Yeah, it's time for another. But this time, by popular demand, I'm adding a wrinkle.
Pretty simple really. I create the one-on-one matchup, each participant sends me a PM saying which one they pick. Rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper, paper beats rock. In the case of there being a tie, players will also send me a second choice in the PM. If there's still a tie, then the game ends in a draw.
Tournament structure will be a single round robin which will determine seeding. The knockout round will be your standard seeded ladder structure, with the top four seeds earning first-round byes. In the round robin, players get 1 point for a win, 0 points for a loss, and 0.5 points for a tie. There are no draws in the knockout round, obviously.
BETTING RULES ZOMG IT'S HAPPENING:
If you don't want to test your skills at Rock/Paper/Scissors, or if you weren't able to sign up in time, or if you did sign up but want to take part anyway, I'm adding a betting feature for this game. Basically, anytime you want (even if the tournament has already started), just indicate your interest and I'll start you off with 100 gold (note: this sum is not transferable to future Pirate Ship Mafia games Barto). You can then wager on... whatever you want, so long as you have somebody to take your bet - I'm too lazy to be an actual bookie and establish odds, etc. At least not right away.
Transactions can be confirmed publicly or privately, as long as both sides agree on the stakes.
The person with the most gold at the end of the tournament is crowned, uh, Gameroom betting champion, I guess.
Post here to indicate interest in the tournament, betting, or both. For the tournament, I can take any number of players so long as we get at least 8, though I'll probably cap it at 13. Best of luck to all, and happy WIFOMing!
