DFWM League

2016/2017 Pilot League now registering (closed)

General Information

Information and attendance on each league event will be managed on our Facebook page. If you are unable to accommodate this and would still like to participate, please contact me at dfwriichi@gmail.com.

At each scheduled event, we will only open enough tables as there are players to fill them; this is the unfortunate difficulty in organizing a four player game. Seats will be allocated on a first confirmed, first seated basis on the group event page unless it is agreed there is a need to prioritize a player who hasn’t recorded enough scores. With that in mind, please do not hesitate to confirm for an event. It is possible that someone may drop out the day before and it would be good to have backup.

If you have confirmed a seat and do not show up on time the day of, a penalty will be assessed.

  • Players are responsible for recording a minimum of 14 hanchan over the course of the season.
  • At end of season, the worst 4 scores will be dropped from each player’s record and rankings adjusted accordingly. This allows for some flexibility in attendance and bad days at the table.
