The Scoring
Select 13 teams from the tournament. Your teams will earn bonus points for each round they advance PLUS the the seed number of that team. The bonus points increase with each round.

3rd ROUND: 7 bonus points + seed
FINAL FOUR ROUND: 10 bonus points + seed
CHAMPIONSHIP: 15 bonus points + seed
CHAMPION: 20 bonus points + seed
EXAMPLE
TEAM X is one of your 13 teams and is a 5 seed.
Team X wins 3 games.
1st ROUND: 1 bonus point + 5 seed = 6 points
2nd ROUND: 3 bonus points + 5 seed = 8 points
3rd ROUND: 7 bonus points + 5 seed = 12 points
TEAM X totals 26 points.

Each round is totaled for your 13 teams and tracked on your SCORECARD against other players in your league.

Replacement Teams
As the tournament progresses and teams are defeated, there are three opportunities to add replacement teams to your original Lucky 13.

But, there’s a catch! It will cost you a few of your hard earned points.

You will have two replacements available for the second round and another one available for the third round. Once the opportunities expire, you can no longer use them to add teams.

What’s the best strategy to win your league? Add teams? Or, keep all of your points and play with your original Lucky 13?

Use the replacement opportunities wisely (if at all).

1st REPLACEMENT: costs 2 pts.
2nd REPLACEMENT: costs 2 pts.
3rd REPLACEMENT: costs 3 pts.

Good luck!
