During round one of the Mario Kart Tournament

Each player will get to race four times against three other people. The points calculated during the race will be recorded and totaled.
The top eight players with the most points will advance to round two. In the event that there is a tie in points that would allow for more than eight players the players that are in the tie will face-off head to head with only the top players moving forward into round two.

Round two of the greatest Mario Kart Driver Tournament

The top eight players will now each race twice and the point totals per race will be the same as in round one. The top four players will advance to round three were champion will be crowned. In the event that there is a tie that would see more than four players advance to the final round, we would use the same rules that applied in round one to determine who will move forward.

Round three – time to crown a champion!

This is it, the grand finale. It’s time to crown a champion and it’s only gonna take one race to do it. The players have battled through the field to get to this point and now the final race will determine who is the best Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Driver in the age 8 to 14 class.

Play RISK in Edmonton

Where To Play RISK in Edmonton

RISK EdmontonWhen’s the last time you were challenged in a war strategy game such as risk or axis and Allies? The vault gaming room in Edmonton Alberta now offers both of these great Wargame classics which are available free to play with your friends or join one of our weekly groups where you can conquer the world.yuh

You also might remember risk as a game that lasts 8 to 10 hours or maybe, even more, it’s one of those games where you bring in a case of beer, order a few pizzas and plan to spend a lot of time playing over the weekend. Well, this great classic still does exist in this format you can also now play a game of risk with some of the new rules in about one hour.

The game of risk is definitely an adult style game, it’s not really meant for kids 10 and under but truly it’s enjoyed more by people 16 and up.

How To Play The New Version Of RISK

To play the game you get a deck of cards with all the territories, you deal out the cards and then you place your troops. There are different types of troops in this game there are The infantry which are worth one soldier, the Calvary which are the equivalent of five soldiers and the artillery which is equivalent to 10 troops.

Your place your troops throughout the different territories and then it’s time to attack, what are you do is you take a different territory using dice, the attacker uses three dice in the defender users two dice. whoever rolls the highest number on today’s wins that battle or at least removes one of their troops from the field.
If you wanna reduce the length of time that it takes to play this game there are a couple of different options, first there is the C-Spire card which you can place somewhere in the middle of the deck and when you come across this card the game is over and the player with the most territories wins. The second way is to choose how many territories a player needs to claim victory. It’s still a massively fun game they’ve just made it a whole lot shorter.
Now personally I love classic risk and they still include the rules for classic risk which means you’re going to have to take all the pieces one at the time and clean territories and have massive battles with all the troops until somebody claims complete dominance and takes over the world.
So the choice is yours do you want a faster version where you can get it done in an hour or so or do you want to play the classic version it’s going to take a little more time but in my opinion, it’s much more fun.
So what are you waiting for? Get down to the Vault Gaming room today and start playing this classic war simulation game.
