Rules

League

The 2013 Atlanta Spring Power Grid League will consist of eight sessions of play, held on alternate Monday nights beginning April 22 and ending July 29.

Cost

The cost to participate is $10 per player at the league's start, plus $1 per player per session paid at the time of play, for a total of $18.

Prize

The grand prize is one Well Played gift certificate in the amount of $5 per registered and paid league player. Additional prizes may be awarded at the commissioner's discretion.

Structure

The league will be structured as a round-robin tournament.

Ideally each game session will consist only of four player games. In practice three and five player games will be created to accommodate the number of attending players and the number of available game sets.

The player with the best overall record at the conclusion of the last week of play will be the league champion. The best overall record is the one with the most first place finishes. If more than one player has the same number of first place finishes, second place finishes, third place finishes, total game end cities powered, and total game end Elektro will be compared, in order, to determine the winner. If more than one player is still tied after all these comparisons, those tied competitors will play an additional game of Power Grid and the grand prize will be awarded to the winner.

All currently available Power Grid sets and gameboards will be eligible for use throughout the league.

Substitutions

In the event that a player cannot be present for a weekly game, a substitute player may be designated. Once a substitute begins play, the replaced player may not participate in any games during any of that day's Ultimate Board Gaming League sessions. A registered league participant may not serve as a substitute for another player in the same league.

Fair play

Games will be played in accordance with the rules of each individual Power Grid game.

Schedule of play

Any player that does not begin play in a league game before 7:30 PM shall forfeit the session's match and be counted absent. If a game cannot be completed before the competition venue closes, the game will be considered interrupted. Tickets and end game bonuses will be scored as normal and the player in the lead shall be designated winner. Slow play with the intent of causing the match to fail to complete will be deemed unsportsmanlike conduct and will result in the offending player forfeiting the session's match.

Commissioner

The commissioner of the 2013 Atlanta Spring Power Grid League is Dave Leach. The league commissioner reserves the right to enter the league as a player and compete for the league's prize. Should any conflicts arise between the commissioner and a player during the course of normal play, preference in adjudication will be given to the player. The above notwithstanding, the decisions of the league commissioner are final.
