14. Competition Introduction

Competition Introduction

You and your teammates will decide on what you want a competition looks like. 

You will decide together and your instructor will help you with any problems that may come up. 

Example of Mario Kart Competition Rules

  • VS Mode
  • Mode: 100cc Race
  • Teams: No Teams
  • Items: Normal Items
  • COM: Normal COM
  • COM Vehicles: All Vehicles
  • Courses: Choose
  • Race Count: 4 Races

Example of Super Smash Bros Competition Rules

  • Smash Tourney
  • 2 or 3 stock
  • 5- 7 minute time limit
  • No CPU 
  • Items and spirits are turned to off and none.
  • No pausing or staling
  • If time runs out, the winner is determined by remaining stock, and then by ending damage percentage.
  • If both stock and percentage are identical, or a game ends with both players being KO’d simultaneously, then a tiebreaker is played. A tiebreaker is a 1 stock, 3 minute match with the same characters and the same stage.

Tracking System Suggestions

  • Create a tracking system with your teammates to determine how you will rank players at the end of each round. 
  • An easy way is to use a bracket system. Super Smash has its own bracket system if you use the “Tournament” mode. 
  • Use a random name generator to help determine who will play for each round. 

Competition Practice Time!

  • Now we will take some time to play Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros and practice the rules we set for each of the games.
  • Don’t forget about the Core Values and Common Sense Media lessons we have learned about and practice them as you play today. 
  • Be sure to focus today and show good sportsmanship even if you don’t win. There will be more time to practice. 

Sketch & Tell Exit Ticket

  • Sketch: How you felt playing in the competition practice.
  • Tell: How you showed good sportsmanship today.
