We are working on some new, awesome extensions for Tecmo and Tecmo Madison. We are going to start a tournament series, including qualifiers and a last chance event, that leads up and builds to Tecmo Madison — The Road To Tecmo Madison.

Overall, there will be 5 tournaments – 3 qualifiers that will be coined “Majors”, 1 Last Chance event and the main event, Tecmo Madison.

Each of the majors will contribute to a new point and seeding system for Tecmo tournaments. Players who finish in the top 4 of each major will get a guaranteed Top 6 region seed at Madison. Major winners will get an even better seeding, with preferred placement into regions.

The points system will be assigned to all tournaments that adhere to a few standard rules and formats. Those are: They must use the basic rules from Tecmo Madison, they must have more than 24 people, they must submit the scores to TecmoMadison.com using the proper format, and the final portion of the tournament must be a seeded bracket, single or double elimination.

The points system is as follows:

1st 25
2nd 18
3rd 15
4th 12
5th 10
6th 8
7th 6
8th 4
9th 2
10th 1


Once your tournament has been posted on TecmoBowl.org and pinned, the Tecmo Madison committee will read through and reach out to let you know if your tournament will be part of The Road To Tecmo Madison.

We will announce all the tournament majors in the coming weeks.

Players: We will keep track of your points and they will be posted on your TecmoMadison.com profile as we build them out. More on this later.

Organizers: There will be further benefits to being part of the series and we will make a separate post laying out that information for you.

Good luck and godspeed during this Tecmo Bowl season.
