New Tournament was created by Mark-McG
Been a bit of a struggle to complete the last 2 Mini-Tournaments, and I think it might be time for a change of format.

The CCA Open tournament has been quite successful, though not without problems.
The alternative might be a knock-out tournament, which halves the field each round.

What are people's thoughts on either of these proposals?

A first CCN OT would be fine, so you have both, a part with a few games of all and the ohter part with KO games :)

My dice are the hell!

I have to confess that I don't know the format for an open tournament. Can one of you please elaborate?

OPEN TOURNAMENT ORGANIZATION
A). This tournament consists of two phases. The first phase is a Swiss-style format of five rounds.The scenario for that round will be played twice, with sides for the first game decided by rolling a die and then alternating sides for the second game.
B). Each round will be worth three points. All 3 points will be awarded to the player that wins both games, 2 points will be awarded to the player that wins one game and wins the total banner count for both games, 1.5 points will be awarded to the player that wins one game and ties in banner count, 1 point will be awarded to the player that wins one game and loses the banner count, no points awarded if both games are lost. After each round, positions on the Ladder will be adjusted in descending order by points, and further sorted by banners won, banners lost, and blocks lost.
C). At the end of five rounds, the players in the top each positions will move on to Phase II and be seeded according to position.
D). The second phase is an 8-player single elimination bracket. The scenario for each round will be played twice, with sides for the first game decided by rolling a die and then alternating sides for the second game. The player with the most banners will move on to the next round, ties broken by lowest Blocks Lost count. In the event of a tie still existing, the winner of a one game play-off, scenario decided by the tournament referee and sides determined by rolling a die, will advance to the next round or win the tournament if it is the final round.

For a first try I would go with CCA format. Seems prooved and working so as Bayernkini suggests, I would opt for this.

so the concensus seems to be an Open Tournament.
I'd ask all interested players to add their names in response here, and I'll advertise it more widely, and setup the tournament in August.
