Rivals of Aether
Game version: Steam]
3 stocks, 8 minute timer, Aether stages “off”
Characters for the first game are chosen double-blind (at the same time). For successive matches,
the winner chooses their character first, and then the loser chooses their character.
The first game’s stage is selected using 1-2-1 stage striking. Subsequent games in the series use
winner-strikes-two. When choosing stages, a player cannot return to any stage they have previously
won on without the consent of their opponent (Dave’s stupid rule).
