    Posted: 08 Oct 2009 at 13:34
Okay, here it is, our first board game tournaments.

We have two of them:

Risk and Chess

Chess tournament mechanism:
Points: win 1 tie 0.5 loss 0
Random placement in a ladder. Winner/loser of contiguous players in the same level switch places after the round.
3 Rounds.

Updated note:
Since we are only are only 3 people playing right now, each will play with each other twice, and the people with the highest points play off each a third game. That is, unless someone else joins the tournament and then we will be even :)

-----------------------
Risk tournament mechanism
Points: 1 + Total_Players - end_position = points
Example: If there are 5 players in the tournament, and a person ends in first place, that person get 1 + 5 - 1 = 5 points.
3 games.

So registration is open until Sunday October 11, 2009. To register, just reply to this post and let me know which tournaments you are signing up for.

Hi, there. We have one more day to register to the tournaments. We need more people to play chess as well

As other people who are already playing games can attest, this takes very little time away from you.

I'll go with Risk as time allows. Should be fun. I really would need to brush up Chess for weeks before attempting to play at all .

Actually, I just realized that I cannot create the game until I know how many people are going to be playing it. So I will create it tomorrow morning :)

The chess game starts today as well. It will have the title, Tournament so that we don't get confuse on what kind of a game it is. :)

Just say this. Oh well looks like I missed the start. I would have liked to play but maybe not such a good idea anyway since I am on holiday in 2 weeks.

Okay, I will include you in the next game. :)

I mean, in the next, non-tournament game that we have. One game just ended. Let me start a thread to see how many people want to play another non-tournament game.

You either get an email telling you that it is your turn, or you check the site and it will tell you.

At the site, it is your turn when there is a green icon turned on.

It takes very, very little time, as long as you stick to playing just one game You can play a turn in less than 5 minutes.

Okay, we are just waiting for SPQR to accept the game, and we can move forward :)

In case that SPQR can't make it, do we have a volunteer to take his spot and play the rest of the tournament?

Shameless bounce.

We need another person who play for the tournament since SPQR hasn't been around.

So whoever else wants to play, just get an account at http://www.conquerclub.com/, right post your user name here, and then wait in your inbox of the account that you used to register for the invite.
