Your challenge in Lucky Numbers is to fill your grid first, but you never know which tiles you’ll have to work with!
To set up, take a set of tiles numbered 1-20 for each player in the game, then shuffle all of these tiles face down. Each player has a 4×4 grid, and to complete set up, each player takes four tiles at random, then places them in order from low to high down the diagonal that goes from upper left to lower right.
On a turn, you take either a face-down tile from the pile or a face-up tile from the table. You can (1) place this tile in an empty space in your grid, (2) swap this tile for a tile already in the grid, or (3) discard this tile face-up on the table. However, all tiles in your grid must obey one rule at all times: A tile must be higher in value that any tile directly above it or to its immediate left and lower in value that any tile directly below it or to its immediate right. Whoever first fills their grid with sixteen tiles wins. (If the draw pile runs out, then whoever has the most tiles in their grid wins.)

This tournament will be played using the BoardGameArena (BGA) tournament system. Signed up players will receive an email one day before the tournament inviting them to follow a link to register to the tournament on BGA. You will need to do this in order to secure your place in the draw and this cannot be done sooner than 1 day before the tournament (this helps to avoid players being in the draw who do not show up for the tournament). Players who do not have 100 ELO points in the game on BGA will not be able to join the tournament without the email invitation so please make sure you have registered here on the MSO website 48 hours before the tournament. We may not be able to get you into the tournament after the invitations have been issued.
When playing in the tournament on BGA please ensure that you join each of your matches promptly as any player who misses the start of a round will automatically be withdrawn from the tournament. When a new round is drawn a bar should appear at the top of the page on BGA inviting you to join your match (you may need to refresh to see it). Follow this to join your table and play your game. We are unable to add players back into the tournament who miss a round or accomodate late entries for this tournament.
