Mini-Game Champions is an 8-episode Patreon-exclusive mini-game tournament series hosted by Daniel Bloodworth which has the Allies going up against each other in three rounds of competition in order to crown a mini-game champion.

History

The new show premiered[1] on October 21, 2020 during the week-long Patron Party 2020 event. The first episode was made available to the public with subsequent episodes being released exclusively to $1 and up patrons. As an additional bonus for patrons, they can shape the competition by submitting suggestions for mini-games they should play and tiebreaker scenarios.[2]

Due to the time needed to collect suggestions and upcoming next-gen coverage, a slight delay was expected for the rollout of the rest of the season. However, the production delay was extended even further due to other projects. The rollout for the remaining episodes of Season 1 was planned for release after Achieve It Yourself! Season 3 wrapped up. The first episode rerun was posted on Patreon on May 25, 2021 to catch people up on the tournament while the rest of Season 1 released weekly.

On September 3, 2021, Easy Allies hosted a special live edition of Mini-Game Champions during Easy Chillin' to resolve the lost tiebreakers from the first season and crown a new Easy Chillin' Mini-Game Champion.

Format

The mini-game competition is held in a three-round single-elimination bracket format. Each matchup has the Allies competing in two different mini-games from various video games chosen by Bloodworth and the community. In the event of a tie, a special tiebreaker mini-game is played. Losers will be knocked out of contention until the next season. Following the first episode, mini-games and rules were suggested by $1 and up patrons.

For the Tournament Finals, the Allies instead had to compete in a mini-game marathon instead with an allotment of runbacks provided to re-do any specific mini-game. Season 1 culminated in a final face-off between the Mini-Game Champion and Mini-Game Master.
