The Modern Abstract Games World Championship is a unique meta-event, which celebrates the best all round Abstract Games player in the world. The player with the highest top five Pentamind scores from the Abstract Games will be crowned the World Champion.
Event Score = 100 x ((n+5)/(n+6)) x ((n – p)/(n – 1))
where n is the number of players and p is the player’s finishing position before tiebreaks in the event.
In the event of a tie, the next Pentamind score (i.e. the 6th best result) will be used as a tiebreak; the secondary tiebreak will be the 7th best Pentamind score.
The 2020 Modern Abstract Games events are: Hive, Battlesheep, Hex, Zertz, Twixt, Quarto, Veletas, Circle of Life, Othello, Abalone, Trench, Quoridor, Entropy, and Lines of Action. Please note that you can’t use two events of the same type–just like the Pentamind WC. For example, only one Battlesheep, Hive or Hex can be applied towards the top 5 scores for the MAG WC.
