Welcome to Stately Plays first decathlon tournament! The aim of this tournament is to bring a number of classic and favourite games to the table for one quick play. Points will be awarded based on your finishing place in each game, with the 3 highest total scores at the end being awarded gold, silver and bronze medals.
I have divided the selected games up into 2 sections, much like an actual decathlon. The first set of games will be played against other random players. Once the first set of games have finished I will create a seeded table based on the accumulated scores, and the second set of games will be played within those seeded brackets, similar to Dukesters recent race for the galaxy tournament.
Without further ado, here are the games I have selected based on community feedback, games that I consider classic on our platform, and a couple of games I just really wanted to get to the table.
Carcassonne (with river)
Star realms (core game unless agreed by both players)
Lords of Waterdeep (with undermountain)
Tigris and Euphrates
Ascension (core game unless agreed by both players)
Race for the galaxy (BoW expansion)
All games capable of 3 players should be played with 3 players, except brass which really benefits from having a fourth player.
I hope to have 2 different games running at once on “Day 1” as the games are lighter and should make this part of the tournament move faster.
I think we all understand that not all these games will be to everyones taste. I think the focus here should be on having fun, and if you’re playing a game you don’t like then you’re probably not going to have fun. To that end, if there is a game you don’t like or otherwise don’t want to play, please let me know in advance and I can remove you from the draw for that game. For the sake of simplicity I was planning on recording that game as a loss, and rearranging the remaining players so everyone who wants to play that game can play.
Signups are still open and will remain open for the next 4 days. I have listed below players who have already expressed an interest.
If you have account names other than this screen name please let your opponents know at the time. I could record them here but multiple games may have multiple seperate accounts names.
