JSOC Tournament II Signups Open Again

After a troublesome start, the entry form for the second Java Settlers of Catan tournament is open again.

Please register soon — I’d like to get signups complete by August 31st so we can conclude the tourney by the start of October. The tournament will start on September 1st and end on September 15th.

Here’s a repost from the original entry:

Okay, we’re cranking up the Java Settlers of Catan II Tournament. My buddy Stilts will be hosting the event. Registration will run until August 4, 2006. There’s no cost to enter. If you are new(ish) to Settlers of Catan or JSOC, you may want to read my JSOC Settlers of Catan Guide.

Tournament Rules

  • The tournament will start on August 7, 2006 and will end on August 21, 2006. If all players have finished their 8 games, then the tournament may end early.
  • Each contestant must finish at least 5 games in order to qualify for scoring. You can finish no more than 8 games.
  • The tournament will be won by whomever has the highest number of victory points at the end of the regulation period.
  • You can receive no more than 11 victory points per game, except in the case of an all-human game, wherein you can receive a maximum of 12 points.
  • At least two human players must start and finish a game in order for it to count.
  • You will earn one additional victory point if your game consists of four human players (no robot players at any time).

JSOC Quirks

  • You can trade and build in any order and in any combination. Meaning, you can trade, build, trade, build, etc. during the same turn.
  • The robber may be returned to the desert. Although we normally make chicken sounds if you do so.
  • You may initiate trade with whomever holds the dice unsolicited. If it is player A’s turn, you may offer player A a trade.

Tournament Mechanics

  • Please sign up at the tournament registration page.
  • Sign ups will close on August 4.
  • You may play valid (at least 2 human) tournament games at any time. However, we would like to propose that people be available for 8PM – 11PM EST (5PM – 8PM PST) for tournament games. Meaning, if you want to play with other people, we suggest you sign on at those hours. We’re not asking you to be online for three hours a day from 8/7 – 8/21 🙂

Good luck — please email me if you have any questions!
