The draw

Round 1 – random draw with players from same “group” avoiding each other.  If 2 from the same group are drawn together new opponents are drawn for both.


Round 2 – Players with 10+ points will be placed in a “pool” and drawn from randomly first, followed by those with 6-10 points and then those with 5 or less points.  Any “orphaned” player will drop to the next pool to face the next player drawn.

Players from the same group may play each other in rounds 2 and 3.

 “Rematches” are avoided by placing the second name drawn on the next table down and new opponents drawn for both.  If the last 2 players drawn results in a rematch the second name drawn swaps up a table.


Round 3 – Players fill the places in the order of their current points total from rounds 1 and 2.  I.e. first placed v second placed etc. 

Any “rematches” are avoided as above.

If there is a tie the player with the higher score on “countback” of opponents scores will be placed higher.  If still tied, decided by drawing 1 card each with the higher card winning!

 

Points scoring

1 point for each medal captured with a bonus of +3 points for being unbroken at the end of the battle and a further +3 for breaking the enemy.
