LEEDS U ROCK PAPER SCISSORS! TOURNAMENT 5!
LURPS is back!
The fifth tournament of the 2010-2011 year is scheduled to take place for Tuesday 8th March. Once again we’ll be hosted in the awesome FAB Cafe, and start at 8 o’clock, so come and have a good time with us in a quality Rock Paper Scissors Tournament! There are only three tournaments left this year, if you’re interested in taking over and running LURPS next year then have a chat with Darlo. Also in an effort to make the league leadership race more open, Darlo’s agreed to having a 20 point deduction. Now there’s everything to play for!
After the tournament FAB Cafe will be open until 3am, and normally has an offer on drinks through the night.
NO ENTRY FEE!
1st Prize – TBC
2nd Prize – TBC
3rd Prize – Some cheap-ass instant noodles.
(As we’re in an Eastery shopping period and it’s Pancake Day, the prizes will probably be themed around that)
NON-MEMBERS ALWAYS WELCOME ^_^
SPECIAL TOURNAMENT – We’re re-doing SPROCK! Aswell as our regular style, we’re running a ‘Winner stays on’ type tournament called SPROCK in which one person WILL win up to a kilogram of chocolate! More details can be found at this thread, http://www.worldrps.com/bullboard/index.php?topic=2727.240 , and also at the bottom of this description. I’ll also explain this on the day. we did run this style of tournament back in December, which was quite successful.
IMPORTANT NOTE – FAB Cafe is an over 18 venue, so please be sure to bring your ID (passport or driving license) otherwise you might not be allowed in. Also, no sportswear, so please leave the tracky-bottoms at home.

RULES (Simple Version)
- Only throws of Rock, Paper or Scissors will be permitted. Throwing, or claiming to throw, any other move may result in disqualification from the tournament.
- Rock – Rock is to be made by making a fist facing the opponent with the thumb either tucked in or to the side.
- Scissors – Scissors is made like rock, only the index and middle fingers are to point outward towards the opponent.
- Paper – Paper is made by presenting your hand either palm up or palm down (never sideways/standing up) with all fingers together and pointing towards the opponent, not ‘fanned open’.
- Priming (aka Pumping, or ‘What to go on’) – It is very important that both players throw their move at the same time. Therefore we say that both players give three primes before throwing, meaning you bounce your hand 3 times and throw on four. (For example; One …… Two …… Three …… Four (throw when you say four, not after))
- Matches will be played on a best out of 3 Game-basis (i.e. the first to win two hands).
- ‘Smack talk’, ‘putting off’, trying to ‘psyche out’ a player and so on is all fine, however no physical contact is permitted. That being said bad sportsmanship will not be tolerated (i.e. lying about the throw you have just done to try and win a hand you actually lost).
- The judge’s decision is final.
- The tournament will begin with each player receiving three tokens.
- Each player will try to play as many people as possible in the allotted time.
- When a player wins a match (not a game), he/she takes a token from his opponent.
- When a person loses all of their tokens, they will be eliminated from the tournament.
- At the end of the allotted time, the 8 players with the most tokens will advance to the
- If there are only 8 players remaining before time runs out, time will be called early.
- Those 8 players will then play a random opponent, with the winner advancing forward.
- The two semi-final losers will play each other for 3rd place before the final.
- The finalists will play each other on a best of 3 Match-basis (i.e. the first to win two matches).

At the end of LURPS round one, the Top 7 competitors form the SPRock Panel. For simplicity, I’ll refer to these players individually as Panel Member #, where # is the position they finished (ie the top competitor at this point is Panel Member 1). Only these seven have the chance to win the top prize.
Panel Member 1 then plays Panel Member 2. If Panel Member 1 wins, they will then play Panel Member 3 (then 4, 5, 6, and 7 if they win). If they beat all the Panel Members, they then play the 8th place competitor (the remaining quarter finalist). By defeating the 8th place competitor, they will win the top prize.
If any of the Panel Members along the way defet Panel Member 1, then it is their turn to try and win a further 6 successive matches (first against the remaining Panel Members, then 8th place, then randomly drawn competitors who didn’t qualify for the final stages). If they can successfully do this (winning 7 matches in a row), then they win the top prize.
If the current leading Panel Member loses to 8th place, or one of the randomly drawn competitors, the competition is over and the winner of that match (either the 8th place competitor or the randomly drawn competitor) will win a secondary prize.
