The Rules of the Game

  • Once you have joined a league and drafted your gymnasts, you are ready to begin playing the game!
  • Each week you will be automatically matched up against another user in your league and compete in a head-to-head matchup
  • Every week you need to set your lineups for each event based on which gymnasts from your roster you think will score the highest during their meets
  • When setting your event lineups, you will put up multiple gymnasts that will accrue scores for your team, increasing your overall team score
    • The number of gymnasts to put up on each lineup is decided by the event lineup size in the league’s settings
  • Only the top scores of your gymnasts on each event lineup will be counted towards your overall team score
    • The number of counting scores per event is decided by the event count size in the league’s settings
  • Once the week is over and all scores have been inputted for the week, the user with the highest team score will win their head-to-head matchup
    • All the gymnasts' scores and final team scores will be automatically updated after every meet
  • Throughout the season, as you win and lose your head-to-head matchups against other users in your league, your season win-to-loss record will be updated accordingly
  • The final rankings will be determined by the teams’ win-to-loss records at the end of the season, and whoever has the best record, wins their league!
