Mario Kart 8 Rules

Game Scheduling

All games will be assigned a date and time. If you cannot play during the scheduled timing, coordinate with your opponent to set a new date and time that works for both of you. The dates and times are more guidelines to stay organized. All games must be played and reported by 11:59pm Thursday night


All players must have access to a Nintendo Switch, Mario Kart 8 on the Nintendo Switch and a Nintendo Switch Online account. 

Forfeits and Cancellations

If you can't find a new time to play, the person who couldn't play at the original time forfeits. If your opponent doesn't show or isn't responsive within 30 minute of your scheduled game, it is a forfeit for them. Please submit a score of 100-0. If no score is entered by either team by Thursday at 11:59pm, then it is a double forfeit. Cancellations will not be accepted for this league.


  1. Before each game, message your opponent and make sure you each have your gamertags/network ID's so you can play against each other
  2. 6 races in VS at 150CC
  3. Course Choice: Alternate
    1. Message each other your 3 choices before hand as you will only have 20 seconds to choose in between rounds
  4. No teams
  5. Normal items
  6. All vehicles
  7. Afterwards, submit the final points that you and your opponent had after the 6 races (i.e. 57 points to 50 points)


When reporting the score of the game, teams will also give their opponent a sportsmanship rating based on the following criteria:

  1. 4.0 (4) - Excellent Sportsmanship: Game play was smooth with no issues. Players did not pause the game during a live time and played the entire match. Talking between the opponents was cordial and not demeaning. 
  2. 3.0 (3) - Average Sportsmanship: Game play was mostly smooth. There were minimal instances of "trash talk" and it did not become vulgar or extreme. Games were paused for extended periods of time.
  3. 2.0 (2) - Below Average Sportsmanship: An excessive amount of trash talking throughout the game. Poor connection or lagging by the opponent.
  4. 1.0 (1) - Poor Sportsmanship: Communcation was aggressive and vulgar and borderline abusive. General unsportsmanlike gameplay.
  5. 0.0 (0) - Team quit the match during the middle of the game, extremely abusive and vulgar communication.

Players who receive three ratings at or below a 2 will be disqualified from further competition. A rating of a 1 or a 0 will require a meeting with the Intramural Sports staff prior to the next scheduled game.
