View Full Version : "All For One" Tournament Format

I had a request for how we run our "All For One" tournament format. I hope you guys enjoy it! Here it is below.


- 4 Round Pod Tournament with a cut to Top 4
- 3 to 4 Player Pods

Character Selection
- All 69 characters are layed out on the table.
This includes promo characters Joker, Skitter, Vixen and Black Lightning.
(Excluded characters from the list are: Confrontations, Teen Titans Go, Rivals and Crisis.)
Other banned characters are Batwoman, Phantom Girl & Huntress*

- Each player will choose a character to eliminate from play.

- Then each player will choose one of the remaining characters to use for the entire tournament.

Round Set Up:
Round 1 DC Comics Deck Building Game Base Set
Round 2 Heroes Unite
Round 3 Forever Evil
Round 4 Teen Titans
Top 4 (Newest non Confrontation DC expansion)

Use 8 out of the 12 Super-Villains each round. This consists of the starter villain and 7 random Super-villains (or 6 random Super-villains and the final Super-villain). This is how the game normally plays in the rulebook.

Play Time:
- Round 1-4 will be 45-minute time limits
- No time limit for Top 4

At the end of Round time, play continues until each player has had the same number of turns.

Players will earn points at game end in the following order according to how many VP (Victory Points) they have accumulated:

1st: 5 points
2nd: 3 points
3rd: 2 points
4th: 2 points

If points are tied in VP, the game moves to Tiebreaker #1 and a Tiebreaker #2 to determine 1st - 4th placement.
The tiebreakers are:

Tiebreaker #1: Most Super-Villains defeated at rounds end.
Tiebreaker #2: Most cards in your deck at rounds end. (Including Weakness and Starter cards.)

At the end of the last round, 4 players will advanced to Top Cut. Top Cut is decided by the highest total points accumulated from each round.

If points are tied for Top Cut, the game moves to Tiebreaker #1 and a Tiebreaker #2 to determine 1st - 4th placement.
Tiebreaker #1 Most Super-Villains defeated throughout the entire tournament.
Tiebreaker #2 Total VP accumulated throughout the entire tournament.

*Banned Cards and Characters List

SuperBoy Prime (Super Villian)
Takes to much time from the tournament to choose from remaining characters

Phantom Girl
(Reason: Expansion cards with Time Travel will not be used.)

Huntress and Batwoman
(Reason: Expansion cards with 90-degree effects will not be used.)

***This format was created before New Gods. I'm not sure if the New Gods characters should be allowed as of yet. They might be too over powered.
