- Note: this document is outdated and some things are not accurate. Sirlin said he'd eventually updated it. To quote Sirlin :
"[that document] is old and some things are now wrong, especially about Flash Duel. Tournament rounds for Flash Duel probably need to be longer than it says. And match ties should use who advanced farthest in the final round to break ties. If that tie-break fails, players should play another round, not another entire game. I'm not sure what else is outdated, so there should probably be disclaimers if you post that."Sirlin also shared some information about tournaments:

Places you can announce your tournamentEdit
- BoardGameGeek.com Pandante forums
- Reddit Fantasy Strike sub-reddit
The Pandante wiki
You can add your tournament to the Tournaments page.
Local games stores
You could announce tournaments at your local game stores (maybe with permission from the store owner you could put up a notice about it on some sort of notice board).
If your local gamestore offers a space for playing games but you don't yet have a Pandante community group in your area (regardless of how large or small it is), perhaps you could host a Yomi demo event (perhaps in conjunction with the store) to introduce people to it.
Once your local Yomi community develops, you might be able to hold a tournament.

Examples of successful tournamentsEdit
A full list of Yomi tournaments (that we know about), along with some tournament reports, can be found on the Tournaments page.
Below are notable examples of successful Yomi tournaments.
That's not to say that the tournaments couldn't be improved, but they serve as a good reference point to give you an idea of the different ways of doing a Yomi tournament, what worked, what didn't, etc.
