The ACC's Internet Cribbage Program gives members an opportunity to play in online tournaments, earn rating points, and compete for annual and lifetime awards.
ACC Internet Cribbage is organized into an annual season ending each year on July 31. Each season consists of 6 to 9 weekly tournaments with Grass Roots 9 game style (like weekly club) played at eCribbage.com, amd Best of 3 bracketed (like weekend tourney playoffs) played at GameColony.com. Players with high enough scores in each tournament earn Internet Rating Points(IRPs), which are tabulated separately from MRPs and Grass Roots rating points. The ten players earning the most IRPs during the season form an official All-Internet team. The player in first place is crowned Internet Champion. Awards are given at the annual awards banquet at Grand National.
Due to legal considerations, there are no cash prizes for winners of ACC internet tournaments. There are also no entry fees nor side pools. What we do offer is bona fide competition in a sportsmanlike environment, friendly opponents that you may know from live play, and a legitimate rating and awards system administered by the game's preeminent sanctioning organization.
Follow these steps:
The ACC does not guarantee the confidentiality of members' real names. Tournament results and IRP standings will be published on this website and in Cribbage World, and players will be identified by both their real name and their screen name. In addition, this website has a link to identify players at both tournament sites. On the ACC Community Facebook page, the results posting will only list the players' screen name.
Except for real name/screen name info, your ACC membership information will be kept strictly confidential. The ACC does not publish the email address, mailing address or phone number of its members without their permission nor does it make that information available to third parties.
ACC Tournament Directors (TDs) are held to a very high standard. To be a TD at either hosting site, you must first become a player in good standing, over a period of time. In addition, you must have TD experience and be approved by the ACC Internet Commissioner. At eCribbage, this usually involves going through training to first be a "greeter". The next step involves progressive TD training under the direction of the Site Director of eCribbage. When both the eCribbage Site Director and the ACC Internet Commissioner feel you are capable of being a TD for the ACC, additional training will be set up, including being an "exit greeter" for the Best of 3 single elimination tournaments before being an ACC TD.
At Game Colony, use the "Contact Us" link to express your interest. TDs are granted special privileges that help them moderate the lobby environment. Under the Gamecolony.com rules, only these individuals are allowed to host events in the tournament rooms. (The ACC Room is not considered an GC Tournament Room.) Game Colony rules prohibit TDs from using their TD identity as an ACC tournament player.
Since the ACC does not run the cribbage gaming software, but simply uses host sites to conduct ACC tournaments, we generally cannot help you with technical questions about their gaming software. Please note that both sites may "freeze", which usually is solved by logging out and back in. The TD has no control over this happening, but may be forced to remove you from the tournament (disqualify you) if you are gone too long, or too many times.
