Pandemic Survival Casual Tournament
**THIS WILL NOT BE A QUALIFIER FOR THE 2020 SEASON**

Pandemic Survival is an “extreme” version of Pandemic where teams of two will face each other in an epic battle to save the world. Their goal: to be the first team to find all four cures, or to be the last team still alive at the end of the game. In this tournament-style version of the game, all teams will face the same problems: their player cards will all be placed in the same order before the game; the infected cities are the same for everyone; the Epidemics strike at the same time for all teams; every team has the same role cards. The only difference is the decisions they will make! Their strategic choices will lead each team in different directions, and one strategy will pay off in the end and lead to victory.

Euphoria
You find yourself in a dystopian cityscape with a few workers at your disposal to make your mark on the world. Like most people in dystopian fiction, your workers are oblivious to their situation. This world is all they've ever known, and you may use them at your whim.

Euphoria is a worker-placement game with dice to represent your workers. As a sort of middle manager in the dystopian regime, your eyes are open to the harsh realities of your world, and your primary goal is to gain as much influence as you can as fast as you can. In order to do this, you must walk a fine line where your underlings are concerned; they must have enough knowledge to be useful, but not so much that they grow disaffected and desert your cause. Use your workers to get resources and commodities, discover artifacts for a long-gone era, and forge alliances with the various factions that populate this world. What are you willing to sacrifice to build a better dystopia?

Munchkin Tournament
This tournament features fabulous loot that you can take home with you, where everyone is working from the same deck of cards, and is available to both newcomers as well as veteren dungeon delvers. The thing is, there is an additional rule that we will be using. If you have played the Munchkin game in the past, you will know of the two main phases. Kicking down the door and looting the room. But, in a tournament setting, there is a phase before kicking down the door. Listening at the door. "At the start of your turn, draw a face-down Door card, which you may play or not. If you Loot the Room, draw a face-down treasure, not a door."
 
In addition, we will also be operating under the "Plus-One" rule set in regards to promotional items. This rule is to insure that no player has a huge advantage over another player in regards to the use of bookmarks, promotional cards, T-Shirts, etc. And when we say etc, long time players will know that pretty much any munchkin product that is not a game has an effect on the game. The "Plus-One" rule is, as stated: "Players must reveal all promotional items at the start of the game. Players are limited to a total number of items equal to the least held number at their table, plus one." The exceptions to this rule is: The official smartphone Munchkin Level Counter, a Single Munchkin Sherpa or Munchkin Zombies Sherpa and a championship certificate signed by Steve Jackson or Andrew Hackard, embossed with the SJ Games logo are ALWAYS allowed, and the Official Munchkin Cthulhu Bookmark of Udder Ridiculousness is NEVER allowed.


This is a casual tournament for in-house prizes.

Chromino Tournament
Chromino – short for "chromatic domino" – challenges players to empty their hand of chromino tiles
first. Each such tile has three colors on it laid out in a 1x3 row. At the start of the game, each player
takes a hand of eight chrominoes. Each turn, a player either places a chromino from their hand onto the
table – with that chromino tile matching at least two colors on adjacent tiles already on the table – or
else they draw a new chromino tile from the stock, playing this tile if possible and keeping it otherwise.
The first player to empty their hand wins.

This tournament is played over 3 rounds; then a final round with the Top 4.

Winner gets a copy of Chromino.

The players are in the position of determining how they want to allocate their workers throughout the year. Every season is different on a vineyard, so the workers have different tasks they can take care of in the summer and winter. There is competition over those tasks, and often the first worker to get to the
job has an advantage over subsequent workers.
