Format

 

4 person groups will play world cup style to determine seeding into a single elimination tournament. The semi final losers will play for 3rd/4th place.

The amount of people to advance to the tournament and/or available systems will determine

 

 

Rules

 

  • Team Selection & Coin Toss: A manual coin-flip will precede each game. The coin-flip winner will choose the matchup (i.e. the two teams). The coin-flip loser then selects either (a) one of the two teams or (b) his preferred controller. If the coin-flip loser selects his preferred controller, the coin-flip winner selects a team first.
  • “One Matchup Once” Rule: The coin-flip winner can only select a particular matchup once throughout the entire tournament. For instance, if Player A wins the toss and selects Packers-Browns, Player A cannot call that exact matchup for the rest of the tournament. Player B, however, is free to select that matchup later in the tournament.
  • Customizing Playbooks and Lineup Changes: Customizing playbooks is permissible. 
  • WR or TE at RB: A WR/TE cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. You can insert a WR or TE into a RB slot for lead blocking purposes, but he cannot carry the football. To further clarify, players such as Ernest Givins, Ricky Sanders, and Andre Rison cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse.
  • Ties: Although ties are permitted in the tournament’s “group play” portion, such are not permitted in the single-elimination portion of the tournament. If a game ends in a tie after overtime, a new game will begin, and the first player to score in the new game is the winner.
  • Lurching: Lurching is prohibited. If you want to rush with a DL, you must either go outside the offensive tackle or “popcorn” someone on the offensive line. You cannot simply go around your blocker and dive. Note that this rule does not apply to LBs.
  • Nintendo Malfunctions: If there is an equipment failure in the first half, games will be replayed from the start. If equipment malfunctions in the 2nd half, only the second half is replayed. In that event, the scores from each half are added together to obtain a final score. If the game was uncompetitive or the equipment malfunctioned due to human error, the tourney organizers reserve the right to declare a winner without replaying any portion of the game.
  • Tournament Disputes: Matt Knobbe is the tournament referee. He will decide all disputes unless he is a player in the game. If he is a player in the disputed game, Travis Reinsch will resolve the dispute.

Sorry, registration part wasn't showing up on my work computer, just signed up on my phone. To be fair though, I think past champs shouldn't have to worry themselves with the arduous task of filling out a registration form. And we should get free drinks. And a puppy.

List updated as of last night

 

Looks like I have a Fargo participant and your football team is playing at a sub-Pelini level @Leonardite @Bob Nelson @DrFrolf

No better time to descend upon Lincoln.

 Sub-Pelini level...so cruel, yet so accurate.

the trophy luke and his dad made back in 2015 is sweet.  I've showed that to a few people/family and everybody says it's cool.  somehow they weighted it (sand?), so part of the effect is to pick it up and behold it.

A special treat this year....in lieu of constructing a crappy trophy I am instead purchasing one!

I'll post pictures when it arrives.

Somehow I don't feel as honored as I did last year when I earned said "crappy" trophy.

If you want to get in some practice time before the tourney, there will be a meetup Friday Night.  I'll send out an email to registrants closer to that date.

Where will that be? And do I need to bring my own controller?
