How do I qualify for the finals?
You may qualify for the finals in one of two ways - Five players qualify through Open Play and seven players qualify through Session Play.
Open Play

Five (5) positions in the finals are available through open play. Individual tournaments are scheduled periodically throughout the days of the qualifying season (Nov12-Dec8). Tournaments are 10 minutes 45 plays and are generally scheduled every 15 minutes however this schedule may change. Eligible players who earn the top overall scores in the following games will be qualified to participate in the finals for cash prizes. For example, there will be multiple Top Dog tournaments throughout the qualifying season. The player earning the record for most points in one of those tournaments will be given entry to the finals. Open Play qualifiers will be the high scores of the following games - Top Dog, Top 10, Mess O Perch, Pride of MN and Vikings Victory. Open Play Qualifiers End Tuesday Dec 8 at 5PM

Session Play

Seven (7) positions in the finals are available through session play. Session play consists of three (3) ten minute 45 play tournament games designated as a session. Sessions will be scheduled throughout the qualifying period. The following are the scheduled session based tournaments. The times and dates are subject to change.

Tuesday Dec 1 6:00 PM
Wednesday Dec 2 1:00 PM
Thursday Dec 3 6:00 PM
Tuesday Dec 8 6:00 PM


The total combined score from each of the 3 tournaments will create a session score for that player. Throughout the season, a ranking of session scores will decide the top 7 eligible players that qualify for the 7 positions in the finals. A player may compete in multiple session play qualifiers, however only the top session score will be the qualifying score. A player may only qualify once. In the event that a player in a qualifying position is deemed ineligible, the player next on the session leaderboard will receive the next position.

An individual is eligible for only 1 qualifying position.

A player may only qualify once for the finals. If an individual ends the qualifying season with the top score in 2 different games, the player will occupy one of the qualifying positions. The other position will be determined from the next highest score in either of the games where the player held the highest score.

In the event that there are not 7 eligible players available to fill the 7 session play qualifying positions, the remaining positions may be filled from eligible open play players who did not finish in a qualifying position. The positions will be filled with open play scores for single session games beginning with the highest score from an eligible player who is not holding a qualifying position.



No cost to enter

The 12 finalists will be announced prior to the finals commencing on December 16th. The finals will consist of a series of tournament games and the player's total score for all games played within the finals session will be the rank score for prizes. Finishing positions are ranked from top score (1st place) to bottom score (12th place)
