GammonZone Tournament Information

GammonZone points are earned in every tournament we run, as shown below.

Tournaments are awarded bonus points on a sliding scale based on match length, and roughly correspond to the same point value per time invested in the playing of the matches. (ie., 3 point matches earn 2 GammonZone points, 7 point matches earn 4 GammonZone points, etc.)  

GammonZone points are earned in every tournament we run, as shown below.

If your player name is spelled incorrectly, please let us know via email.  If you have previously played under various nicknames and wish to combine those points under one name, please send email requesting this one-time-only change.  

GammonZone points are earned in every tournament we run, as shown below.

You must play under the name you want the points and ratings recorded.  For more information about this please see our Policies pages.  GammonZone does NOT allow more than one individual to play or earn points on one player nickname.

GammonZone Policy awards GammonZone points to the GammonZone Host in recognition of the time spent hosting (as opposed to playing).  Claiming the host points is up to the individual host, and the scale is as follows:  2 points for co-hosting, 4 points for hosting a regular tournament, 6 points for hosting as a sub, and 8 points for hosting a Tournament of Champions or Gammon Cup.  Hosts of web-based tournaments (such as Medallion series, League, Rumble, Escalera or Grand Slam series tournaments) are awarded points consistent with the time commitment required by the event.
