It was an incredibly fun competition (as always), much thanks to Martin (who did almost everything locally) and @Simon (who was there remotely for us during the whole competition despite being in a faraway country and timezone). Really amazing surprise events as well (especially the one in the Finals, as you can see below).
== Surprise Events ==
All of the play-off matches started with a surprise event - basically something that we haven’t practiced on before. The competitors would get the instructions and 5 minutes of preparation time, and then we would start. And after that it was a game best of 5, where the loser of the surprise event was allowed to select the next discipline (and then alternating until someone reached 3 wins). You can check out all of the games on the link above, or below.
Quarter Finals 1 & 2 - 30 white square Images with colored shapes in some or all of the corners. (Instructions)
Quarter Finals 3 & 4 - 30 white square Images with card suit symbols in some or all of the corners. (Instructions)
Semi Finals 1 & 2 - 30 Names, but where the faces were just the back of people’s heads. (Instructions)
Third-Place Match - 50 Words, where each word was a binary string of variable length. (Instructions)
Final - 30 Images of Memory League co-founder Simon Orton, with a variety of facial expressions. (Instructions)
Funny little thing that happened: Martin and me tied in the surprise event in the match for third place, so to decide who would get to pick the next discipline, Idriz wrote down a number between 1-100 and had us both guess what it was, where the closest one would be allowed to pick first. Since we’re both smartasses, we both picked 50 independent of each other. So we had to flip a coin instead.
