More Information:

Each Antidote Tournament consists of two phases, each lasting approximately 45-60min. In Phase I, all participants will play three games of Antidote in an attempt to accumulate the highest possible score. Lowest or negatives scores at each table will be eliminated after the conclusion of the three games, while all remaining players will move on to Phase II.

In Phase II, participants will be assigned to final tables they must “survive to advance”. That is, each table will play consecutive games of Antidote, with players who “die” (or those scoring the least if all survive) being eliminated after every game. Last surviving players from all final tables will combine into a new final table or tables (depending on the number of participants) until there is just one player left. This player will be crowned champion and win the grand prize!

The complete tournament rules including the rules for Antidote will be stated by the tournament organizer at the beginning of the event.
