When the houses of Dwarves used to compete against one another back in the homeland, one of the most favored events was drunken pushball. Why was this a favorite? Because it was required that in order to compete, one had to first get drunk, of course!
We bring this modified event of our beloved pushball to Puddleby now, except we've added more beer!
Teams of 4 exiles will compete against one another for honor and prizes. This event will be a single elimination tournament. If you win, you advance to the next round against another team who has also won. The winning team of the tournament will get the First Place Score, the second place the Second Place score, the two teams that will be tied for third get the Third Place score, and the four teams tied for 4th get the Fourth Place score (see the scoring scrolls). There will be no score awarded to the Fifth Place team in this event. The more you win, the more beer you get to drink. BEER!!!
Ok, so getting down to business. Each team, at the start of the pushball, will be required to drink four (4) beers per exile (16 beers per team). The first team to score 3 points wins. Every two (2) minutes after the start, time will be called and both teams must come drink 2 more beers per exile (8 beers per team). Should the event last more than 16 minutes (all times ooc), the event will be called over, and the team with the most points wins. Should there be a tie at this point, a sudden death round will be played in which both teams will compete sober and the first team to score a point wins. Sudden death, sober, quite fitting if you ask me!!! Please also see the Rules section below.
