OFFICIAL TOURNAMENT RULES

The Pretty Tough tournament will be a double elimination style tournament.  To determine seeding for the bracket, players will compete in 4 preliminary matches.  The cumulative score of these matches will be used to determine seeding, with the highest score being the one seed, next highest will be the two seed and so on. During the preliminary matches, a win will be rewarded 5 bonus points toward the overall seeding scores

A GAME

A single game is played between two (2) players. Players throw alongside one another at their own target. Players must throw within a four (4) second window of each other for the throw to be counted.

A single game consists of 10 throws total. Each player will throw 10 times, with a pause after the 5th throw to swap targets.

On the 10th throw each player may opt to throw at the diamond, which is worth ten (10) points for the final throw. Players do not have to attempt the diamond, but need to verbally announce they are doing so before either player throws the final throw.

In the event of a tie, a tie-breaker throw will determine the winner which is the throw closest to a diamond.

SCORING

A game is scored by an official referee. The referee announces the games beginning and end. They will call each score before players retrieve their axes.

Our tournament is based off a standard 5 board, 5 ring target.  The outermost ring is worth one (1) point working its way into four (4) points.  The red bullseye is with six (6) points.  The two diamonds at the bottom are worth ten (10) points and can be attempted on the 10th throw only. The diamonds are all or nothing shots.  The winner is determined by the highest total score in a match.  In the case of a tie, a tie breaker throw will be done where the winner will be determined by who is closest to the diamond.
