Swiss pairings over 4 rounds where each player has 25 minutes per game. Standard MSO tie-breaks apply.
A pattern-matching tile game, ideally for two players, Continuo was invented by Maureen Hiron in 1982 and has sold over five million copies in a total of 37 countries. The game consists of 42 cardboard tiles, each tile divided into 16 (4×4) small squares. Each square is of a single colour and a tile may have either two or three different colours (there are only four colours in total – blue, green, yellow and red). Players draw tiles and lay down one in turn such that it abuts at least one tile already on the table. The player scores all squares of a group o the same colour where at least one square on the placed tile is contiguous with at least one square of the tile it abuts. A group of squares may cover several tiles. The winner is the player with the highest score when all tiles have been played.
