The 2018 Championships will last for 5 rounds of 4 hours each at about 9.00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. There will be a briefing at 8:45 a.m. on the 26th and the Prize-giving at 2.30 p.m. on the 28th. All entrants will be included in all rounds (unless there is a bye). The draw for each round will be in accordance with a modified Chess Swiss System. Entrants may vote on the game selection list below for up to 18 games. Votes 1 to 6 get 3 votes each, votes 7 to 12 get 2 each and 13 to 18 get 1 each. Ties are broken by the sum of the numbers, lower is better. Games may be included if not on the list only if a balanced scenario is provided before the time of voting. For your vote to count to choose the 12 games and to be eligible for the $50 and $25 cash Handicap Prizes (minimum 16 entrants) ensure your entry is received by CANCON AND your game selection list by Nick and/or Avi by email by Monday 8 January 2018. From the voting, the 12 most popular games from different systems will be selected, scenarios of which will be posted to entrants as soon as possible. Entrants need to be prepared to play only 7 of the 12 games (and usually end up only playing their top 4 games) which they rank after the briefing. If you need a billet please contact Avi direct asap. Fortress Europa will not be chosen if TRC is chosen. The 12 Convention Games voted for are likely to be comprised of 12 of the games asterisked below.  Those with two asterisks were in the last CANCON.
