We have eight players which is a great number for a tournament! So lets get started.
We will start with two groups of four in a round robin, best 2 out of 3 games for each match. After the round robin will be a single elimination tournament, also best 2 out of 3 games. The round robin results will determine the ranking for the tournament, and everyone will advance.
The first and third games will be started by the first listed person in the matches, the second game will be started by the second listed person in the match.
Also, make the games 14 day games just so there are not any time-outs.
Anyone can start a game. I thought the invitee always went second. Turns out that is not true.
Try to make two turns a day. Now that there are good notifications from PE this should be much easier. Play as many or as few games as you are comfortable. I'll probably stick to two.
