Description

Welcome to Mindbug Online Play This will be an open tournament. The goal is to allow people from all time zones and availabilities to attend. The first round will be a swiss style tournament with 3 rounds each. In each round players will play a best of 5 (b05). The top (4?) players will be chosen for a single elimination playoff. Rules: 1. Once your opponent is announced you will have 48 hours to contact and arrange a time to play. The winner will be expected to post the match results unless agreed the losing player has agreed to report a loss. Please post-match results as soon as possible following the match. 2. Players may choose to play their matches on Tabletop Simulator or Tabletopia (free) however the standard Mindbug First Contact deck must be used using the original rules. 3. Players are required to think through their actions carefully. If a card is played the action may only be taken back on mutual agreement of both parties. If a card is played in a scenario where the player misunderstood a rule, mutual agreement is still required. Ultimately, a card played remains in play and can not be changed unless both players agree on it. 4. For players using Tabletop Simulator the recommended mod for Tabletop Simulator is: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2444234177

Match Support and FAQ 1. I have not been able to contact my opponent or, we have not been able to organize a time to play. Please keep records of all communication as the match will be considered a draw unless you can prove your opponent was suitably unavailable. Cases will be determined on a case-by-case basis please contact TheGreenLing#0786 on Discord with your proof.

  1. My opponent and I have a disagreement about who won after the match has already finished. It is hoped that players will be honest about match wins and losses however, it is difficult for tournament organizers to intervene without evidence or proof. Players may wish to take screenshots to track game wins/losses or use other tracking tools to prevent disagreement.

  2. My opponent wants to play on Tabletopia, but I want to play on Tabletop Simulator. The match will be played on Tabletopia. As Tabletopia is a free option, players will be expected to use this platform as it is available to all players.

  3. I played a card and my opponent mindbugged it can I take it back? No, not unless your opponent agrees. Bluffing is a large part of mind bug and thus taking back an action effects the game state.

  4. I played a Kangasaurus Rex, expecting to destroy my opponent's board of 4 attack creatures, except I forgot he had a Shield Bug in play. I didn't realize it wouldn't do what I thought, can I take it back? This is an example of a misunderstood rule. As with question 4, the action may only be taken back if the opponent agrees.
