WE are looking for people to join Brian's 1971 pub. People who enjoy playing tournaments. Currently we have 4 line game tournaments open. People who like voicing their opinions with our poll questions and discussion boards. People who like being part of teams. WE are looking to expand our teams and continue our success. If this sounds like you please join the fellowship today. Click link on my previous post to check us out.
If anyone is interested in having fun and being part of teams. We have the top rated battleboats plus team at Brainking. WE also have just opened up 4 new tournaments to join and a new opinion poll. Just looking for players who want to be part of something and have fun doing it. Games and more is what we have to offer at Brian's 1971 Pub. Click the link and join us.
FIRST: The Turkish Checkers Team Tournaments needs 1 more team to start. I like to mix it up with different game types, so I would love to see some get together to get one more team signed up so this can start.
There is a team with 4 players, a team with 3 players, and a few teams with 2 players. Lets see one of you try to recruit from these players to see if you can get a team of 5 to join this tournament!
SECOND: A suggestion was made to spread out the tournaments a little - instead of having them all start on 1 day - so for September's group, I have them starting about a week apart from each other.
FEEDBACK WANTED: How do you like that? Do you like them spread out like that, or all starting at the same time? Hopefully being spread out a little will help get more to join since they know they won't be bombarded with a lot of new games all at once.
As always, I'm always open to suggestions & ideas. (In private message the best since I can organize it and look at them when I start to make new site team tournaments..... but in here to discuss them with others would probable be OK also.)
on fellowship boards. I have a player in my friends list but when I am in fellowships with this player, I can see where people have replied to this player but not their posts. Apparently, this user's posts are being hidden from me but not necessarily from others and I am wondering how to get this user's posts so that they will be visible to me.
If you like teamtournaments, and you don't have a fellowship where you play them, or you want to play with some other dedicated gamers , please join the The Teamplayers fellowship. Here in this fellowship, we only play teamtournaments, nothing else. For other games you have plenty of fellowships where you can join.
There are some places free for the upcoming tournaments.
I've created 6 new team tournaments for fellowships to compete in. Fencer has allowed the "time per game" time control, and also allowed for us to make them with hours in the standard time (since 2/3 days seemed too short for some, 4 days seemed too long - a good 3 day, 12 hour is nice)
Anyway, I have heard 2 main complaints/suggestions. (1) team size for the popular games is too high for smaller fellowships to get teams and (2) Team Tournaments last too long.
Well I've tried to mix things up to hopefully help those 2 things. There are 2 backgammon TT's that have a small team size - plus 3 of the 6 use the Fischer Clock time control which have NO DAYS OFF - no vacations - no weekends. (SO CAPTAINS - Make sure your team understand how these time controls work - have them check out this article if needed: http://brainrook.com/archives/54-Time-limit-for-games-on-BrainKing.html )
The other 3 TT's use standard vacations, two with 3 days, 12 hours - and one with a little quicker 2 days, 12 hours time limit.
2 of the games (Open pente & Fevga) never had a TT before 2 of the games (Turkish Checkers & Logik) have not had a TT for awhile - both pretty popular (31st and 21st most popular according to current games)
So hopefully this was a good mix. As always, suggestions and ideas are always welcomed.
Subject: Would you like to be MAD..................lol
Are you looking for a GREAT Fellowship to join ? Fancy representing us in a any of our many Teams, in Tournaments or in a challenge against another Fellowship ? Maybe have a break & join in with some Scrabble or Canasta as well at BugCafe ? Climb to the top of the Stairs or splash about in a Pond ? Do you want to be part of a friendly crowd who love playing games and having a chat ? Maybe you just bored with the Fellowship you are in, and looking for more ? How about winning a PRIZE MEMBERSHIP in one of our FREE monthly Tournaments, starting in May
If you answered yes to any of the above, come along and ask to join:
WOW - With so many new games and such, it was hard to pick which games to make site team tournaments out of. Sorry I did not get to all the suggestions given to me, but I still have all the suggestions and will try to get them in next time.
5 of the 6 have never had a site team tournament. Cheversi has had a site team tournament before, but did you know there was a recent rule change to make this game more even? So if you have not played Cheversi for awhile - well now is the time to start playing again.
Oh, and a bonus game. Can anyone figure out where I got the 6 names for these tournaments? (Stampy, Pinchy, Strangles, Plopper, Snowball, and Mojo)
At the end of this month, the new batch of team tournaments is set to go. For a team tournament to start, there needs to be at least 4 teams signed up. Currently, there are 2 teams which NEED HELP:
Small Espionage - Only need 4 players per team. Any Fellowships looking for members? (Are you a player looking for a fellowship to play with)
Grasshopper - Only need 4 players per team. Any Fellowships looking for members? (Are you a player looking for a fellowship to play with)
Lets post in here what is needed.
= = = = = = = = =
My Gammon Cube fellowship is in need of 2 more Grasshopper players. The fellowship is open to all Bishops & above. ALL SKILL LEVEL. (meaning you don't have to be good or an expert to join my team - just need to have fun) - so please go and join if you are interested: ◙ The Gammon Cube ◙
Well, thanks to Eriisa, we seem to have ChatZilla working and BrainKing has its own Channel (Live Discussion Board / Chatroom)
Those of you that have used any form of IRC (Interent Relay Chat) before should have no problem finding it on the dalnet server.
Everyone in the Fellowship is welcome to log in to it, and i will post it on the Fellowship board in case there are others that use IRC and wish to join us.
So, please just download ChatZilla, follow the Instructions and hopefully you will find Myself & Eriisa there
Those using any other form of mIRC, i am sure will know how to get there , just type /join #brainking from the dalnet server.
There is no real reason to create a live discuccion forum as such, but it has been talked about many times on BrainKing. This is just a nice way to do it in the form of a Firefox Extension and just for BrainKing users The room is there all the time, and hopefully an Operator (Eriisa & myself at present) will be there to help answer any questions. So if you just fancy a chat with friends or there is a problem with the site and you want somewhere to go, you now have somewhere to go.
Come and join us either through ChatZilla OR any IRC provider
...is looking for stairs lovers. We play backgammon stairs with cube. We have 10 stairs as of now 3 point w/cube and 4/point with cube 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 days for each. Will consider expanding to more times controls. Will also consider intra-fellowship tourney's based on interest.
Send me a note if you are interested in joining...
WellyWales: What "rooms"? If you mean discussion boards, they are controlled by the discussion board system - the main moderator can add secondary moderators of his choice. There cannot be two main moderators of a discussion board.
