The ability to make a game enjoyable for your opponent, win or lose, is a key component of the hobby. It is also critical to the success of a tournament. To recognize this, sportsmanship will factor into the Best Overall and Best Sportsmanship awards and will be one of the tie-breakers for other awards.
After each game, each player will award their opponent 1 or 2 Sportsmanship Points based on their experience and how it applies to the suggested (but certainly not comprehensive) guidelines below.
Obviously, your opponents list design or the fact you won or lost should not factor into your sportsmanship score.
