"Eight is Enough" team game

Team Games Return August 24!

The monthly "Eight is Enough" team game returns to BCOH on Tuesday, August 24. The purpose of the "eight is enough" format is to create teams of roughly equal strength and experience so that the field is balanced. Here's how it works:

Because this is a single-session event, each team is limited to four players.  Each player contributes a number of "team points" based on his/her masterpoint holding:

  • Strat A players, with over 2500 masterpoints, contribute three (3) team points.
  • Strat B players, with 750-2500 masterpoints, contribute two (2) team points.
  • Strat C players, wtih less than 750 masterpoints, contribute one (1) team point.

No team may have more than eight (8) team points.  Possible team compositions:

  • Two A players and two C players (3 + 3 + 1 + 1 = 8)
  • Four B players (2 + 2 +2 +2 = 8)
  • Two B players and two C players (2 + 2+ 1 + 1 = 6)
  • Any other combination of players such that the team points are less than or equal to eight (8).
