Tournament Format

Everyone involved with have the chance to throw in not one but TWO tournaments.

On Saturday morning, we’ll host a Tiered Tournament with each tier having its own prize pool! Based on the number of registrations, we’ll split the field into either two or three tiers using your last recorded IATF season in Axescores (or WATL equivalent). The top tier will battle it out throwing Premier rules with all other tiers throwing Standard rules.

On Sunday, the main event will be a large Open Tournament with everyone throwing Premier rules to battle it out for the largest prize pool of the weekend.

Saturday Skills

Jill of All Trades: 15 throws to score the greatest number of points. First 5 throws are standard. Second 5 throws are 1.5 spin. Last 5 throws are underhand.

Around the World: An oldy but a goody! We’ll be using traditional Around the World rules to see who can make their way across the target board in the least number of throws.

Mixed City Yahtzee: Open to EVERYONE, you’ll sign up as an individual because Urban Axes will be making the teams using the following criteria (to the best of our ability): teams will consist of folks from at least three cities, teams will have gender diversity as sign-ups allow, and the combined average of  each team will be roughly equal.

Ladies Choices Doubles: Our Ladyblade throwers will pick their teammates with no limitations! Make sure you and your partner sign up as an individual (include your teammate’s name in the booking notes!). Ladyblades may ALSO sign up without a partner and we’ll pair you up.
