Puzzle General Presents: First Ever Dr. Mario Speedrunning Tournament!


One of the oldest puzzle games around, Dr. Mario has its time to shine as the next tournament in our series. Dr. Mario is a very easy game to learn and the tournament is open for competitors of all skills!


To sign up, you will need a Challonge account and a SpeedRunsLive account. Signups will be hosted on this page until the end of August 21. Races will be done through SpeedRunsLive. SRL is a great platform that provides consistent results and even starting times. Streaming will be required. If any disputes happen, you can contact one of the TOs. EMULATOR IS ALLOWED! We know not everyone will own the game or console, so we want to make it open to anyone. Emulator link below if you do not have one.


Seeding will be determined by leaderboards on speedrun.com or SRL and by opinions on community members. Currently there is not a 0-10 category, but contact Bbforky if there is a time you want to present for it.


There are no streaming details now, but will announce if we get restreamers. If you would like to restream or commentate, contact Bbforky on the discord or Twitter.
