New Redemption Grab Bag now includes an assortment of 500 cards from five (5) different expansion sets. Available at Cactus website.

I haven't played ROOT in awhile (which I assume is where we're basing the rules/time limits on) so could you refresh me on the time limits/special rules/etc. for this tourney?

Would it be possible to include more matches in the later rounds to determine the exact placing of the sets, and to give people who chose the weaker sets more chances to play? As in, matches between the players who lose two matches just to get a final ranking.

Can we hold off posting who wins for a bit. I'm trying to fill out a bracket now that I know who's playing who.Also, am I misunderstanding how it all works? It looks to me like if RDT and I win the first round that we'd play in the winner 2nd round and TSE & Wyatt would play in the loser 2nd round. But then if I beat RDT and Wyatt beats TSE, then wouldn't Wyatt at RDT play AGAIN in the loser 3rd round? Do we want to repeat opponents like that?

it was a lot closer than it seems.

As for repeating opponents, that is inevitable in any double elim tournament, no matter how you work it. Whether the repeat opponents are in the third round or the fifth, they will happen. You are welcome to propose an alternative bracket, but I make no promises about implementing it.

what'll happen if I can't get my game in for first round? will I auto win, or wait to play my guy?

You are welcome to propose an alternative bracket
