National Candy Day Tournament Wed, 27 October 2010 06:37
IN celebration of National Candy Day in the USA,
I am organizing a SWEET Quick Tournament (QT) for November 4th at 10:30pm Eastern USA time zone.
(that is 0330 CEST on Nov. 5, so my apologies to my European friends for the time zone thing, but that time on Thursday is my preferred time, and there is Heroes & Captains that week in EU preferred times.)

This QT will be a Two-player, a double elimination tourney.
(double elimination usually takes 2 hours to complete.)
It will be limited to 16 players. Each player choosing to be in QT will be assigned a letter A through P, Which explains what game they play in which round. The game will be followed along format I will post here that night.

Let me know of your interest in this SWEET QT... Winner could have me send them a candy bar if I can make the arrangements.
Either sign in here or send me a PM

4h30 CEST, so 3h30 in CET time, isn't it ? (We change hour this week-end, and not USA if I remember well...)

Very early getting up... Confused

Knock is right. It will be 3h30am CET due to winter time change.

@Knock : This QT is meant first for AMerican players as they scarcely (not to say never) have tourneys at American nights Smile.
You can stay in bed Razz

Thank you Knock & Sysy for the note on the time change factor.
In USA, time change occurs on Nov. 6th.

And I somewhat apologize for the time factor to Europeans. I do organize QTs throughout the year, but please understand that I need to offer them when it is best for my schedule and other American players.

When NC is over, I surely hope to plan a MULTI Quick tournament using a format I developed. I can try to put that on a day when I will take an afternoon off from work, so it can be played during good European hours.

No problem with your tounament, i didn't want to criticize, sorry if you understood like that...
I only wanted to say that we change hour this week-end...
I understand that it can't be always best hours for everybody around the world ! And I won't criticize someone taking time to organise something.
