*** SPECIAL NOTE: BARRING UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, IE: HARDWOOD BOOTS, CASES SERVER PROBLEMS, ETC., AS A COURTESY TO OUR MEMBERS AND TO SHOW RESPECT TO THOSE PLAYERS WHO REGISGERED EARLY FOR THE TOURNAMENT, OUR HOSTS WILL CLOSE NO LATER THAN 10 MINS AFTER THE POSTED START TIME. IF YOU ARE JOINING A PARDS TOURNAMENT AND ARE NOT IN THE ROOM WHEN IT HAS STARTED,
**DO NOT EXPECT TO BE PAIRED UP** FOR THE TOURNAMENT. ***

(1a)DO NOT CREATE LEAGUE NAMES OR TEAM NAMES WHICH MIGHT BE CONSIDERED PROFANE, OFFENSIVE, RACIST NAMES OR SLURS, SWEAR WORDS, LEWD ANATOMICAL REFERENCES SEXUALLY EXPLICIT OR HOMONYMS OF THESE WORDS. DO NOT USE COMBINATRIONS OF WORDS THAT PRODUCE AN OFFENSIVE RESULT (e.g. DUMBAZ, SEX LUVA, ETC) SHOULD A LEAGUE NAME OR TEAM NAME BE MADE WHICH THE HOSTING TD OR ANOTHER ADMIN CONSIDERS TO BE OFFEENSIVE, YOU YOU WILL BE ASKED TO CHANGE IT OR YOUR TEAM WILL BE REMOVED UNTIL YOU REMAKE THE TEAM WITH A NAME THAT IS NOT CONSIDERED TO BE OFFENSIVE. ***THERE WILL BE NO DISUCSSION ON THIS SUBJECT IN THE LOBBY AND IT IS THE STAFFS FINAL DECISION AS TO WHETHER A NAME IS OFFENSIVE AMD SHOULD BE CHANGED OR THE TEAM NAME REMADE.

(2). IF YOU ARE IN ANOTHER TOURNAMENT ROOM AND ARE NOT IN OUR LOBBY WHEN A TOURNAMENT HAS CLOSED AND HAS ALREADY BEGUN, YOU MAY POSSIBLY BE DQ'ED FROM THE FIRST ROUND OR THE ENTIRE TOURNAMENT. HOSTING TD DECISIONS ARE FINAL. A SUB WILL BE LOOKED FOR IMMEDIATELY TO TAKE YOUR PLACE. PLEASE BE ON TIME AND DO NOT ARRIVE LATE AND HOLD UP A TOURNAMENT AS THIS IS VERY DISRESPECTFUL TO THE HOST OF THE TOUNAMENT AND OUR MEMBERS !!!
**SPECIAL EXCEPTION: IF A PLAYER IS TIED UP IN THE PREVIOUS AMS TOURNAMENT WHEN THEIR TABLE HAS BEEN CALLED FOR THE NEXT PARD EVENT A SUB WILL BE APPOINTED IMMEDIATELY FOR THEM SO THAT THE TOURNAMENT IS NOT DELAYED. A SUB MAY BE SOMEONE WHO HAS A BYE FOR THAT ROUND OF THE TOURNAMENT AND THE PLAYER WILL BE ALLOWED TO JOIN THE MATCH AS SOON AS THEY HAVE COMPLETED THEIR GAME.

(3). IF YOU NEED A BRB IN BETWEEN A GAME JUST SAY "BRB". YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WAIT FOR AN 'OKAY' ... FOR A BRB IN BETWEEN GAMES. HOWEVER PLEASE BE AWARE THAT A 5 MINS TIMER STARTS SOON AS THE HOST CALLS YOUR TABLE. IF YOU NEED A BRB AFTER YOUR MATCH HAS ALREADY BEGUN AND YOU HAVE JOINED YOUR TABLE, AS A COURTESTY TO THE HOST, PLEASE CONTACT THEM IMMEDIATELY IN THE LOBBY TO LET THEM KNOW YOU NEED A "BRB" . YOU WILL GET 5 MINS AND THE TIMER STARTS SOON AS SOON AS YOU LEAVE THE TABLE. SHOULD YOU NEED MORE TIME THAN 5 MIN PLEASE ASK FOR A SUB SO THAT THE TOURNAMENT IS NOT DELAYED ANY FURTHER.

(4). PLEASE DO NOT SET OR JOIN A TABLE UNTIL THE HOST HAS ASKED YOU TO DO SO IN THE LOBBY. ONCE CALLED YOU HAVE 3 MINS TO SET OR JOIN THE TABLE AND AFTER THAT TIME A SUB WILL BE APPOINTED TO TAKE YOUR PLACE. SUBS ARE APPOINTED FOR PARD EVENTS ONLY. ONCE A SUB HAS JOINED A TABLE THEY WILL CONTINUE THE WHOLE (GAME/ROUND) UNLESS THEY WANT OUT. PLAYERS WHO HAVE TIMED OUT DO NOT HAVE A SAY IN THIS MATTER, SO PLEASE WHEN YOU JOIN A TOURNAMENT BE READY TO PLAY. SINGLE PLAYER TOURNEYS IF YOU DO NOT SET OR JOIN A TABLE WHEN CALLED, AFTER 3 MINUTES YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

(5). BOOT RULE: 5-5-0. AFTER THE 3RD BOOT A PERMANENT SUB WILL BE APPOINTED FOR THAT ROUND. IF YOU COME BACK YOU MAY REJOIN THE NEXT ROUND IF YOUR TEAM ADVANCES.

(6). TABLE TALK OF COURSE ISN'T ALLOWED AND WILL GET YOU DQ'D FROM THE TOURNAMENT. IF YOU'RE NOT SURE IF IT'S CONSIDERED "TT" BEST THING TO DO IS JUST NOT SAY IT. IF YOU ARE CAUGHT CHEATING, CHEATING OF ANY SORT, YOU WILL BE DQ' D FROM THE TOURNAMENT AND THE END RESULT OF YOUR CHEATING WILL BE YOU BEING (BOXED/BANNED) FROM THE LEAGUE. ***FOOMING: FOOMS ARE ALLOWED BETWEEN HANDS ONLY AND ARE NOT ALLOWED DURING HANDS IN PLAY AS THIS COULD BE CONSIDERED CHEATING.

(7). ONLY ONE SUB PER TEAM IS PERMITTED IN PARTNERS TOURNAMENTS AND NO TEAM CONTAINING 2 SUBS WILL BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE, AND YES SUBS ARE ALLOWED IN FINALS. NO SUBS ARE PERMITTED FOR SINGLES OR CUT TOURNAMENT EVENTS.

(8). NO ONE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES IS ALLOWED TO KICK A PLAYER FROM A TABLE. IF THERES A PROBLEM YOU ARE TO IMMEDIATELY CALL THE HOSTING TD OR ANOTHER STAFF MEMBER TO THE TABLE. IF IT'S DETERMINED THAT YOU KICKED A PLAYER FROM THE TABLE THE END RESULT MAY BE YOUR "DQ" FROM THE TOURNAMENT.

(9). YOU MUST SHOW RESPECT TO OUR HOSTS AND MEMBERS AT ALL TIMES BOTH IN OUR LOBBY AND AT OUR TABLES. THOSE WHO DO NOT ABIDE BY THIS RULE WILL BE WARNED BY THE HOSTING TD OR ANOTHER STAFF MEMBER TO IMMEDIATELY STOP THE BEHAVIOR AND IF IT CONTINUES YOU WILL BE SILENCED, REPORTS CAN BE FILED WITH HARDWOOD, AND YOU CAN POSSIBLY BE "DQ' D" FROM THE TOURNAMENT AND THE END RESULT POSSIBLY CAN BE YOUR BEING BOXED OR KICKED FROM THE LEAGUE.

