GRAND PRIX SYSTEM

The goal of the Grand Prix system is to connect countries and cities where there are organised Stratego tournaments. Since the number of participants in tournaments is not so large, it is important that players are ready to travel to other tournaments and support each other. This way organisers of tournaments also experience that it is nice that other than local players are playing in their tournament. In attempt to support this idea we decided to make a separate tournament system in which players can earn points. There are larger tournaments, which have more than 12 participants. They have the status of a Grand Prix, and smaller ones, called Open Tournaments. This is the number of points that can be earned during a tournament:

Grand Prix

  1. 16 points
  2. 14 points
  3. 12 points
  4. 10 points
  5. 08 points
  6. 06 points
  7. 05 points
  8. 04 points
  9. 03 points
  10. 02 points

International Tournament

  1. 12 points
  2. 10 points
  3. 08 points
  4. 06 points
  5. 04 points
  6. 03 points
  7. 02 points

All other players who played in a tournament will get one point for qualification

For 2019 we are planning to organise the following tournaments

EGC Flanders Open Tournament 23.03.2019

EGC Grand Prix of Wallonia 04.05.2019

EGC Dutch Grand Prix 05.10.2019

After the Dutch Grand Prix we will decide who is in the top 16 of the Grand Prix. All qualifiers will get an invitation for the EGC De Vos Recycling Grand Prix Final, including last years’ winner, Philippe Bergiers.

There will be also three wild cards available for those who will be a referee during one of the EGC tournaments of the Grand Prix Cycle. However, this person will need to participate at one other tournament of the cycle, and gather one point. Wild cards that will not be claimed. If a wild card is not claimed, the tournament organisation can reward it to other players in other EGC (supported) events.

The final will be held in December 2019.
