-----------------------------------
Yolympics is a multi-game, team-based competition. Players will compete on many games during the event, and their rank will be measured by their performance across the multiple titles in competition. This is a team-based event, meaning the team with the best overall performance will win. Within each team, their top N scores for each game will earn leaderboard points.
-----------------------------------
Winter Yolympics 2023 will feature 20 games:
-- Four games with the most votes from each of four categories based on release year (16)
-- Four games with the most votes from a Wildcard category (4)

The year-based categories will use a ban list that includes games from ALL past Yolympics events.
The Wildcard category will use a ban list that includes games from the past FOUR Yolympics events.
-----------------------------------
Adjucation: MAME INP or Video Link

MAME Versions Accepted: WolfMAME 0.183, 0.250

No Sandbagging: Scores must be submitted within 24 hours of play.

Autofire:
There are many arcade games that effectively require long periods of button mashing - often for the full duration of play.
For some games, such as Track & Field, mashing is a primary measure of skill. For other games, such as many shmups, it is not.
Due to the risk of Repetitive Stress Injury involved in this hobby of leisure, Yolympics has adopted a common-sense approach to autofire.

Autofire is generally not allowed, but may be permitted at the organizer's discretion on a per-game basis, following the below guidelines:
1. Skilled play involves button mashing for a substantial portion of the game.
2. Button mashing is not a primary measure of skill for the game.
3. The use of autofire does not trivialize the game.

OK, I nominated Tube Panic.  Here's an easy way to win $1.  I will pay anyone registered for the tournament $1 via Paypal if you record yourself actually playing Tube Panic.
Just show the link to your video playing this game or post an inp of your game play and you get $1.  Easy peasy.  8)

P.S.  You don't actually have to vote for Tube Panic.  I am only paying for you to play the game.

So where can we go vote?

discord

Thanks for that.  I went on and voted.

Jammvyy you have to go onto discord to get the games to vote for.  If you haven't, join the discord.  It can be found at the top of the CAGTournaments front page.

There was something eating everyone
And the sunshine fund was low
We couldn't greet you with a simple hello

Yeah, glad to see an appreciation for the game.
The main problem with the game is a lot of people haven't played it.
It's a great game that has an ending around 20 minutes.
It's a great tourney game if given the chance

I have Spoke out on my teams discord channel about some of the games going to auto fire settings..  I am not really vibing with this.

Auto Firing was always said to be cheating.. If I want to submit my scores to other places i have to have auto fire turned off.

I am not wanting drama in any way.  This is a topic that should have been talked about ahead of time.
