*144*Brfs 11th Annual St. Pat's Pente Tourney*144* (Pente - show rules) 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, and not really putting out the usual amount of advertising, 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!
