Subject: Re: Backgammon with Doubling Cube (quick tournaround)
Tuesday: want to play a game and see how it works? Its simple...goes 2, 4., 8, and doubles each time its used. If your playing a game, and your doing well and in the lead, you can offer a "double." If your opponent excepts, the die goes to your side and the board and game is now worth double points. ( game goes from normal to 2x point value) As the game goes on and the lead changes, you can offer the double back and now if your opponent excepts the game is now worth 4 times the point value. If you dont want to except the 4x game you can decline the double and you loose 2 points ( the original double amount of 2) So in a 9 point game the first to 9 points wins.

Aganju: I haven't spent much time trying to understand it, but I don't get the doubling cube.

Subject: Backgammon with Doubling Cube (quick tournaround)
There are a lot of tournaments offered right now, but I prefer to play *with the doubling cube*.
If you do too, and you like a fast game, please join here!

Marshmud: Go for it. Backgammon, 9point cube, 3 days per move, no days off. I will sponsor a 1 year Brainrook membership to the winner. 
Also, 20 players per section (or whatever the max is) so the tournament moves along quickly.

Subject: Re:
Clandestine 1: Since you mention a prize donation, do you want to run the one you suggested with the cube and 9 point game? That is a good idea many have suggested the cube.

also we haven't decided on the site team game but it will be a 1 year rook for the team.

A 6 month rook prize for all 3 ponds. Best combined placement in all 3 to win.

and a 6 month rook tourney for the whole site including pawns.

Also Rodney mentioned a prize. Any ideas folks?

Does Conrad want to run the ponds?

The pond prize and the site team prize I had to ask fencer to do for us. So I did ask his permission. I send him a link to the tournament with info on the winner(s) when completed. The rest of the prize tournaments we pay when we implement them as they are automated.

Subject: Re:
BGBedlam: Since you hosted the pond tournament all year, I think you should have the honor of running this tournament. How about all 3 ponds played. 2 day limit and to start in 7 to 10 days? We will take the first 3 placements, combine all 3 and select a winner. What do you think? You will have to list it as a prize event. List this as a 6 month rook and the team site prize is at a 1 year rook prize and we still have two more membership donations. One from Rodney and one from Clandestine.

Thanks guys.

Subject: Re:
MadMonkey: I think a new tourny is fine. If its gammon releated, 6 players is great. We can also send a xtra player to a team that maybe needs one player. Ill ask mousetrap to get a team together at the black rooks assembly f/s. I think we could get 6 teams with 6 on each team..

Since we have several members making donations, should we offer several in one tournament? Or how about the pond prize, a team site prize for the whole team, and another for everyone including the pawns.

Subject: Re:
Marshmud Clandestine 1 rod03801 BGBedlam : As we already have teams signed for some team tourneys, I think I will just create a new one when we decide how to set it up
Looking at the teams, if we do Backgammon, I think team size should be 6 as we already have 3 fellowships with 6 players, and 3 others that have 5 who hopefully can get 1 more to join....(It would be a shame leaving players out that are already signed up).
As Clandey said, 9 point doubling cube, 3 days per move, with No Days Off sounds pretty good

Marshmud: I actually don't mind running a Pond thing. I have recently decided to stop doing the yearly pond tournament, but I wouldn't mind hosting another pond tournament if it's a one off.

3. November 2021, 06:17:06
Subject: Re:
Marshmud: I think Backgammon would be the obvious choice because people are familiar with it and it doesn't last long! Ludo will last forever;especially if the time controls are set for three days!

Subject: Re:
Marshmud:<span> Jim, I’ll match your prize for the winning team. 
My thoughts are a tournament Separate from the tournaments that Ian just created. 
9 point doubling cube, 5 man team tournament. 3 days per move, with no days off.
My question would be more about if Fencer would be willing and able to divide the prizes for the winning team. 

I posted this to the BK chat board,  but more appropriate to discuss here.

Subject: Re:
rod03801: Short is great with the holidays around the corner. Make it a holiday prize tournament. I have a couple planned. Had to get a ok from fencer, ( cant be done manually) but one of my ideas is all 3 ponds, and the average placement ( with points for the top 5 places in each pond) and the highest ranking player ( of all 3 ponds combined) receives a 6 month rook. A two day pond would be completed by end of this year. Maybe BGBedlam and the Multigammon Mayhem gang would like to run it? We did have near 30 contestants in the last one.

I think a prize tournament to play randomly of our most popular games would be nice. we could even run a poll to see what the top 5 games are. So for now its open for discussion, but lets get them ready to sign up this week if possible.

not sure, waiting for mad monkey but the DEC 2021 site backgammon tournament may be converted to a prize tournament, but after we all talk about it, we may change and just start a whole new game type for around xmas to start.

3. November 2021, 00:04:19
Subject: Re:
Marshmud: I'd think Ludo or Backammon. (Or Hyper, to keep it shorter?)

2. November 2021, 16:36:22
any ideas for a site team game prize tournament. If we have 4 man teams, 3 months membership to each player. If we have a 6 player team, 2 months to each team member.

any ideas on the game or style?

rod03801: My opinion: for many serious Backgammon players, you need to allow the doubling cube. It is a different (and less interesting) game without it; I would 't want to play.

rod03801: Looks good to me. Keep the number of players at 4 and that way there might be enough teams to make a decent tournament.

Subject: Team Tournaments
Fencer has given MadMonkey and myself, the ability to create Team Tournaments, since Coan hasn't been on in a while.
I created a "Test" one. MadMonkey will be the person mostly setting them up, though.
It's been a while since I created a tournament, so I apologize if the paramaters are not perfect!

It is "Random Backgammon".
