I am running league finals for our NEPL location next month. We’ve played 7 weeks of play and have standings/rankings up to this point. What I would love to do is run a tournament where everyone gets more than one game (so no single elimination), the play in league matters somehow in finals (either affects matchups or adds a strike or bye or something), and is IFPA compliant, and lasts 4 hrs or less. We only have 10 people.
My initial thought was a knockout style tournament with 4 / 3 / 3 as the groups and 5 strikes for the top 3 players, 4 strikes for the middle 4, and 3 strikes for the bottom 3.
