Maximum Participants: 14
Tourney Format (See attached PDF file for complete rules):
- Participants will draw poker chips labeled 1-14 for first round draft order. Each player will draft at least 2 teams.
- The number of draft rounds will depend on the number of participants (4 rounds for 6-7 players, 3 rounds for 8-9 players, and 2 rounds for 10-14 players).
- After the 1st round of the draft, players will draft from the remaining teams in reverse order in the 2nd round (i.e. 14th pick in Rd 1 picks 1st in Rd 2).
- The teams selected in each round will play against each other in a single elimination bracket based on seeding (1st pick plays against 2nd pick, etc.)
- First round byes (if needed) will be given to the lowest draft seed(s) in each bracket.
- The lower seed in each matchup will have choice of their preferred controller (side).
- The winning team in each matchup will have the option to keep their team or "steal" their opponent's team.
- When taking control of an opponent's team after a victory, both competitors retain their original draft seeding for future matchups.
- When a player loses with their teams in all brackets, they are officially eliminated from the tournament.
- If the same player wins out on all brackets, they are crowned tournament champion.
- If there are different champions for each bracket, the Pro Bowl will be played for the title.
- A coin toss will be held and the winner of the coin toss can choose their team or controller.
- In the event of a Pro Bowl Championship game, original rosters will be used but lineup and playbook changes will be allowed.
Buy-in: $5 cash at the door (Proceeds will be donated to charity)
