What is “Chicago”?
The Chicago format is typically Best of 3 legs and includes the following games: 501 SIDO, Cricket and 301 DIDO. “Traditional Chicago” rules are any game can be chosen for any leg by the starting player, but no game can be played twice.
* Please note that different regions may call “Chicago” by a different name such as “Penguin” and may not follow the same rules as “Traditional Chicago”.

If your league’s match format includes the rules above, follow the instructions below to enable these features in the scoring app.
Note: These settings are “set-specific” and must be applied to each separate set in the AMB that requires them.
This setting makes all games available for deciding legs and is most commonly used for “501-Cricket-Choice” to enable the “choice” of all games for the tie-breaker. DO NOT select this for “Traditional Chicago” which requires the deciding leg to be the game that has not yet been played.
