Game Colony Guidelines

Whether you are an experienced Internet player or new to "our world," here is a little insight into how the ACC tournaments at Game Colony will work:

  1. ROOM REQUIREMENTS: To play in the ACC tournaments, you must come to the ACC room which is visible through the ACC portal at www.cribbage.org/internet, http://www.gamecolony.com/acc/, https://www.gamecolony.com/acc/index1.html, or by logging into the GameColony site, clicking on cribbage icon, then clicking on ACC (in blue lettering). Remember: if you are currently a Game Colony player with a $TIX nickname, you will have to obtain a new nickname to play in ACC tournaments; please register your name you play under through the ACC.
  2. SIGN-IN:Click on the tournament, then click on "Sign up for this tournament"Note: You must be in the tournament room at least 5 minutes before the tournament starts., or you will be removed.  To enter the tournament lounge click on "ACC room".
  3. BYES: All byes will be in the FIRST ROUND. The determination of who gets the byes is completely random and the TD does not have control over it.
  4. ASSIGNMENTS: All assignments will be in the "lobby" area. Either player on each assignment can set up the table, as explained in the rules before the tournament starts.  After the first round, do not join another player until the TD posts the assignment with your name on it in that same lobby chat area.
  5. TABLE SET-UP: The person opening the table will ensure the following is selected: 121 point game, 6 card, show cards, 30 seconds on play time, non rated.
  6. POSTING RESULTS: Please post your results at the TD as follows to help the TD see it: ****Your name / their name**** in the lounge.  The asterisks are very important so that the TD will notice an assignment amid other chat posts.
