Entropy WC

Entropy WC

£15

Entropy is a two-player abstract strategic game designed by Eric Solomon in 1977. The game is sold commercially under the names Hyle (for a simplified version played on a 5×5 board) and Hyle7. The game is played on a square 7×7 grid of cells. One player (“Chaos”) draws coloured chips at random from a bag and places each one on the board in an empty space. The other player (“Order”) may slide any chip horizontally or vertically through any number of empty spaces, to rest in a previously empty space. The “Order” player is allowed to pass. When the grid is full, Order scores for any palindromic patterns of chip colours (e.g. “red–green–blue–green–red”) that have been formed horizontally or vertically.

Tournament Format
Swiss Pairings, double round matches (ie players play as both 'order' and 'chaos' in each round)
Rounds - 6
Time Control - 15 minutes per player for both games
Tournament Scoring - Players score tournament victory points based on the score difference at the end of the match

Score difference to Victory Points conversion table - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/18Zd6gGPLjbO0I7hgMxTyeUTnSw6sWbDkv39-V9OWzzw/edit?usp=sharing

Tournament Specific Rules
- Touch move applies to both players. A piece is considered placed by Chaos once it is released.
- When a piece is drawn from the bag it is revealed to both players at the same time.
- Should Order run out of time the Chaos continues drawing and placing pieces but no moves are made.
- Should Chaos run out of time then Order draws and places new pieces, and can make a move after each placement.
- Should both players run out of time then the remaining pieces are placed randomly with no moves taking place.

Oware is an abstract strategy game among the bigger Mancala family of board games (or Pit and Pebbles Games)
