Tournaments are great for 25-729 players (yes, 729 players!).  It is extremely rare to be able to entertain a group of 25-729 people for such a small amount of money.  NAQ Tournaments are that rare exception! 

Tournaments are great for companies, schools, youth groups, fundraisers, residence hall activities, campus-wide competitions, parties, churches, clubs and large group events.  Click on Fun Stuff for more details about your specific group. 

Please see the Tournament Suggestions at the bottom of this page for more information on running a smooth Tournament.  If you have a large group, a NAQ representative can help you organize (and possibly attend) the event.  If you need assistance, please email tournaments@NAQgames.com and we can discuss your Tournament by phone and/or email. 

NAQ Tournaments can be played as 2-Round or 3-Round Tournaments depending on how many players participate in the Tournament.  See below for more details:


2-Round Tournaments:

If you have 25-81 players we suggest a 2-Round Tournament.  In Round-1, we recommend dividing players within 5-9 tables with 5-9 players per table.  It is best to divide the tables with an equal amount of players at each table (or as close as possible).  The winner from each table will advance to the Final Table for the Championship Game.

3-Round Tournaments:

If you have 82-729 players we suggest a 3-Round Tournament.  In Round-1 we recommend dividing players within 16-81 tables.  It is best to divide the tables with an equal amount of players at each table (or as close as possible).  Round-2 will consist of the advancing players from Round-1. Round-3 will consist of the advancing players from Round-2.  Round-3 will be the Final Table for the Championship Game.

Below is an example of a 100-player tournament, 20 tables with 5 players per table in Round-1.  Advance the top three players from each table in Round-1 to Round-2.  Advance the winners from each table in Round-2 to Round-3.  Round-3 will be the Final Table for the Championship Game:


343-Player Tournament
:

In a 343-player tournament, there are 49 tables with 7 players per table in Round-1.  Advance the winners from each table in Round-1 to Round-2.  Advance the winners from each table in Round-2 to Round-3.  Round-3 will be the Final Table for the Championship Game:

Round-1 = 49 tables x 7 players per table

Round-2 = 7 tables x 7 players per table

Final table = 7 players


Ultimate NAQ Tournament:

The largest Tournament we recommend is for 729 players.  It is called the “Ultimate NAQ Tournament”.  If you are considering a Tournament near this size, we strongly recommend that you email your contact information to tournaments@NAQgames.com for assistance.  A NAQ Tournament specialist will contact you by phone and/or email.  If you prefer, we will consider attending the event to help you run a smooth Tournament. 

In a 3-Round 729-player “Ultimate NAQ Tournament”, there are 81 tables with 9 players per table in Round-1.  Advance the winners from each table in Round-1 to Round-2.  Advance the winners from each table in Round-2 to Round-3.  Round-3 will be the Final Table for the Championship Game:

Round-1 = 81 tables x 9 players per table

Round-2 = 9 tables x 9 players per table

Final Table = 9 players


Tournament Suggestions:

It is not required, however, we suggest having one person be the Tournament Director.

You may want to consider giving away prizes to the final table players and the champion.  NAQ Products make great prizes! 

Internet access is not required, however, we suggest (if possible) having Internet access available for any potential disputed questions or answers. 

Good Sportsmanship is required from all players!

As players enter the tournament room, assign them a seat and table.  It is not required, however, we suggest seating family members at different tables.

The following should not be allowed at a table:

  • Computers of any kind
  • Cell phones
  • Foul language
  • Inappropriate behavior

In 3-Round Tournaments, where 2 or 3 players advance from Round-1, make sure you separate the advancing players in the next round.  If there is a tie for 2nd or 3rd place from Round-1, then use the tie-breaking method of the player holding the most NAQ Cards.  See the NAQ Instructions for more tie-breaker details. 

If you have a large group, a NAQ representative can help you organize (and possibly attend) the event.  If you need assistance please email tournaments@NAQgames.com and we can discuss your Tournament by phone and/or email.
