All teams must be composed of students from the same school.

After the tournament, we'll be running Words and Objects, written by James Malouf and myself with help from Will Nediger. Due to the incomplete nature of the set (with only 3 packets fully written as of now), we're be using this as an initial playtesting as much as the first official mirror. It'll be $5 to play. Depending on interest in the event, the format will either be 1) a shoot-out or 2) two games in separate seeded pools --> rebracket for a finals / consolation match.
