IDamian: you can set your filter to just look for specific tournaments. IE, set filter to show all “chess tournaments” and then all tournaments that have chess as an option will be shown.

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.

Aganju: but the tourney won’t start until there are 128 players. I don’t know if there are still 128 active players here, everyone will need to sign up to get this one going.

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.  
Sorry folks

Likely in a couple days. But if You've been around BK then you know I’ve done quite a few of these prize tourneys and have always paid up the prizes. 
And we’re actually working on one more ;)

Frog Finder (ouna vs. Clandestine 1)



I’m not sure if I’m missing something here, but I’m up on my opponent 20-14 with each of us having one frog left. He guesses and scores 7 points for the win? I thought it was only 5 points per frog. Am I missing something or is this a little buggy?

Subject: Team tournaments
Just a suggestion here, but I’m thinking all team tournaments should be made with the parameters of 4 persons per team. As it stands now, we’re having a hard time finding 5 players per team. So until things pick up (if they pick up), I would suggest keeping the limit set to 4 people per team.

Tournament creation based on membership status but a sensible limit as to how many tournaments one can create. Active tournaments should not count in the total tho as I can foresee some slow pokes tying everything up.

I think that if further team tournaments are created, then we need to reduce the number of players required. 8 players per team for Cloning Gammon will never happen. 6 would be difficult, 5 is more doable for Fellowships.

We need a player to play for the Untouchables in the upcoming team tournament for Logic. If someone wants to join our fellowship and play, we can get the tournament started.

I think I too should live long enough to see the end of these tournaments, if this site still exists.

With Fencer's generosity of giving out free memberships, I have decided to try something different.... So, I bought another year's membership and this time the free memberships are going to go towards a team tournament.

With Fencer's help we have created the first prize Team Tournament

Gammon Random Games

All are welcome to join (as long as you belong to a fellowship). The 6 lucky participants will battle for a 3 month Brain Rook membership. I chose gammon games as it should even the odds a little and balance the playing fields.

I have created 3 prize tournaments consisting of a 6 Month Brain Rook membership for each winner. Please read tournament details for more specifics.  
I can't copy and paste the links here because I'm not near a computer and I'm limited by my phone. For those that are interested go into the tournament section and all 3 tournaments commence Feb 1st. 
Next time I'm at a computer I will post the links.

We need one more fellowship to get this tournament going. Oct 2014 Spider Linetris Bash III

Where are the Knights? Your fellowship usually plays in everything.

vstjrt: Maybe he just doesn't know how to play and is an experiential learner, learning as the game progresses. Over time, a player will learn when they are beat, some will resign and some hold on hope for the win by time out.
I for one know nothing about the game so I would end up playing until it was obvious to me (a beginner) that I was beat. Most experienced players know when a game is won long before the novice, and it doesn't really matter what the game type is.

Subject: Re:
furbster: I expect that most original participants of that tournament will no longer be members at this site and that the majority of won games will be by default due to a few extremely slow players that truthfully wrecked this tournament. I'm looking forward to the next 10 years of this tournament. May the youngest person win! I know I will still be around ;-)
