Sunday 23rd August
From 6:00 pm until 10:30 pm UK time (1pm to 530pm Eastern Time USA)
Catan Bullet is just like regular Catan except that you will have less time on your turn to negotiate trades and play your builds. Where as in our regular Catan tournament we played with a 160 second turn timer, Bullet will use a 70 second timer! This makes for a faster paced tournament where you will have to think fast to be successful.
Full rules of the game can be found here
This tournament is open to all players, beginners and Catan experts alike. We will play four rounds of four player games with players awarded Tournament Points based on the results of each round. Games are drawn such that everyone plays against a wide number of opponents and in the later rounds the strongest players will be matched against one another in order to decide a champion. After four rounds the player with the most Tournament Points is the winner!
– 4 Rounds
– 4 Player Games
– Rounds 1-3 Heats, Round 4 Final
The games will be played on Catan Universe, the official online app for Catan. In order to participate, you need to purchase the Base Game.
