Event Description:
Starting with $49 apiece, players in The Game of 49 bid to buy spaces on the 49-square (7-by-7) game board. Randomly drawn number cards are auctioned one at a time, with the highest bidder placing a chip on the matching board space. Wild/Payoff cards give players a choice of where to place their chip and also award cash to all players for their chips on the board: $7 per chip, with a payoff maximum of $49. The first player to claim four spaces in a row, in any direction, 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.
