### Second MAME Olympiad Retry - Brainstorming

Posted:

**Sun Nov 26, 2006 1:38 pm**With the coordinator positions decided in this event, and apparently it's highly likely that this event is first if it goes off, so I thought I'd call for a brainstorming session now. I'm also looking to see who's interested in this type of event at all.

What I'm going to do is accept input for ideas on how we should procede. The only rule that will remain in place is that you won't play for yourself, but for your country (or at least your continent ). I'll place all of the current ideas on this thread, so keep an eye out on this first post.

- Teams of 3-6 people, regionalized.

- Each team to have a team captain... decided amongst the teams.

- 10-20 games selected, more likely 16.

- All players will be required to play 1/2 and only 1/2 of the games selected. (8 and only 8 if we take the more likely approach of 16 games)

- All games will require x to y people from each team playing each game.

x = 1 if 3 or 4 players, 2 if 5 or 6 players

y = 2 if 3 players, 3 if 4 or 5 players, and 4 if 6 players.

GAME SELECTION:

- A la Tournament, vote for games.

- A la Knockout, GB9 chooses games (and would, therefore, not play)

- Scrap Olympiad and substitute with World Cup, see below.

TEAM SELECTION:

- Play by country

- Play by multiple countries (if one country doesn't have enough players)

- Play by continent

- Play by randomly selected teams of x number of people

PROCEDURE:

- Score in a 10-3-1 system

- Play a la knockout
