That was an interesting experimental tournament to say the least. I definitely do not want to host something like this again lol. It was hard enough to keep on top of everyone's teams, even with three players. Anything beyond that would've been head-spinning. The general idea was to turn the traditional imperfect information game of Hackmons Cup and turn it into something where everyone can see everyone else's playing pieces. Players would, on paper, procure the best (with the exception of broken Wonder Guard) of what one sees on the ladder, and then bring it to a tournament format to face off against opponents in 11th dimensional games of battling.

Thanks to the other two participants for sticking with this format :psyglad:
