TYPES OF COMPETITIONS
& SCHEDULE

HIGH SCORE DAILY (HSD)

The attendee who scores the most points on the chosen game wins a prize for each day the competition occurs. (HSD) daily competitions are intended to be simple, fast, fun, and occasionally silly. Attendees may enter as many times as they wish at no cost. Bring your friends and compete amongst yourselves or come alone and see where you rank!

HEAD TO HEAD (H2H)

(H2H) tournaments utilize a standard sporting bracket where attendees compete against one another and advance through a series of identical rounds until a champion is declared. (H2H) tournaments are slightly more intense than the more leisurely (HSD) competitions but are still intended as a fun, introductory experience for attendees of all skill levels.

MAIN EVENT (MAIN)

Main events are the premier competitions promoted and managed by Replay FX. The format for each of these competitions is customized and designed to support high level competition for each chosen game. Come ready to compete!
