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)) x 1.08*
where n is the number of players and p is the player’s finishing position before tiebreaks in the event.
*The 1.08 bonus factor is applied in Premier Events only and applies to Abalone, Entropy, Lines of Action, Quoridor and Twixt.
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 2018 Modern Abstract Games events are: Stratego (Duel and Classic), Othello, Abalone, Boku, Trench, Continuo, Blokus, Quoridor, Entropy, Lines of Action, Twixt, Colour Chess and Kamisado.
