FUN TOURNAMENT Sat, 01 August 2009 13:31
To fill the gap between League Season 3 and the beginning of the NC / League Season 4, I thought we could play a Fun Tournament including some nice variants as in Heroes Quick Tournament by Colo.

I thought of playing a series of 5 games (snake, 5 tix min, 8+ no more, draw open, no5or6) with rules like in All Around Tournament in small groups with 4 or 5 players.

Thought time frame is Aug 08 - End of September.

If you are interested, please tell me.

Cheers

DN

Seven players so far....

Check out the Ticki page

http://www.informatik.uni-frankfurt.de/~erps/tickipedia/inde x.php/Fun_Tournament

for rules and stuff - especially for the variant's rules (as "snake" for example allows to continue ANYWHERE(!) from a built circle!) and penalties.

We are 13 now...not quite a good number to play - 16 would be perfect (4 groups with 4 players and QF as first KO-Round - total 7 matches for finalists), maybe there are 3 more players interested???

...and still 2 missing Sad

seeding list by combined USA/2player ELO:
    01) 3739 Hecki
    02) 3706 onyx puffin
    03) 3634 Val
    04) 3597 xsandrax
    05) 3541 AT_Pammes
    06) 3531 DerNeusser
    07) 3510 Robin Hood
    08) 3440 AT_Karin1961
    09) 3437 Technikerin
    10) 3435 mennonite827
    11) 3387 JenAck
    12) 3378 Teddy1
    13) 3333 cat_
    14) 3322 Tyrana
would lead to 3 groups like this
    • 01) 3739 Hecki
      06) 3531 DerNeusser
      07) 3510 Robin Hood
      12) 3378 Teddy1
      13) 3333 cat_

    • 02) 3706 onyx puffin
      05) 3541 AT_Pammes
      08) 3440 AT_Karin1961
      11) 3387 JenAck
      14) 3322 Tyrana

    • 03) 3634 Val
      04) 3597 xsandrax
      09) 3437 Technikerin
      10) 3435 mennonite827
with Semi-Final A1 vs best 2nd (points of A2 vs A5 and B2 vs B5 won't count in the relative perspective of A2, B2 and C2) and B1 vs C1.

As I am not really happy with this structure, I hope we will find 2 more players to fit the 16 with 4x4 players on sunday, maybe you can ask some of your friends????

Definitely there will be no prolongation of the registration phase after August 10, 00.00 CEST - registration phase ends in the moment, player 16 subscribes - if you register as # 17 - YOUR FAULT, TOO LATE!!!

DN

EDIT: WOW, welcome Val # 14...two more please Razz

Addition to a rule gap:

no 5 or 6:

--> if your opponent closes the game and you take a 5er or 6er track in your very last turn (with no chance to take tix in the next turn as penalty) you lose the game, irrespective of the points of this game, if your opponent says "penalty" before he takes his last turn!

Hi Dom and all you nuts in this tourney,

one minor remark: Dom slightly changed the rules for "8+nono" compared to my original rules. In Dom's rule - if I read it correctly - you would still be allowed to draw for at least one card (that would then have to be a loco) if you have 9 color cards. Since the opponent does not easily see if you have 9 or 10 or more cards (it always shows "8+") I would recommend to get back to the rule that says drawing for color cards is not allowed if you have "8+".

Too bad I could not join, I just dont have the capacity at the moment to commit for a tourney like that. I wish you all a lot of FUN !

Colo

Honor System Smile


i don't think honor system (if that means trusting each other not to break the rules) would solve this, because apparently one of the ideas of this tournament is that you are allowed to break all the rules, but if your opponent catches you at it, there are penalties involved.

Quote:

9) Penalties: If your opponent plays in an inconsistent way to the variant's rule, you have to say "PENALTY" or something like that BEFORE your very next turn! Then and only then, your opponent has to take at least one more tic in his next turn - in the variant no5or6 TWO tix due to the high points of the tracks. Points you get by fouls will not be taken away and count! A playing of penalty-tactics (like making turns with the intension of breaking the rules) is ALLOWED - SO ALWAYS WATCH YOUR OPPONENT'S WAY TO PLAY AND DON'T CLICK TOO FASTLY - AND ALWAYS CRY OUT "PENALTY" IN CASES...


The problem with this specific item is that your opponent can't (easily) call out PENALTY, because it won't be obvious you are breaking the rule.

Re:FUN TOURNAMENT - LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER Mon, 10 August 2009 17:35
On this rule factor and change from Colo about the 8+ max 10, it will be obvious when they put their trains in because when they put in a 3 train, 10-3= 7 and 7 must then show there, not 8+. So yes in theory it could be only honor system, but there is a way to catch the person without honor.

That game is not the concern. The one that concerns me is the no 5/6 version. I have never played that type yet and really wonder about it. I mean, it has to be tough to take certain tickets to Miami, Winnepeg, Portland etc. And potentially the PENALTY note in the no 5/6 games is not enough. This is due to the tremendous benefit a 10 or 15 point play gives plus the use of the track laid to connect one's route needed to complete the other tickets. Can the 2 tix taken be ones a player completes by the end? Not that I will play this way. I just personally think the penalty should be even higher. maybe an immediate loss!

onyx puffin vs cat 5:0

Snake: 117 - 106
5 tix: 121 - 106
8+nono: 115 - 83
Open: 128 - 123
no5/6: 80 - 78

The tourney is interesting, but that last variation is just poor and not much fun to play. Perhaps no 6s would have worked.
