The Catan Tournament is played on Sunday 10am until 4pm. Players must be registered by 9am in order to play. If you are unfamiliar with the game, you can still compete as Lexicon offers several opportunities over the weekend to learn Catan in our Learn-to-Play room.
Cost is $10 per person and limited to the first 48 players.
The Tournament is a multi-round format. Players will compete in three rounds at tables of three or four players depending on number of attendees. They will receive an overall score by adding up their totals from those three rounds. Players who were winners in a round will also receive a bonus point. Additionally, any players who are winners of our Regional Qualifiers leading up to Lexicon will have their lowest score replaced with a 10.
The top 16 players will then compete in a double elimination mini-tournament, four to a table. The four winners in the first round will compete against each other in the second round. The Winner of that round will be the overall Tournament Champion and win the all expense paid trip to GenCon. The other three players at the final table will be ranked 2-4 based on their final score. The 12 players eliminated in the first round will be ranked 5-16 based on their final points in those games. In both cases, ties will be broken by their overall score in the initial three rounds with further ties broken by highest individual scores in those games. All top 16 players will receive a prize.
Open to US Citizens, 18 years of age and older (prior to GenCon, Aug 4-7, 2016).
The winner of this Catan Qualifier tournament receives a 4-day badge to GenCon, half a hotel room (shared with another qualifying winner), and a seat in the Catan National Championship Tournament on Saturday, August 6th, 2016. Travel assistance is provided by the host of the qualifier tournament.
If the winner is unable to attend GenCon, the prize will then be awarded to the first runner-up of the tournament.
All participants will receive special Catan-themed items for participating in a National Championship Qualifier.
