What is an LL MiniLeague? It's like a regular LL season, but shorter, and on one topic.
- MLs last 12 matches. Most MLs end in a one-match playoff; others do not. Either way, the ML will be 12 MDs long.
- Players must register in advance, so participation varies from a minimum of twelve to several hundred.
All the questions share a common topic or theme.
Forfeits, wins, and losses will not affect contestants’ regular season statistics -- however, players are subject to Rule 19.3 regarding forfeiting.
Standings ties are broken per regular LL method, found in Section 8.5 of the Official Rules.
ML matches are structured exactly like regular LL matches -- 6 questions, defense, due time, etc.
All LL members in good standing are eligible to join any ML.
The upcoming ML schedule is found within the Upcoming LearnedLeague Contests section of the LL home page. Registration for a given ML typically opens a few weeks before the start of the ML season.
