Players who are unsatisfied with their score in one preliminary may return to compete in any other preliminary rounds held.

Semifinals and Final (Saturday morning/afternoon)

After all games in the preliminaries have been completed, players will be ranked based on scores. The top 16 players will move to the semi-finals, which will be held on Saturday. Each person will play one game of Catan. The winner of each game will advance to final round and play a single game of Catan.