(10). USING AUTO BUTTON AND NOT PLAYING YOUR HAND WILL RESULT IN DQ IF CAUGHT AND POSSIBLY BOXING. DON'T DISRESPECT OUR HOST OR OUR MEMBERS BY DOING THIS AND DELAYING THE TOURNAMENT. PLEASE JUST ASK FOR A SUB IF YOU NEED TO GO. IF ACCUSED OF AUTO PLAY AND THE HOST SHOWS UP AT YOUR TABLE YOU WILL BE ASKED IF YOU ARE THERE OR IF THERE'S A PROBLEM ONLY TWICE. IF NO REPLY BACK TO THE HOST QUESTIONS YOU WILL BE KICKED FROM TABLE IMMEDIATLY, SO PLZ IMMEDIATELY RESPOND WHEN A HOST GOES IN AND ASKS IF YOU ARE THERE.

(11). PROFANE, OFFENSIVE, RACIST NAMES OR SLURS, SWEAR WORDS, LEWD ANATOMICAL REFERENCES, SEXUALLY EXPLICIT OR FOUL LANGUAGE OF ANY KIND IS NOT ALLOWED IN OUR LOBBY OR AT THE GAME TABLES. USE OF SUCH LANGUAGE WILL RESULT IN A WARNING FROM THE HOSTING TD OR ANOTHER STAFF MEMBER TO STOP AND IF YOU DO NOT HEED THE WARNING YOU WILL BE SILENCED AND A REPORT CAN BE FILED REPORTING THE INCIDENT TO HARDWOOD. USE OF THE 'F' WORD WILL GET YOU AN AUTOMATIC SILENCE OF 60 MINUTES WITH NO WARNING ISSUED.

(12). NO ACCUSATIONS OF OPPONENTS CHEATING WILL BE TOLLERATED IN OUR LOBBY OR AT THE GAME TABLES. IF THERE IS A QUESTION ABOUT THIS PLEASE ASK THE TD TO MEET YOU AT THE TABLE OR CONTACT THEM ON IM. THE HOSTING TD WILL LOOK OVER THE ISSUE(S) OR HAND(S) AND WHEN APPLICABLE TURN IT OVER TO AN ADMIN TO HANDLE IT AND RENDER A DECISION.

(13) UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES MAY ANYONE IN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD BE ALLOWED TO PARTNER AS A TEAM. IF THIS IS FOUND THAT THIS IS THE CIRCUMSTANCE THIS TEAM WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY DISQUALIFIED FROM PARTIPATION IN THE TOURNAMENT.

(14). SPECIAL EVENT TOURNAMENTS SUCH AS: TOC, KING OR QUEEN OF THE HILL, STAFF AND MEMBER APPRECIATION TOURNEYS, MONTHLY BIRTHDAY TOURNEYS, BOS, OR ANY OTHER SPECIAL EVENT TOURNAMENT HOSTED BY ONE OF OUR HOSTS, ARE HOSTED BY OUR HOSTS AT THEIR PLEASURE AND SPECIFIC RULES PERTAINING TO THESE TOURNEYS WILL BE POSTED ON THE TOURNAMENT PAGE ITSELF.


**OUR LEAGUE'S GOAL: WE JUST WANT EVERYONE TO BE ABLE TO ENJOY THEMSELVES WHILE HERE IN AMS!!! WE WANT TO PROVIDE A DRAMA FREE FUN PLACE WHERE WE ALL CAN MEET TOGETHER, DEVELOP ONLINE FRIENDSHIPS AND ENJOY THE GAME OF SPADES. AS HOSTS AND STAFF MEMBERS WE ARE BOUND TO FOLLOW THE ABOVE LEAGUE RULES AND POLICIES WHEN WE COMPETE AT TABLES AND LIKEWISE WE PROMISE TO TRY TO ENFORCE THESE RULES FAIRLY WHEN WE ARE HOSTING TOURNAMENTS FOR OUR MEMBERS. OUR MAIN GOAL AS HOSTS WILL ALWAYS BE TO TRY TO BE FAIR, A LITTLE LENIENT AND NOT TOO PUSHY. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE HOSTING TD IN CHARGE OF THE TOURNAMENT DECISIONS WILL PREVAIL AND ARE FINAL. HOWEVER, THE HOSTING TD'S DECISIONS CAN BE OVERTURNED AT THEIR DISCRESION CONSIDERING SUCH SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES AS PLAYER OR HARDWOOD BOOTS, ETC .


THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT OF ALL AMERICAN SPADES AND OUR TOURNAMENTS.
