Cbusripper Grand Slam

ABOUT

The second Grand Slam of a season is the Ships & Bases “Cbusripper”1 Grand Slam, played with all sets and expansions that include ships and base cards (VW-1BF2KA).

Grand Slams are a single elimination tournament, each round being best of 3.  Players will have 5 days to complete each round, which will likely require playing multiple games at once.

Consolation Bracket: New for Season 2, Grand Slams will include a consolation bracket.  Players that lose in the main bracket will be added to a consolation bracket that is also single elimination.  Players in the consolation bracket cannot win the event, but can earn points the more they win.  The consolation bracket will likely take longer to finish than the main bracket, so the consolation bracket will not hold up the start of the next event.  Any points earned in the consolation bracket by the start of the next event will count towards seeding in the next event.  Any points earned after the start of the next event will count towards seeding in the following event.

1This Grand Slam is named after Cbusripper, the first player to win this Grand Slam. Among players that have won this Grand Slam, the event will be named after the player with the most career points earned in this Grand Slam.
