Format
Everyone plays three rounds at tables of three – you play two matches and host the third, using a pack of letters and numbers. By the end of the day, you’ll have played six games. Based on the standings at the end of Round 1 (number of wins, then points scored), then everyone is regrouped according to their performance. We do the same again after Round 2. At the end of Round 3, the top two players go forward to play a Grand Final match to decide the overall winner for the day.
