INSTRUCTIONS FOR PLAY
• Each match, players can decide which platform to use for play (Grid Gammon [the most preferred platform], Safe Harbor or Backgammon Galaxy). However, if a platform cannot be agreed to, then the match must be played on BackgammonGalaxy.com.
• All communications to and from the Director should be via WhatsApp (match wins, problems, etc.). A Group WhatsApp will be created prior to 7:00pm MDT.
• All payments will be made through Venmo (payments must be made prior to tournament start), #Americanjam or 3o3-356-3679.
• Registration closes at 6:45pm MDT. Matches will be posted (including near real-time updates) and announced at 7:00pm MDT.
• Once the bracket is posted, contact your opponent DIRECTLY (phone or text). The number can be retrieved from the newly created Group in the WhatsApp application.
• Please DO NOT use the main Group WhatsApp for communication with your opponent, as there is way too much chatter. It should ONLY be used for communication with the Director.
• The Top player listed for the matches will set up the match on the agreed to platform. If using Backgammon Galaxy, be sure to select Clock Casual (15s +3m) to provide ample time should a problem occur.
• The Bottom player listed will Join the newly created match.
• The WINNER is responsible for reporting the match result, again using the main Group WhatsApp (3o3-356-3679). Once reported, your new match will be posted shortly thereafter. The match can begin once both players are available and the platform is determined.
• Should you lose in the Main bracket, you will have a second chance to cash in the Consolation bracket. All match lengths are 5 points in the Consolation.
• All winners will be paid via Venmo immediately following the completion of the tournament:
