Hi back at ya DS. You were missed and we hope you make it next year. I want to run a very special event during the flex tournament next year -- a "Senior Tournament" for mature Scapers. To participate, you will have to be AARP eligible. For those of you who don't know what AARP is, you are definitely not eligible. There should be somewhere between 6 to 8 of us.

We will have special rules. If you forget to do something, no problem as long as board state has not really changed. We can use large print cards. The tournament will start fairly early as most of us are up early and don't stay up too late. If you need to take a bathroom break or get more coffee (which of course leads to more bathroom breaks) no problem. We will also extend time for the games so we can reminisce about the "good old days". Of course, we will need a "senior discount" for our tickets. There will be special prizes for those of us who embarrass our children. (This post may earn me a prize.)

I ran this idea by some of the more mature players this year, and there was serious interest. Ideas to create the best, most prestigious tournament are welcome.
Best. Thing. Ever.

Yeah, great turnout for Main Event.

As for partial vs full, partial is by far better, and full doesn't really help in major tourneys like GenCon anymore (seeing as we no longer keep track of points from round to round, points are only used to determine a winner if the game goes to time).

Re: Gencon 2018 Results

I think the main argument for full card is just "that's what the rulebook says", which... I mean, I get it. But the very same section says that you play to a round limit, not a time limit, and we don't do that. I think deviating from the rulebook on how to score a game that's cut short in a way that deviates from the rules is fairly reasonable.

That said, I don't honestly care that the scoring rules are kind of erratic. The only thing that bothers me is partial card scoring for unique squads, because that actually changes the way people play when the time limit is approaching in a way that's cheesy and lame.

Re: Gencon 2018 Results

I could be wrong, but I've long thought that the justification for full card scoring is that it's easier to calculate. Less math between rounds, when time is very precious to the tournament directors. Especially in a big tournament.

Mind you, I would still prefer partial card scoring, but nobody asked me.

Re: Gencon 2018 Results

So, wait, everyone's in agreement that partial is just way better? First I got (helped get) the reverse rounds schedule changed for main event, so now let me start a petition to change official scoring to partial card. Naturally, this gets my aye.

Itíd be my yes. Iíve only been to GC once but Iíve played tourneys with Full card scoring and it sucks in endgames when the game is close.
