MadMonkey: funny how we learn of these things. I’ve been here since the starting year of BK and never knew about this loophole. I too heard about brains being scammed but never knew how (or even why). Like Carpe, I’m signed up and playing in one of those tournaments and also don’t have any “Brains”.
I feel like there should be a scarecrow reference from the Wizard of OZ on that last sentence.
Thanks for the responses MM & earl, that's very helpful. I would've asked in the tourney chat, but I've rarely seen much chat going on in any tourney, and there wasn't in that one. But I think I have all the answers I need, and I got a bonus one about the "Brains scam" that I've heard a little about but never understood until now. :)
Carpe Diem: hmmmm a very good question.... I have just tried to join Brains tourney (whilst i have no brainking Brains) and it allowed me as well. I am sure it never used to. It must be a bug in the system i guess.
As for what happens in your tourney, I am guessing that the 1st prize will still be 100% of what players paid to enter (if they did of course). It does say Current status of prizes: 1: 5000 Brains, 2: 0 Brains, 3: 0 Brains , so it would suggest it thinks you have paid.....
Can you not mention it in the tournament chat and see…? Or ask LEGENDA as it is there tourney
Somehow I've been able to join a tournament with a 1,000 brain entry fee, and I have no brains. Well, I like to think I do, but not Brainking brains - unless I acquired some without realizing it. I wasn't even aware it had an entry fee. So, I guess I'm wondering what happens next.

Marshmud: because by the time you get to the end everyone else will have quit or died. JK
If this tourney play out (which is a huge accomplishment if it does) it will likely only take about 5 years to compete. I won a 13 month brainrook membership in a tournament that lasted just over 13 years. I still think that’s got to be some kind of record.
Hello BK players, I have not had any response from Fencer to pay for the prize tournaments I created or the prize tournaments that Marshmud and I were going to create. I have deleted the pawn tournament as there was no interest. I kept the Prize tournament for members as I’m hoping that Fencer will get back to me before Christmas. If not, I will also have to delete that tournament as it will not be able to start until the money is paid.
