130Ticket to Ride - UK Nationals Qualifiers for the World Championships
- Sep 30, 2009GameCon (Game 09) will be hosting a 40 player Ticket to Ride UK Nationals qualifying event on the 17th of October. This is part of a grander qualifying "rail" to the World Championships.
The official details are:
"The UK National Ticket to Ride Championship begins with a series of regional qualifier tournaments
Each regional qualifier will consist of three rounds: A qualifying round, a semi-final round, and a final round.
The qualifying round of 3 games will include both Ticket to Ride and Ticket to Ride Europe. At the end of the qualifying round, players will be ranked and the top 8 to 12 players (depending on the number of entries) move on to the semi-final round.
In the semi-final round, each player will play 2 games of the 1910 variant. The top 2 players move on to the final round.
In the final round the 2 finalists play the original Ticket to Ride head-to-head, best 2 out of 3, to determine the winner.
The winner qualifies for the UK Championships to be held in April or May (exact date and venue to be determined). The winner also receives a gold-plated Ticket to Ride score marker.
2nd place wins a silver score marker and serves as 1st alternate to go to the UK Championships if the winner is unable to go.
3rd place wins a bronze score marker and serves as 2nd alternate to go to UK Championships if the winner is unable to go."
