When creating the tournament, if you choose "Random Game" you have to scroll further down and select the games that the random games are chosen from. (Unless you change the drop down to All games?, I think. Then it is a game randomly chosen from All.) Sorry, it's been a while since I've done it.
This one starts today BAH HUMBUG!! #5 There are lots of games that could use some more people. It will stay open for 2 more days for the ones that don't have the minimum. Before that 2 day limit is up, I will sign up for any that have 3 people, so that those tourneys can start
Only one more day. There's a few games that need just ONE more person to join! Hopefully someone will so that those will start. I'll join a few more if I have to, but NOT in any chess or checkers games, definitely... BAH HUMBUG!! #4
Several of the games of BAH HUMBUG!! #2 started tonight. There are 2 more days to sign up for the ones that didn't have enough, though. There are a couple that only need one more person. So, be that person to let it start!
Aganju: I wasn't looking to actually set it up. I was looking for the location of the choice to make it a prize tournament. Though of course I misunderstood the original question anyway, which wasn't even about that.
Skeeky: When creating the tourney, there is an area that allows you to attach a prize.
If it is already created, but no one has signed up, perhaps delete it and start again. If it is already created, and only a few have signed up,perhaps delete it, start again, and inform those who did sign up. Or maybe write to Fencer, and he can manually attach the prize?
ennukene00: I don't know what to tell you. I'm sorry for the language barrier. To join a tournament created inside a Fellowship, a person has to be a member of your fellowship. That's just how it works.
MadMonkey: Actually, unless something has changed, there is no need to save any slots for the next round. Regardless of how many games you have going, you still move on to future rounds of tournaments.
This is a special tournament type for backgammon games (and variants) only. The section system is the same as for round robin tournaments - everybody plays one game with every other player of the same section - but the backgammon scoring rules are used to determine the number of points to the game winners:
* 0 points for a loss * 1 point for a normal win * 3 points for a gammon win * 5 points for a backgammon win
Please see the backgammon rules page for the gammon and backgammon explanations.
Artful Dodger: Well, it doesn't seem to be a requirement that you sign up for each game. But yeah, to have a chance, I imagine you would have to sign up for quite a few. The ones that you think you have the most chance of winning, I imagine.
Tuesday: Sure. I am in a few fellowships that do tournaments like that, so I know it is possible. I think if you just set it up, and say that the prize is 200 brains, and PM Fencer, he will make sure it happens. Maybe one of the Big/Little Bosses who set up those types of tournaments frequently will clairify, here.
