This year, we’ll be starting the fantasy game from the prelims! And to kick things off, it’ll be a simple one.
From each preliminary group, predict 3 characters that will finish Top 3 of their respective group. Order them according to the likely positions they’ll occupy (1st, 2nd, 3rd).
5 points per character if they do finish in the Top 3.
5 bonus points if overall order is right.
Thus, a max of 20 points to be gained per group, but…
In the spirit of mahjong (since Saki’s going to be the main talking point of this tourney), you’ll have a chance to gain extra points.
You can declare ‘riichi’ for a particular group entry. Once you do so, you’ll get a extra 10 points if you get the Top 3 and its order right (thus bringing the max pts to 30). However, if you get any of the Top 3 and its order wrong, you’ll be deducted 5 points.
Here’s an example of how it works.
Here’s the list of the prelim groupings. (thanks, chaosprophet!)
