For this variant you will need to create pairs of identical decks, making enough decks to accommodate the number of players in the first round. The players are allowed five minutes to review their decks, placing cards in any order they desire. Decks are not shuffled before play begins. After the game, ask players to make sure that the decks contain identical cards again, preparing them for the next players to order in the way they choose. This works best as a single-elimination, one-game-per-round tournament and removes all luck from the game, as both players have the same cards and can arrange their cards in the order they think will be most effective.
this variant the person making the decks should make two copies of each
deck. You may use different deck for each table but the people playing
each other must use the same copy of a deck.
is no sideboard for this variant.
