7 Point Highlander has been played across Australia and New Zealand for 20+ years. It is a competitive 60 card singleton format (15 card sideboard) which uses the vintage ban list and in addition a points system. Only 7 points are allowed per deck, and changes to the points list are made by the Points Committee to promote the health of the format. Announcement of changes, if any, take place on the release of each new standard legal set (once every 3 months).

If you are new or a veteran player there are a number of resources to get you going, including the official Podcast (see tab above).

Recent decklists can be found in the forums: http://www.auseternal.com/forums/forum/highlander-decklist-discussion/

And there is also a video series that provides primers and Deck Techs on the 30+ viable archetypes in 7 Point Highlander:
