# Squares Scoring System
### 1. Scoring of games resulting in a DRAW
(total of scores from a drawn game = 100 points)
- At the end of the game each player will score points equal to the
square of the centres they hold. (For example, 5 centres = 25 points,
15 centres = 225 points).
- All points from a draw game will be standardized and converted (calculated
as a percentage of the sum of scores from that game) so that the total
of player scores from a drawn game equals 100 points.
### 2. Scoring of games resulting in an 18 centre WIN
(total of scores from an 18 centre win = 100 points)
- The winning player will score 100 points.
- All losing players will score zero.
### 3. Tournament results
At the end of the tournament, scores from each player's games will be
added together and the player with the most points declared the winner.
Tie-breakers will be used to separate players on equal points, with the
following tie-breakers used in order:
- The player with the most wins.
- The player included in the most drawn games.
- The player with the better 'best' game.
- The player with the better 'second best' game.
- The player with the better 'third best' game.
If two or more players cannot be split after using tie-breakers then
they are considered to have finished equal.
### 4. Comparing Games
Games will be compared in the following order for tie-breakers, including
tie-breaking best country awards. If a condition cannot split two players
then the next condition is used.
- Win beats Draw beats Elimination beats Loss (Therefore a game where
a player loses will be considered below an Elimination or Draw even
though more tournament points may be gained).
- Points from game.
- Position finished in game based on centres (1st, 2nd 3rd etc.)
(Note an equal 1st is considered behind an outright 1st but ahead
of a 2nd. Also the more players finishing equal the less it is worth.
e.g. Equal 2nd with 2 players is better than equal 2nd with 3).
- If both eliminated, longest survival based on fall supply centres.
- Highest score when subtracting the score of the player finishing
1st in that game.
- Same for 2nd to 7th (zero used for eliminated players).
