Snitch Tournament Regulations
*All matches will be played in #snitch.
*As soon as you realize you can't make one of your matches, please post in the Reschedule thread
. If you post at least 48 hours before the original time, you can reschedule! Matches can be rescheduled to any time or date, provided that there is a referee available.
*A player who doesn't show up within 20 minutes of the game start time forfeits the match.
*If the snitch hasn't been caught within 90 minutes after the start of the game, it will be counted as a draw. (Unofficial play may of course continue if the players and the ref are still available.)

For a tie between two people
, head-to-head records
will be used.
For a tie between three people
(or when the head-to-head is a tie), all three people will be set the same logic puzzle
and seeding will be determined based on fastest solve time.
