Each player then takes fifteen blocks and turns the blocks so that only they see what's on them. They take turns placing the blocks into a two-dimensional pyramid-shaped structure, again seeing only their blocks, then they take turns removing any one block from the pyramid and placing it into one of three poker hands that they're constructing. Each poker hand is competing against the one opposite it that's being built by the opponent. Once all the blocks have been removed, the player who wins two or three of the poker hands wins! The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, a free badge for Gen Con 2019, free crash space for 3 nights (with up to 3 other winners) at Gen Con 2019, plus a seat at the final round of the U.S. National Championship at Gen Con 2019!
