Brfs 10th Annual St. Pat's Pente Tourney There are only 21 days left from today to signup! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm going now on a decade of hosting this challenging pente tournament here at Brainking! please join in for another yearly installment of the "Brfs St Patricks Day Pente Tournament"
Continuing the trend of a 2 player finish, last years tournament is close to wrapping up with Spavacz and be_water battling it out in the final round. ...the 4 wins match will still be the setting on a final round (if a 2 player - Round 3 happens again). This setting helps to ensure the tournament completes in a timely fashion.
This years St Pat's Tourney has the best settings based on 9 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 2 days per move with vacation allowed.....anything more and the tourney won't finish before the 2017 St Patty's tourney.
Please keep in mind we've had quite the issue in years past of people using alternate accts (which messes with seeding) and not fessing up about it. Based on the results of THIS POLL, I'm going to be asking all such accounts (without an established Pente BKR) to let me know if this is a legit 'unrated' account or "other". If you fit into this category and I don't receive a Private Message explaining your acct situation before the tourney start time, I will remove the acct from the tournament. I'm sorry to have to do this, but please read the message boards of prior tourney's and you'll understand the debacle I'm trying to prevent.
It's almost here! Do you feel you have the Pente luck of the Irish? well sign up and see how far you can battle your way through the grids! On St.Patricks Day (March 17, 2016) the tourney begins!
My thanks to all of you who continue to sign up for this tournament every year! I can't believe we're on the 10th one! Good luck to all players, I look forward to playing you across the board!
Here is a list of the upcoming Team Tournaments..... Hawaiian Checkers only need ONE more Team then it can start Chinese Chess needs THREE more Teams, while Anti Line 4 has NO entries yet Bosses & Captains, PLEASE help out if you can
ketchuplover: there is no 'official' site championships.For some years, there were inofficial 'World Championships', for all games, but I think whoever did those stopped doing them - I haven't seen any in awhile. If you think we should have them - like for 2016 - I like the idea - the search for that tournament and check how it was setup (maybe message with the creator if you want to be nice) and set them up. I would participate. Make sure the timing settings are so they appeal to a broad audience, to get maximum participation, and chose a style that doesn't drag the tournaments out forever.
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
