While running a tournament usually requires at least a few games in one location, there is at least one IFPA sanctioned format that doesn’t. In Seattle it’s called Super League and I think San Francisco calls it Selfie League. Essentially it’s the qualifying portion of a pump and dump tournament, but spread out over a week or month on however many games and locations you have access to. Seattle has a finals as well that make it worth a significant amount of points overall, but I don’t think that’s strictly required.
Points are something like 100 for first, 95 for second, 90 for third, then 89, 88, 87 for everything after that.
I’m not personally a fan of the format, but a lot of people love it. Germaine runs it in Seattle but I don’t know his TF handle to tag him.
Are there any other formats that could have as few as say three machines in three different locations? How is TGP calculated for something like this? Would three games count as only three games played total? Could you take each player’s top three scores on each game and call that nine games played? I’m just trying to think of something to help our friends in towns with very few games total and no central location.
