Tournaments

 

The following tournaments will be running this year at KantCon. Sign up for these events in Warhorn.

The 2019 Southern Regional Diamonds Championship

Friday 6PM - 9PM

16 players

This Stronghold game by Mike Fitzgerald is a trick-taking card game in which players collect Diamonds - not cards bearing that suit, mind you, but rather actual "Diamond Crystals". What makes the game of Diamonds different from other trick-taking card games is that when you cannot follow suit you get a "Suit Action" based on what suit you do play. Suit Actions are also taken by the winner of each trick, as well as at the end of a full Round of play. Whoever has the most points in Diamond Crystals at the end of the game wins!

 

The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, a free badge for Gen Con 2019, free crash space for 3 nights (with up to 3 other winners) at Gen Con 2019, plus a seat at the final round of the U.S. National Championship at Gen Con 2019!

The 2019 Southern Regional Coup Championship

Friday 8PM - 11PM

16 players 

You are head of a family in an Italian city-state, a city run by a weak and corrupt court. You need to manipulate, bluff and bribe your way to power. Your object is to destroy the influence of all the other families, forcing them into exile. Only one family will survive... In Coup, you want to be the last player with influence in the game, with influence being represented by face-down character cards in your playing area.

 

The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, a free badge for Gen Con 2019, free crash space for 3 nights (with up to 3 other winners) at Gen Con 2019, plus a seat at the final round of the U.S. National Championship at Gen Con 2019!

The 2019 Southern Regional Nevermore Championship

Saturday 10AM - 1PM

16 players

This game from Smirk & Dagger is a casual-style, card-drafting game in which you quickly build your hand each round, collecting cards you want and poisoning your opponent's hand by passing along cards you think they can't use. Whoever holds the most of a given suit, gains the power of that suit to attack, heal, acquire Light or Shadow magic cards and score victory points. Will you transform all your rivals into ravens - or can they regain their human form in time to score enough victory to win?

 

The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, a free badge for Gen Con 2019, free crash space for 3 nights (with up to 3 other winners) at Gen Con 2019, plus a seat at the final round of the U.S. National Championship at Gen Con 2019!

The 2019 Southern Regional Wordsy Championship

Saturday 12PM - 3PM

16 players

Wordsy is a streamlined re-implementation of Prolix, a word game from 2010. Each round, players study the 8 letters (always consonants) on the board in real time. The first player to write down a word flips a 30-second timer. That player is now the fastest player, and every other player now has 30 seconds to write down their word.

 

The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, a free badge for Gen Con 2019, free crash space for 3 nights (with up to 3 other winners) at Gen Con 2019, plus a seat at the final round of the U.S. National Championship at Gen Con 2019!

The 2019 Southern Regional ICECOOL Championship

Saturday 2PM - 5PM

16 players 

A flicking game in which each round one of the players takes the role of the Hall Monitor - his aim will be to catch each other penguin and get points for that. The others will try to run through several doors, thus gaining fish (that give them points) on their way. When either the Hall Monitor has caught each other penguin once or any of the others has gone through all 3 doors that have fish on them, the round is over. After each player is the Hall Monitor once, whoever has the most points on their fish cards wins.

 

The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, a free badge for Gen Con 2019, free crash space for 3 nights (with up to 3 other winners) at Gen Con 2019, plus a seat at the final round of the U.S. National Championship at Gen Con 2019!

The 2019 Southern Regional Pyramid Poker Championship

Saturday 4PM - 7PM

12 players

Each player then takes fifteen blocks and turns the blocks so that only they see what's on them. They take turns placing the blocks into a two-dimensional pyramid-shaped structure, again seeing only their blocks, then they take turns removing any one block from the pyramid and placing it into one of three poker hands that they're constructing. Each poker hand is competing against the one opposite it that's being built by the opponent. Once all the blocks have been removed, the player who wins two or three of the poker hands wins!

 

The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, a free badge for Gen Con 2019, free crash space for 3 nights (with up to 3 other winners) at Gen Con 2019, plus a seat at the final round of the U.S. National Championship at Gen Con 2019!

The 2019 Southern Regional New York Slice Championship

Saturday 6PM - 9PM

16 players

Each player slices pizzas into portions, giving their opponents first choice, while they take the leftovers. There are a dozen kinds of pizza to work with, from veggie to hawaiian to meat lover's, and each player decides if they want to eat or keep some of the slices, building the best collection of pizzas possible!

The 2019 Southern Regional Skull King Championship

The 2019 Southern Regional Dimension Championship

Dimension is a fast-paced, innovative puzzle game that takes place in three dimensions with 60 colorful spheres. All of the players play at the same time. Everybody tries to position the spheres on their trays to earn as many points as possible. The task cards indicate how the spheres must be placed to earn points. Complete these tasks while racing against the timer. You get a point for each sphere you use and a bonus token for using all five colors, but you lose two points for each task card you don't follow correctly. Prove to your opponents that you are the master of multi-dimensional thinking!
