The Divisions

The Hops vs. The Drops

You’ve played a couple of games and know the game, but this is your first time being competitive. You’re here to play, but first and most importantly, you’re here to have fun and you might even be indulging in the hops (hey, we’re not judging).

This isn’t your first rodeo, you might even have a few tournaments under your belt. You want to test your skills in a safe and friendly environment, or you’re pretty good but can’t turn down a chance to pickle. You’re more focused on the drops than the hops - but won’t say no to a hop or two.
