GBAtemp Tournament Announcement! Club House Games / 42 All-Time Classics We are happy to announce the Official GBAtemp Tournament #3: Club House Games / 42 All-Time Classics! THE RULES The rules for this tournament are quite simple; however, it is advised that you read them very carefully! A match is played by 8 persons simultaneously. In one match, people will play one round of each of those four games: sevens, darts, word balloon, balance, in no particular order. The person ranked first to a round (ie. Darts) gets 8 points, the second gets 7 points, the third gets 6 points... etc. The winner of a match is the person that gets most points after all 4 rounds. In case of a draw after all four games are played, the impacted players should play another round of Balance to determine the winner. Cheaters will be severely punished and will be permanently banned from the entire GBAtemp network. Cheating includes both the use of software cheat codes and physical cheating -- for example a ruler to adjust your aiming in Darts. To every match will be assigned a specific topic on which all 8 players might discuss the game and post the results of the game (not necessarily every match detail but at least the name of the winner). On this topic, people should also exchange friend codes. By default, the host of a game should be the member with the oldest registration date, although you may come to an agreement with the other members of your group to define another host. The tournament is open to all our members and newcomers. And please bear in mind that registering multiple accounts is forbidden. As you may have noticed, Word Balloon is one of the unlockable games. However, the game needs to be unlocked by the host only; other players don't need to have the game unlocked. Anyway, it can be unlocked very easily (Finish Level 1 in Stamp Mode) so we thought a little bit of training can't hurt! But if you're the real lazy kind, we will provide savegames in which the game is unlocked. THE DATES On the last two tournaments, we had allowed people to decide of their own date and time for their match. This time, we believe this would be an impossible challenge; so instead we have decided to define global match dates. Everyone will have to respect the fixed date & time. If someone doesn't show up on time, they are automatically eliminated. So, before registering we recommend that you make sure you are available on that date & time before you register. Registrations will be open before this sunday (the 19th) and will close one day prior the match dates. The match dates are: Round 1 European & African time zones: Sunday 26th of August, 4:00pm UTC Round 1 American time zones: Sunday 26th of August, 4:00pm Pacific Time Round 1 Asian & Oceanian time zones: Sunday 26th of August, 4:00pm GMT+10 We will be posting e-mail reminders to all participants one hour prior the rounds of each region. Another important point: we will sort people into 3 groups (Europe & Africa, America, Asia & Oceania) according to the country flag you have selected in your profile, so make sure you have correctly completed your profile. THE PRIZES Last but not least, the winners will be rewarded with the following prizes: A MYSTERY prize donated once again by our good friend thieves_like_us! A supposedly "very rare, Nintendo licensed" product that is very hard to get hold of. 1st Prize: A brand new Nintendo Wii with an extra nunchuk and wiimote, and any two games! 2nd Prize: A brand new Nintendo DS Lite with any two games! 3rd Prize: A brand new GBA SP/Micro with any two GBA games! Our affiliates helped us finance these awesome prizes. We send our utmost thanks to all three! Â Â Â ConsoleSource, KickGaming and TwoSlots. All three of them are excellent and reliable shops; so if you're looking to help GBAtemp, the best way is to buy from them! In the name of the GBAtemp Team, I would like to thank all of you for participating and also our affiliate for their constant support. Have fun!
