General Web-based Tournament Rules All rules pertaining to conduct of web-based tournaments will be as provided in the Warp Gammon Web-based Tournament rules.  Players should pay particular attention to policies regarding scheduling.

As a general guideline you should send an email within the first 2 days to allow your opponent time to respond.  An extension of up to two days will be granted on request if the players have been attempting to schedule.

Players may be denied entry for failure to complete matches in this or any other Warp Gammon web-based event.

Forfeits Players do not need to apply for forfeits, they will be granted automatically at the end of each round based upon scheduling emails. Emails sent in the last 2 days will be ignored unless they are part of a continuing communication between players. You cannot expect a forfeit win if your first email is sent less than 2 days from the end of play regardless of whether your opponent has scheduled or not.

Players who have made insufficient effort to play all their matches may be refused entry to the next month's event.

Tournament Staff The Warp Gammon Galaxy host and Director of Warp Gammon is Steve Mongeon (SteveWorld);
