2nd ANNUAL FOUNTAIN PEN
Hosted by: ATLAS STATIONERS
The 2nd Annual March Madness Fountain Pen Tournament hosted by Atlas Stationers is here! 64 of the community’s favorite fountain pens will square off head-to-head tournament style!
The tournament will feature four regions of 16 unique fountain pens. Each region is named after the Atlas Family: King Atlas, Momma T, Vice Prezi, & Hollywood.
On February 22nd at 10:00am CST, the Atlas Family will conduct a 16 round snake draft on Instagram and Tik Tok Live to determine the four regions and our “teams”. The draft order will be selected at random and each round will be in reverse order (i.e. last player to draft in round one will draft first in round two). Once the fountain pens have been drafted, the pens will be placed randomly within the regions.
Overview: Atlas Stationers is excited to present the 2nd Annual Fountain Pen Tournament Challenge! Fill out the tournament bracket, submit it, and have a chance to win big prizes.
How to Play: Find the bracket here and determine your champion! Each round will consist of “games” between two of the community’s favorite fountain pens. Choose the winner for each game and move that pen to the next round. Continue until your champion pen is selected.
*Please note once you submit your prediction bracket you will not be able to make changes. If you submit your bracket and need to make a change please email our customer service team - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submit your bracket by Monday, March 7, 2022 to be eligible to win. At the sole discretion of Atlas Stationers, incorrectly filled out brackets may be voided. Limit of one bracket submission per person.
How the Winner of Each Game Will be Chosen: Participants will vote for their favorite pen in each matchup (see voting schedule below). The pen that receives the majority vote will move on to the next round. For example, let’s say the first game in the “King Atlas” region is ‘PEN A’ versus ‘PEN B’. If more participants vote for ‘PEN A’ over ‘PEN B’, ‘PEN A’ wins and will advance to the next round. For each correct “game” picked, points will be awarded to your bracket’s overall score.
