Tab 4.

Select ”Select Card distribution”

“Random” creates randomly the necessary number of boards.

“Select a Replay Game” describes the option where you can select from a list of previous played public available card distributions (and where no tournament details is available for import).

This should be regarded as either:

  • An alternative to a reference tournament as several federations only offer access to card distribution information. We will add information (URL) for the card distributions historic result presentation.
  • As access to the popular public available card distributions easily shared for many to play and compare results – often labelled “simultaneous tournaments”. With a delay (for all to play) results are made public.

Notice – “If you would like to import a card distribution you have on a file then select Random and then after the tournament have been created select each session and select the file to import” – hereby we offer an option to import for example a BRI file with your card own distribution.

As you need might to import different card distributions per session the import takes place here – Click “Import” and select your file with a click on the “Browse” button.

Or if you would like to use the import option – please select “Random” at tab 4 – hereby you also generate card distributions to be used if your import file later have to few card distributions than required by the tournament.

(After you have created the tournament you can import your card distribution here – click the “mport” button. To get a red frame on a Session click on the session.)

This features have been constructed like this to make it possible to have different card distributions per session.
