- Contestants may enlist the help of anyone except Eric Tessler to setup their stream.
- Contestantís stream quality must be sharp enough to read the level and score at a glance (as well as the rest of the game play).  If there is ANY question of score and level due to bad quality stream, that submission will be rejected, instantly, with no exceptions. I suggest that you test your streams and check them from time to time to make sure they are working correctly.

- Contestant is solely responsible for submitting their own scores.
- DK arcade or DK MAME (US set 1) can both be used for score submissions (must use TG settings of 3 lives and a bonus life at 7000 points).
- Score submissions can be for any non-zero score.
- At the start of EACH new stream, contestant must state their full name (you no longer have to state your name before every single game).

   * A contestant can only be paid for a maximum of 1 bounty for any one contest.
   * If a submitted game qualifies for more than 1 bounty, the contestant is solely responsible for specifying which bounty they are claiming and they can only claim a single bounty (and the refs will consider only the specified bounty for the score submission). For example, if I have a game where I am the first to a million points and a kill screen, I claim the million point bounty and the kill screen bounty remains open for other contestants to claim.
   * If a contestant tries to claim a bounty however is not awarded that bounty for some reason (i.e., they were incorrect about the bounty or another contestant's score submission invalidates their bounty claim), the contestant may try to claim another bounty on one of their next score submissions.
   * Bounties are considered in the order in which the score submissions are received.
   * Please remember that the bounty system was introduced for fun and to spread around some extra money to the contestants. Any disputes over the bounties will be settled accordingly by Eric.

Great stuff!  Looking forward to this event.

Since you are taking bounty ideas, I have a thought.

This would work basically like a Mystery Bounty in that a player would not have to specifically submit or claim this bounty, but would become eligible for it just by registering, participating and submitting a score to the tournament scoreboard.

The concept is a "Lottery" bounty.  At the end of the tournament, players who submitted a score for the tournament scoreboard but who did not receive other prize money (or other bounty money?) will receive a certain number of lottery balls, or entries into the lottery.  These entries are then all placed into a "hat" where the organizer then draws the winning ticket (or tickets!) from this large pool of entries and the prize money is given to that player.  The number of entries given to each player depend on how far up the scoreboard they placed in the tournament.  So, for example, last place could receive 1 entry, 2nd to last gets 2 entries, then 3, 4, 5 and so on.  Or perhaps it should go 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 and so on.  Or some other "curve" which awards the higher scoring players a proportionally higher number of entries.

The idea here is that each final placement that a player moves up on the scoreboard has real tangible value.  There is also real value in submitting a score in the first place, even if it's one that you are not happy about!  The second benefit is that every player now has something to play for as every player will be given at least some chance to win prize money (outside of mystery prizes which often award money to a random placement on the board, which does not necessarily promote giving your best effort or working your way up the leader board the way that this idea should). 

Obviously the details could be refined however the organizers see fit, but hopefully you get the idea of how this could benefit the tournament and the entire player pool in general.
