Why do I seem to have no games as mono red?

Because I didn’t worry about keeping the Hares balanced across their deck choices - I just pulled a random one for each match.

I went ahead and added some extra games to make up for some of the slower Tortoises. If you now have 3 games and want to wait for your lagging game to finish, just say so in the game thread, and I’ll give your opponent another game.

Half-way point standings for the top 4 slots:

Top Tortoise - the Tortoise with the most wins:

  1. Anemone (5)
  2. Mooseknuckles (4)
  3. petE (4)
  4. Jadiel (3)
  5. PointyFinger (3)
  6. YoungBuck (3)
  7. petE (3)
  8. cstick (3)

Top Hare - the Hare with the most wins, counting only matches in the Hare vs. Hare round-robin

  1. EricF (3)
  2. Marto (2) - note that the match between EricF and Maro is ongoing, and will likely decide this slot!

Best Win % - the player, regardless of animal, with the highest percentage of matches won (Minimum 4 matches completed)

  1. Marto - 100%
    1a. Jadiel - 100% (only 3 matches completed)
  2. Mooseknuckles - 80%

Designer’s Intent - a player who used only a single mono-color (no neutrals) deck for all matches, and did not have a match adjudicated against them for delay of game. (Minimum 4 matches completed)

  1. Anemone (5-2)
  2. Jadiel (3-0)
  3. zhavier (3-2)
  4. FrozenStorm (2-2)

  1. Marto (5-0) as a Hare
  2. Anemone (5-2) as a Tortoise
  3. Mooseknuckles (4-1) as a Tortoise
