For Sindbad Cup, I decided to have two kinds of flavorpoints. Unique achievements that only one player can fulfill, and checkbox achievements that multiple players can and hopefully want to fulfill:

Checkbox Achievements for Sindbad Cup Reference Points
Destroyed an Island 1st voyage 1
Played a creature with flying 2nd voyage 1
At least 1 Sindbad in the deck 3rd voyage 1
At least 7 AN cards in maindeck* 4th voyage 1
Control an opponents’ creature 5th voyage 1
Connect because of landwalk 6th voyage 1
Activated Bottle of Suleiman 7th voyage 1
Each City in a Bottle in Main/Side Gentlemen -1
Each Strip Mine more than 2 in Main/Side Gentlemen -1
Unique achievements for Sindbad Cup*** Prize Card Points
Least lands in MD Islandfish Jasconius 2
Most different lands (names) in MD Merchant Ship 2
Most whiteborder cards in MD Bottle of Suleiman (signed) 2
Most artifacts in the MD Serendib Efreet (fwb) 2
Best unpowered after Swiss Old Man of the Sea 2
Longest Travel (km) Sandals of Abdallah 2
Most subgames won Flying Men + Bird Maiden 2
Most cards originally from Arabian Nights** Flying Carpet (signed) 3

Example: Istvan destroyed 3 Islands in the event (+1 Destroy Island), cast a Flying Men (+1 Flying) and gained control over their opponent’s Devouring Deep (+1 Gain Control) which then connected because they had an Island (+1 Islandwalk). Istvan also played 21 non-Mountain cards originally printed in Arabian Nights (+3 and a signed Flying Carpet). Istvan has a total of 7 flavorpoints. Destroying more Islands or casting Flying Men again and again won’t gain Istvan more points.

Example: The brothers Ali and Quasim both travelled from Bagdad to the event, longer than anyone else. Both will win the 2 flavorpoints bonus for that, but the prize card Sandals of Abdallah can be given to only one of them (Swiss standing).

Side activities

“Ali Baba and the Erg Raiders”
Ali Baba and his brother Quasim found the secret cave of the evil 43 Erg Raiders. A number of players will play against the Erg Raiders in a One (Erg Raider) vs. Four-Six(Players = Ali Baba) Horde style game. Bring your Oldschool deck to win an Arabian Nights Erg Raiders.

Moat and City in a Bottle are obviously banned. It was kind of fair-balanced with 42 Erg Raiders and 12 non-Erg Raider cards Horde style

Chaos Orb Flip Contest
After many hours of Old School, with 1-2 or more hours to come for the travel home for many, I decided to not run a Chaos Orb Flip contest on Sunday.

On Saturday evening, we met at Kamin for a contest in smaller circle however. Anna, the artist of the famous 5/5 Djinn token won said contest.
