Aganju: I would say it is because Gabriel Almeida is already in a Backgammon Team Tourny for the Untouchables.....
Here - Happy Groundhog Day 2017! (Backgammon) XXII

As the result of that tourny is already sorted, i wuold say if you message Fencer he will let Gabriel enter the new one, though only Fencer has the power to solve the issue

MadMonkey: For some reason, we cannot sign up for the Backgammon team Tournament (Knights); it says: "Your team does not have enough players eligible to play team tournaments (Brain Knight or higher level)." which is untrue - we have six players, five rooks and one Knight.
Any idea, anyone?

Brfs 11th Annual St. Pat's Pente Tourney

THERE'S ONLY 20 HOURS LEFT TO SIGN UP!

I don't know how much longer we can do this with the uncertainty of brainking's future but I'm going ahead and doing it for 2017 while we can. I've only allowed a tight 48 hour signup window for this "11th annual" so whomever signs up by midnight 3/17/17 will be able to participate. please join in for one more installment of the "Brfs St Patricks Day Pente Tournament"

This years St Pat's Tourney has the best settings based on 10 years of tweaks for speed while ensuring a solid challenge to all players.

As usual this is a prize tournament with 1 year Brain Rook awarded to the winner. The section size has been set at 6 people per section, so pawns will need to have 10 open game slots at start time (or risk being auto-removed)! Time limits are set at 1 day 9hrs per move with vacation allowed.....anything more and we risk whatever uncertainty the websites future may have. I don't want that, and ideally I'd like the winner to be able to use the prize.

With the use of a tight 48hr signup window, we should get a relatively small tournament this year which also should help speed things along.

My thanks to all of you who continue to sign up for this tournament every year, I can't believe we're already on the 11th one! Do you feel you have the Pente luck of the Irish this year? well sign up and see how far you can battle your way through the grids! On St.Patricks Day (March 17, 2017) the tourney begins!

Good luck to all players!

furbster: Yes and that was what made me cross. Also both parties could have been courteous and made me aware of the problem before ending the game. I most likely would have resign the game to save time. But I am never sure if you resign a game in a tournament if you end the match.

in the past I remember having post the same request for a manual brake and the admin always made one. but as my opponents who were informed through message didn't complain either i need to assume that all of us weren't aware of this rule... Thank you coan

About that game - it SHOULD NOT have been ended as there was still a chance for a tie game - as white still had a piece on their home position. So if black could have made it to pin that piece, then the game would end as a tie/draw. [In this game, black was in no position to do that..... but that is in the rules]

All white needed to do was move that last home piece and the game should have ended automatically, so I'm not sure why they needed Fencer to finish it when you could have done it simply yourself.

Game rules: http://brainking.com/en/GameRules?tp=109&fwa=ArchivedGame!g=7521441

"The only exception is if the opponent still has checkers on his starting point, since in this case his own mother checker is still threatened. A game in which both mothers are pinned is a draw."
