1st place: 90$ (or 56.25%)
2nd place: 50$ (or 31.25%)
3rd place: 20$ (or 12.5%)
If we end up with fewer than 16 teams (shame on you) then, the prize money will be allocated by percentage.
For the convenience of tournament play, the venue fee will provide:
SF4 on free play until close (Midnight) Big screen hooked up to cabinet for easier watching Bar tables and chairs set up around cabinet for additional convenience
Because there is one cabinet, I have capped the teams at 16 to get an estimation of how long a tournament like this will take. If we finish within a couple of hours, and there is sufficient interest, then I plan to add more team slots in the future. Therefore, because there is a cap, team sign ups are encouraged ahead of time. However,If you sign up online, you must be 99.3% sure you both can attend the tournament. If the signups are full, or your team isn’t sure they can make it, sign up for a substitution spot, where you could be added in if there is a no-show.

When your team arrives and hands in the 20$ tournament fee, you will draw from a hat of sixteen tokens and your team will be assigned a number. This number will not only be your proof of purchase, but it will be used to determine your opponent. (I will also keep a record of this token, so no switching once you find out what number the 8 year-old and the paraplegic have). When a match starts, each team will hand in their token, with the winner getting theirs back. If you don’t have a token, then you won’t be allowed to play. The token number first round matches will be:
1 vs 16
2 vs 15
3 vs 14
4 vs 13
5 vs 12
6 vs 11
7 vs 10
8 vs 9
This will ensure no bias, no seeding, and pure random allocation.
Since this is single elimination, and technically two 3rd place slots, there will be a 3rd place match between the losers of each semi-final match after the finals have been played.
If there are fewer than 16 teams, there will be a random selection of token number(s) who will recieve a first round bye in the tournament.
Because of the single cabinet, and the simplicity of single elimination and the matchup system, matches will be prepared as soon as the tokens are purchased and matches will be called in rapid succession. There will be 3 matches called at one time: The current match, the match on-deck, and the match in the hole. Therefore, you should have an estimate of when you should be called. To be safe, one member of your team should be near the cabinets. If your team misses your fight call, the next match will go on. If you miss the call again, which is immediately after that next match, you are disqualified. No exceptions.
This is the first in hopefully a series of bi-weekly team tournaments. I look forward to seeing you all there and thank you for your continued enthusiasm.
