Rules and prizes

Tournament rules:
A gong sounds after 75 minutes, and the current hand and one more hand is played. If a full game (two winds) is played, the game stops immediately.

Scoring is done with sticks. Players should put the sticks on the table where all players can see them during the exchange. Players are obliged to count up their sticks when asked to by opponents. The game continues if a player’s score goes below zero; the player borrows score sticks from an opponent or the referee.

Individual prizes for the 3 highest ranked players. Prize for Danish champion (best ranked Danish player).

Time schedule

Please note that lunch durations are subject to change depending on the number of participants. The final schedule will be settled when registration closes. While we may shorten the lunch breaks, we will not extend the initial schedule.
