Another new format we invented 20 minutes before the tournament start!
The first part:
High score tournament on 5 machines, linear scoring.
The second part:
There’s two rounds of “re-dos”. Starting at the lowest ranked player, players choose to either replay one of their tables or make someone else replay a table (the initiator’s choice!). If a player chooses to replay their own table, they only keep the new score if it’s higher than the initial score. If a player gets a replay thrust upon them, they have to take the new score. No player has to replay a game more than once, and no player can have more than two unwilling replays.
We’re just finishing up now, and it’s gone really well!
