Lord of the Kings Tournament: Dwarfs, Orcs, Elves and Hobbits!

September 21st, 2012

Yesterday was the last day of the Discovery College Squad practicing at Caissa. We held a team-tournament-with-snacks with 4 teams playing for the title “Lord of the Rings/Kings”.

The four teams of 5 players playing in Lord of the Kings

The teams:

  • Dwarfs: Miguel-Angel, Bryant, Max, Franz and Julien
  • Orcs: Wilson, Lucas, Ask, Manon and Kaiden
  • Elves: Ruaidhri, Mees, Krijn, Chor Wei and Etienne
  • Hobbits: Aryan Shetty, Vaibhav, Jonathan, Mei Jing and Henry

It must have been somewhat hectic to our first time visitors Ask and Kaiden but despite being overwhelmed a bit, they did quite well.

In round 1 the Dwarfs narrowly beat the Hobbits with 3-2 and the Elves beat the Orcs with 3-1.

In round 2 the two winners met and resulted in the Dwarfs dwarfing the Elves with a 4-1 score. The Orcs had recovered from their earlier loss and beat the Hobbits 3.5-1.5. After two rounds the ranking was: Dwarfs 7 points, Orcs 4.5 points, Elves 4 points and Hobbits 3.5 points.

Round 3 was the decisive sound. The Orcs put up a strong fight against the Dwarfs and held them at a drawing 2-2 score. The Elves beat the Hobbits 3-1 but could not bridge the gap with the Dwarfs anymore.

End result:

  1. Dwarfs: 9 points – the Lord of the Kings Prize (Oriole cookies) winners!
  2. Elves: 7 points
  3. Orcs: 6.5 points
  4. Hobbits: 4.5 points
