Free Promos for all players!!!
Winner receives a Dominion Game Product, a Gas Card and hotel arrangements paid for by Rio Grande Games to the Dominion US Finals in Chicago in July.  (The World Finals will be in August this year at GenCon in Indianapolis).




How do I register???
1.   To ensure a place in the tournament, register by sending an email to Shiloh Christie at shilohc888@sbcglobal.net or shilohc888@gmail.com  including your first and last name indicating that you are coming to the tournament.  Your e-mail will not be used for any other purpose than to inform you about tournament details and/or changes.  There are a maximum of 64 seats available so register soon.

2.   Show up at MichiCon on Friday night or Saturday before 11:30am and pay the MichCon entry fee ($6 for Friday night, $12 for Saturday only or $15 for both days).  Oakland University students are free with ID card.  The event fee for the Dominion tournament is an additional $5 payable at MichiCon.

3.   Show up by 11:30am on Saturday June 23nd and sign in.


Conditions/Rules
1.   All players will play 5 preliminary rounds involving 3 or 4 player-type games only. 

2.   Cards from Dominion, Intrigue, Seaside, Prosperity, Hinterlands and Cornucopia will be available for play.  Alchemy will NOT be played during this tournament.  Promo cards may be played in Single Elimination rounds only. 

3.   Rounds will last no longer than 40 minutes.  A 5 minute warning will be given along with a “last turn” call at the around at that time as well.  All 5 rounds will run from approximately 12-4pm with Single Elimination rounds lasting until about 6pm.

4.   The top ˝ of players will advance to the single elimination semi-finals (or quarter-finals depending on how many register).  Total Wins will determine who advances to single elimination rounds.  If there is a tie in any game, both players (or more) will be credited for the win.  If there is a tie for advancement to single elimination, both tied players will advance.

5.    Players must act in a respectful manner during the tournament.  Etiquette will be explained by e-mail and at the tournament.  Most of all- have fun!!!

***Below are all the possible sets that will used for the Pre-lim rounds 1-5.  You can practice with these sets from now until tournament day.  Single Elimination round sets will be chosen on Tournament Day.  Good luck!!!   
I highly advise players to study up on their cards and strategy on www.dominionstrategy.com   Some of the best players (and the creator Donald X) chat there and play on dominion.isotropic.org  Don’t be a fool- come with your “A” game!!!

PS: We're going to host a qualifier as well, but the details are still murky.  Suffice to say that it will be online (of course), it will only be for Americans (sorry!  we tried really hard to go international but we were turned down), and it will be played on the new server, whenever that comes out...

So it'll be a qualifier for the 2014 Championships then?

You have to be kidding me. I live 45 minutes from Oakland U. Well, guess I know what I'm doing on June 23!

Whoa, which direction?

Assuming I have nothing else going on, I'll be driving up from the south... perhaps I'll see you there!

Cool! I live just east of Detroit, so... from the east.

Pretty randomly crazy that this qualifier would be held at Oakland U.

They don't. It's called the World Dominion Championships for a reason! (like the World Series)

I am told that there will be other regional qualifiers in other countries. After all, last year was  as international as you could get (1 finalist per country).

Oh yes, these tournaments will also all be 4-player. (Maybe ours will be 3p.  We'll see.)

I think you could qualify to perform good on the Euro Championship, held at Essen (spiel)

There is an EC in Essen?
Last year, there was the German championship and then the world championship. In Germany there are several qualifying tournaments (20, as a matter of fact (incl one online on BSW); we are not used to such distances as (most of) you are in the US ;-)). I also know there are national championships in the Netherlands (which Geronimoo summarised in another thread) and Sweden (Lekkit and Fabian mentioning it). But they are 4pl here, as well.

Yeah, you're right. That was the world championship. Not a EC in Essen

Hey, let's be fair and realistic here. It'll be 2016, at least ;)

Apparently there are quite a few of us within an hour's drive of Detroit.  Which direction are you?  I am in Toledo, and apparent RobZ is from the snooty east suburbs. :p

Hello.  Name's Bruce.  It's all right.  I understand.  Why trust a shark, right?

Is quite curious - Who is the mystical "Celestial Chameleon"?

I'm 15 miles north of Detroit and 15 miles east of Oakland U.  I joked a while back on BGG that I'd try and get an official qualifier in my basement, but now I won't have to since this one is literally in my backyard!

I'm going for chemistry.  And I've just made the decision for U of M, so I will very likely see many of you at the tourney.

Hello everyone, I'm the GM for the tournament at Oakland University.  It is an official qualifier.  One of the people here- I think an administrator contacted me, asked me to join so here I am!!!  Any questions please ask here, email or PM- whatever.  I gave the person who contacted me (admin I think) permission to post the 3pg. info document on this website so all could see.  I'm getting high interest and great response so far.  Jay from Rio Grande is really helping out bigtime.  I'm very impressed with him and RioGrandeGames.  This WILL be a great tournament.  So far we will hold 64 seats- if we exceed that- I'll try to work to get more space.  Also, I'm working on more giveaways.  RioGrande has already helped some in this area and will give more if the tournament gets bigger- which it looks like it will.  You will not want to miss this if you are a big Dominion player near the Detroit Metro Area.

Any questions- Ask away. :)
