Event Description:
his Stronghold game by Mike Fitzgerald is a trick-taking card game in which players collect Diamonds - not cards bearing that suit, mind you, but rather actual "Diamond Crystals". What makes the game of Diamonds different from other trick-taking card games is that when you cannot follow suit you get a "Suit Action" based on what suit you do play. Suit Actions are also taken by the winner of each trick, as well as at the end of a full Round of play. Whoever has the most points in Diamond Crystals at the end of the game wins! This tournament will feature three preliminary rounds before any elimination. The winner of this tournament gets a trophy, a free membership to Tri-Con Spring and a seat in the quarter final round of the Regional Championship held there.
