GENERAL RULES OF ALL GINTASTIC

TOURNAMENT GAMES

 

 

THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF PLAYING IN A GINTASTIC TOURNAMENT

IS TO HAVE FUN AND NOT LET ANY DRAMA ENTER THE LOBBY

 

HAVING FUN, ALSO INCLUDES BEING COURTEOUS TO OTHERS, SO THAT OUR

TOURNAMENTS CAN BE AS ENJOYABLE AS POSSIBLE FOR EVERYONE

 

SAYING GG (GOOD GAME), NH (NICE HAND), GLNR (GOOD LUCK NEXT ROUND)

ETC., GOES A LONG WAY IN MAKING YOUR TOURNAMENT EXPERIENCE MORE ENJOYABLE

 

 

BEFORE THE START OF TOURNAMENT PLAY:

 

PLEASE READ GAME RULES PRIOR TO EACH TOURNEY


COMPLETE RULES WILL BE FOUND ON THE TOURNEY PAGES

 

AN ABBREVIATED VERSION OF THE GAME RULES WILL BE RUN IN THE LOBBY

 

ALL TOURNEYS SHOULD START ON TIME, SO PLEASE JUMP EARLY

 

PLEASE BE IN THE LOBBY AT LEAST 5 MINUTES BEFORE TOURNEY

 

YOU MAY JOIN AS MANY TOURNAMENTS AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER IT IS 

UP TO YOU TO REMOVE YOURSELF FROM AN UPCOMING TOURNAMENT, OR

ASK THE HOST TO REMOVE YOU TO AVOID BEING

PLACED ON A TIMER, AND POSSIBLY BEING DISQUALIFIED

 

 

TOURNAMENT PLAY:

 

WATCHING A GAME IS NOT ALLOWED, EXCEPT DURING TEAMS TOURNEY'S AND ONLY THEN IF YOU ARE IN THE MATCH

 

ALLOW WATCHERS IS CHECKED ONLY FOR THE HOST OF YOUR TOURNAMENT

 

PLEASE CHECK TO MAKE SURE THE TABLE IS SET CORRECTLY

 

THERE WILL BE NO RESETTING ONCE THERE IS A SCORE, SO THE REMAINDER WOULD HAVE TO BE HAND SCORED

 

TOURNAMENT EXTENSIONS:

 

IN GAMES TO 100 POINTS, THERE ARE 3 EXTENSIONS ALLOWED

ON THE 45 SEC TIMER. A 4TH EXTENSION IS A DQ

REPORT TO HOST LIKE THIS:

 1 EXT, 2 EXT, 3 EXT

 

IN GAMES TO 50 POINTS, THERE ARE 2 EXTENSIONS ALLOWED

IF A PLAYER IS AT A TABLE,  IN ANOTHER GAME OR HAVE ALREADY BEEN PLACED ON

A 5 MINUTE TIMER DURING THE TOUR, WHEN THEIR MATCH IS CALLED

THEY HAVE 3 MINUTES TO GET TO THEIR TABLE OR THEY WILL BE  DISQUALIFIED

 

BE SURE TO LET HOST KNOW ABOUT MISSING PLAYERS SO 

THEY CAN BE PLACED ON THE HOSTS TIMER

REPORT TO HOST LIKE THIS:  

 PLAYER-NAME / MISSING 

 

FOR FAST TRACK, THERE IS NO TIMER, ONLY ELIMINATION

FROM THAT PARTICULAR TOURNEY 

 

 

***** MEMBERS WHO CONSISTENTLY ABUSE TIMERS

WILL RECEIVE ONE WARNING FROM ADMIN

IF THE PERSON CONTINUES TO ABUSE THE TIMER

THEY WILL RECEIVE ONLY 3 MINUTE TIMERS ON GAMES TO 100.

IF THEY CONTINUE TO ABUSE THE 3 MINUTE TIMER THE MEMBER

TOURNAMENT "MONKEYS"

THE "MONKEY" SCREAM AND THE HAND WILL BE CANCELLED

 

IF THERE ARE 4 "MONKEYS" IN ONE MATCH, HIGHEST SCORE WINS*

REPORT TO HOST LIKE THIS: 

1 MONKEY, 2 MONKEY, 3 MONKEY, 4 MONKEY

 

TABLE TIMERS:

"1ST TO GIN WINS"

 

REPORTING MATCHES:

 

BOTH WINNER AND NON-WINNER PLEASE REPORT

IN THE LOBBY WHEN MATCH IS OVER

REPORT TO HOST LIKE THIS:  

WINNER / NON-WINNER

 

INSTANT WINS WITH REQUIRED SETS/RUNS OR SPECIAL DISCARD:

 

FOR ALL GAMES THAT HAVE A FINAL DISCARD AUTO-WIN OR A REQUIRED

SET/RUN FOR AN AUTO-WIN, THE PLAYER GINNING OR KNOCKING FOR THE

AUTO-WIN (DEPENDING ON THE GAME) "SHOULD" BE COURTEOUS

AND DECLARE THEY HAVE THE AUTO-WIN.  

 

 

*** PLEASE NOTE: THE REQUIREMENT TO NOTIFY YOUR OPPONENT OF AN

AUTO-WIN  IS A "COURTESY" ONLY, AS BOTH PLAYERS SHOULD BE WATCHING

THE CARDS BEING PLAYED.

 

 

ALL DECISIONS MADE BY YOUR HOST ARE FINAL

 

HAVE FUN AND GOOD LUCK IN

 

YOUR LEAGUE ~ GINTASTIC!
