Castles of Burgundy Online Tournament

Season 17 Game Assignments

Group and Game Assignments for Season 17 are posted here.

The Castles of Burgundy tournament uses the online implementation on Board Game Arena. Use the “identical random board for all players” variant, which means that all 4 players in a game will play on the same board, and which board it is will be determined randomly.

Be sure to name the game using the game name below and invite the other players listed. Any player may set up the game, but the winner of each game is responsible for entering the results on bucketofdice.com.

Overview

Players are sorted into Groups of 7 players each based on previous results, so you should be matched against players of about your ability. In each season, you will play in 4 simultaneous games and each other member of your league will be in exactly two of them. Do well and you’ll get promoted to a tougher division. Do badly and you’ll drop to an easier one. Full details about our format and scoring system (which is the same for all our online leagues) are here: rules page.

Our Castles of Burgundy tournament use the online implementation at boardgamearena.com. We use the “identical random board” variant, which means that all 4 players in a game will play on the same board, and which board it is will be determined randomly.

After signing up, you will receive an email notifying you once the schedule has been posted. If you do sign up, you are committing to checking the website multiple times on most days (it’s OK if something comes up every once in a while, or if you’re out of town for a weekend, for example), but in general we’re hoping game lengths will be measured in weeks not months.

To break placement ties within games, if two or more players are tied on VPs, the tie will go to the player with the most empty spaces remaining on their board. If still tied, the tied player who moved last in the final turn will win the tie.
