~~ SPECIAL RULES FOR WILD REDHOT EUCHRE ~~



~~ WE HAVE A 3 STRIKE RULE ~~

1: YOU WILL BE ASKED TO STOP UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR

2: YOU WILL BE TOLD TO STOP UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR

3: YOU WILL BE BOXED FOR NOT STOPPING UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR

5: RESPECT TO ALL IS LAW

6: NO DRAMA! LEAVE ALL BAGGAGE OUT OF THE LEAGUE

7: FOUL LANGUAGE WILL NEVER BE ACCEPTABLE


~~ ALL GAMES WILL BE STD UNLESS RULES STATE OTHERWISE ~~


~~ SUBS ~~

If a sub is needed for any round (except Final round), the TD calls for ANY LEAGUE MEMBER TO SUB
(they do not have to be registered for the tourney). THE PLAYERS MAY NOT REQUEST CERTAIN SUBS
(remember we seed randomly, and subs should also be chosen randomly).
SUBS MAY SIT ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVED BASIS. Players must allow the first sub that sits to play.
If a player disconnects, subs will be put in as soon as the table allows a sub to sit.
To keep the tourneys moving and on schedule, a bot must be used until a sub can sit.
The finalists are allowed to choose a partner of their choice!


~~ DISCONNECTION ~~

If you are disconnected, you will be allowed 3 minutes to return to your game.
If you return within 3 minutes you will continue to play.
If the game has ended before your 3 mins has expired you will DQed.
The clock stops when play stops. When new round begins, new clock begins.
If you disconnect or "poof" 3 times during a tour you will be disqualified from said tour.


~~ TIMERS~~

Each round is set for 20 minutes.
The host will start the timer in the lobby when all players are at the table.
The host will give a warning after 15 minute of play time, that 5 minutes remain to play.
If the round is not finished within the alloted time then the highest score will win that round.

~~ SLOW PLAY~~

Each round is set for 20 minutes.
Talking on messengers during play which causes slow play is unacceptable
Playing in 2 different Leagues at the same time is unacceptable, will result in an automtic DQ.
We have a tool that shows the Host if you have a slow internet connection.
If someone is slow they will be asked to Please Play, and will be DQed if asked a 3rd time with a sub asked to replace you.


~~ TOURNAMENT TABLE SEATING ~~

The Tournament Host will call you to your table. If you do not sit to start the game within 3 minutes,
the 3 minute Timer Clock will start on you and a random sub will replace you.
If you are playing a ladder game you must finish the ladder game later (take note of score) and start your tournament game


~~ ABUSE & SPORTSMANSHIP ~~

Respect All Players and Hosts
If you have an 'OPINION' about a hand played or a game that went awry, tell it to your dog or cat.
Attacking someone with the intent to hurt them in any way may get you disqualified from the tournament,
at the discretion of the Host of the Tourney.

~~ CALLING LONERS ~~

You are allowed to 'Go Alone' on 8 points but you will be disqualified if you go alone with 9!
Sometimes it is necessary to go alone on 8 points so that your partner doesn't trump the first trick
(you may need the lead for 2nd trick!), thereby messing up your chance for 2 points and the win.
DO NOT 'GO ALONE' WITH 9 POINTS! This is NOT allowed in tournaments unless the game rules specify loners!
It is disrespectful to the other team and your partner to go alone with 9 points.
If you go alone on 9 points you will be penalised 3 points, even if it was a mistake.

If a member goes alone on 9 points,
the Host must be called to the table so they can witness the end result of the hand.
