1. These rules are in full effect at all times.  Any violation of these rules, even after hours during the tournament, may result in disqualification and removal from the grounds.
  2. Tournament players must treat each other with respect.  No intimidating, demeaning, assaultive, or offensive behavior will be tolerated.
  3. Tournament players may not physically touch, distract, or annoy other players during the game. Obstructing the view of another player, touching the console, touching the controller or the extension of the controller of another player is not permitted.
  4. A player may not interfere with the gameplay of another player either outside of the video game or in the videogame by blocking, crashing into, or otherwise interfering in the normal game play. Referees may stop the game if a player is engaging in poor sportsmanship in order to remove the offending player and restart the game.
  5. Players may not conspire to alter the outcome of the tournament. Referees may stop a game in progress if it is believed that players are conspiring or acting in poor sportsmanship.  Referees may remove offending players and restore players who were eliminated from the tournament due to unsportsmanlike actions.
  6. A referee’s decision and judgment is final and may not be appealed.
  7. An equipment failure may be sufficient cause to restart a particular portion of the tournament. Whether the equipment failure warrants a restart is up to the referee’s discretion.  Power failures will result in a restart of that portion of the tournament.
  8. A player falsely declaring an equipment failure or making any other misrepresentation to restart a portion of the tournament will be disqualified.
  9. If a player is not in place at the correct time for the start of a portion of the tournament then that portion of the tournament will run without the player and the player will be eliminated. A referee may allow a substitute player if a portion of the tournament is about to start and the slated player is absent or disqualified.
  10. A basic sense of fair play shall govern over the tournament at all times. It is not possible to write a rule for every specific situation and, as such, the referees shall have final authority to regulate the tournament according in the spirit of good sportsmanship.

There will be three tournament stations.  There will be heats of four players at a time.  Players will be eliminated through heats and last chance heats until there are four players remaining.  The final four players will play three heats to determine the World Champion.  Scores will be 1 point for the winner, 2 points for 2nd place, 3 points for 3rd place, and 4 points for 4th place.  The lowest scoring player will be the winner.  Any in game points do not count towards the win.  Only finishing place determine winners of heats or finals.  If there are any point score ties then the player finishing best in the final heat will be the World Champion.  Trophies will be given to the top final three players.
