk to a staffer about a free drink instead.
