Alan says… “This will be the 3rd annual Co:Glasgow event, and is the last event before the finals in the FOCAL calendar!
The event will take place, as always, upstairs in the Crow’s Nest at The Raven in Glasgow. There will be a staffed bar open throughout the event and we will play some COUNTDOWN!!!
If you would like to enter the event please follow this link and fill out the entry form:
The Facebook event can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1813841235537567/
On the Saturday, there is a buffet lunch built in to your entry fee. (Payment can be made on the day, however it would be great if you could fill out the form to let me know you’ll be attending.)
So the format for Co:Glasgow (Saturday):
It will be 3 rounds of two 9-round games each, in tables of 3. Each round you will play two games and host one. The tables will be entirely randomly drawn on the morning of the event. The two top players on the leaderboard after 3 rounds will play in the final. The leaderboard will be ranked by wins, then points scored, if there’s a tie it will be decided by head to head match, then points differential if it comes to that.
The Format for Co:GlasgowOnThen (Sunday):
We will be running it in the weakest link format again as it seemed popular from last year and had many exciting moments!
Rounds 1 and 2 will be LLNLLNLLN
Rounds 3 and 4 onwards will be LLLNLLLN
Rounds 5 onwards will be LLLLN
Then the two lowest scores each round will go head to head in a crucial conundrum, the loser being eliminated. If there is a tie for 2nd last then everyone tied will compete in conundrums, the winners going through until one is eliminated.
Co:Glasgow has been great fun on the two occasions I have run it. We have the venue on the Saturday for the full day and night time as well, so I can arrange some sort of activity on the Saturday night if we get the interest, like a quiz.”
