A tournament is a quest where the player must participate in a chain of challenges, and if any of those challenges are lost then the quest is failed. The player is thrown into an often inescapable set of battles or quests which she must complete before leaving the overarching Tournament quest. These quests are commonly set within arenas.

Variables and Affordances

  • Types of battles/minigames


  • Dragon Age: Origins - The Proving is a tournament in which the player must defeat all opponents. The separate battles between opponents can be seen as the “minigames” and the overarching Proving quest can be seen as the “tournament” quest.


This pattern is inspired by one of the same name in Scriptease's quest patterns library.
