Here is how the debate will be set up

1 vs. 8
2 vs. 7
3 vs. 6
4 vs. 5

1, 2, 3, and 4 will be Rightists, and 5, 6, 7, and 8 will be Leftists.

There will only be one round to this debate tournament UNLESS 2 Rightists and 2 Leftists win. Otherwise, there will be four winners. And likewise, there will only be two rounds UNLESS 1 Rightist and 1 Leftist win in the second round. I am only expecting one round for this debate.

Here is the sign-up sheet:

Rightists:
1:
2:
3:
4:

Leftists:
5:
6:
7:
8:

This is on a first come first serve basis.

RULES: I have no set tournament rules. The two debaters get to set their own rules. I am just instigating this debate.

Where do the libertarians go?

I seemed to have not made this clear. Libertarians go with the rightists. Sorry. I don't want more than two types of debaters until later.

It's basically rightists vs. leftists. The two debaters can pick ten topics to debate in one debate.

I don't think I do. But besides that, what do you mean by the "ten topics" thing?

Well you you sign up for say the number 3 seed (the rightist side), and someone fills the number 6 seed (the leftist side), you instigate a debate (because you are the higer seed), and you can provide your opponent with any number of topics, and your opponent chooses one or more of them. Get it?
