I'm going on down to Yasgur's farm
I'm going to join in a rock 'n' roll band
I'm going to camp out on the land
I'm going to try an' get my soul free

Rock Block's summer 2019 tournament celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock festival that became a landmark event in American culture. Each victory in a tournament concert will earn a player a ticket to see another performance on the Woodstock stage. Once a player has seen all 33 performances, that player will become the winner and receive a prize! Joni Mitchell's heartfelt tribute to the festival further informs the tournament theme.

Rules

Concerts: Woodstock tournament concerts (not to be confused with Woodstock theme concerts) will be started automatically. Every pair of active players will face off simultaneously, with a brief delay between concerts. The challenger and defender will be randomly assigned. The Overtime play rule will ensure that there are no draws, but the other play rules and the artists in each concert will be randomly selected based on what each pair of players has available to them. These concerts will use the None trade rule and expire after seven days of inactivity. Winning or drawing in these concerts will not result in ranks of new artists in the Collection Guide, since participation in the tournament already does so (see Prizes below), but they will count towards achievements such as "win fifty concerts."

Performances: The goal of the tournament is to attend all 33 performances from the original Woodstock, including the opening invocation by Swami Satchidananda. Each tournament concert offers the winner a ticket to attend another performance. The performance that can be attended by the winner is randomly selected and displayed on the concert page from the beginning. The random selection is weighted in favor of players who are further behind, who have a higher chance of the ticket being one that they still need. As soon as the concert is won, the ticket is automatically activated, and the performance will appear on this page as a photograph in place of the performer's name in the scoreboard for that player.

Victory: The first player who has attended all 33 performances will be declared the winner. As of that moment, whoever has attended the second-most will be declared the runner up, whoever attended the third-most will be declared third place, and so on. Concerts that have already started can play out, but will no longer affect the scores.


Prizes

The champion will receive a $50 Amazon gift card by email and a small trophy.

The champion will also receive 50 ranks of new artists in the Collection Guide. The second-place player will receive 40 ranks of new artists, the third-place player will receive 30 ranks, and all other participating players will receive 20 ranks.

Every participating player will receive a copy of Joni Mitchell in their label, and unlock the Overtime play rule if they don't have it already. The first 20 participating players will also receive a free copy of Aquarius, the hippie card game.

A "participating player" is defined as playing at least one turn in a "Woodstock" tournament concert.
