We’ve limited the tracks recommended to non-DLC tracks so players with any version of Mario Kart 8 will be prepared and comfortable!

15 initial 4-player races with the following stages and rules and the top player advancing will whittle us down to 15 competitors, assuming we start with the full 60. If not, we can always alter initial pools accordingly.

Mario Kart Stadium
Sunshine Airport
Rainbow Road

All characters and karts legal
No teams
Items: Frantic
Com: Normal
Com vehicles: All
Courses: Choose
Race count: 3 Races

After this we’ll likely do another smaller wave of pools depending on entrant count due to time constraints. I’d recommend the following stages and settings for this:

Thwomp Ruins
Shyguy Falls

All characters and karts legal
No teams
Items: All
Com: Normal
Com vehicles: All
Courses: Choose
Race count: 3 Races

Mario Kart Tournament finals:

Bone Dry Dunes
Bowser’s Castle
Mount Wario
All characters and karts legal
Items: All
Com: None
Courses: Choose
Race count: 3 Races

Our Mario Kart Tournament rulesets are designed to be a little more hectic (and lower speed) early on to appeal more to casual/newer players. We want everyone to have a great time, from casual to hardcore!

This is an amazing show! Games Done Legit is proud to partner with America’s Tim Cornett and Kevin Jackson projections!
