There is a maximum of 6 players on a team; up to four members may play at once. We recommend no more than four members on a team, so that students may play the maximum number of rounds.

Subsequent teams (up to an additional two, for five total) from the same school will be placed on the wait list.

Is there restricted eligibility for this event? To clarify: Do you want just novices or are other players allowed to play?

If there are enough staffers, would it be possible to expand the field to 24 to accommodate the additional teams?

Will cameras be required for this tournament? If so, is this competition also a qualifier for PACE NSC?
