Re:FUN TOURNAMENT - LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER Sun, 16 August 2009 20:35
@ # 3: 8 + NO MORE
Colo points at a gap in the rules

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+".


The only difference to the Colo version played in the TTR League Heroes Tournament is the possibility to draw an open loko if you have 9 cards. I never thought this could be such an issue, as there are some players, who play this variation with the FUN-rules since months (Teddy1 for instance). As I said to Hecki before, the first player to complain about this change in rules, I really don't think this opens a door for cheating, because first the change in rule is very small as it only affects an open loko your opponent is allowed to draw while you see 8+ (taking from the deck is never allowed with 8+!!!) AND second, well, I really, really think everybody here can count to nine or ten... before the new version of TTR came out, all players had to count their cards to 44 and now you are not able to keep in mind if your opponent has nine or ten cards??? Just open your eyes and don't click that fast (like the rules say!).

To respond to ace, this tournament is NOT to be seen as an Honor System - as Mr. Atkinson said, the rules ALLOW playing non-rule-consistent tactics with the intension to face penalties - I always thought about a "loophole" of playing in this tournament like making a walkover (Durchmarsch) in Ramsch for those who play skat. But in one way, there always has to be an "Honor System": If your opponent catches you with more than 10 cards, you have to be a fair player and take the penalty without denying - he can proof it the next turn anyway like onyx shows:

quote

...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.


@ # 5: NO 5 OR 6
onyx puffin doesn't like the last game

The tourney is interesting, but that last variation is just poor and not much fun to play. [...] I just personally think the penalty should be even higher.


I didn't play this very often, but I think it's quite interesting - this game offers you many ways to block several tix, so your opponent has to face the question wether to drop a tic or break the rules with a following penalty. Maybe you're right, onyx, and the penalty is not high enough and taking all three tix would be a more appropriate penalty (losing the game at once is too hard in my eyes), but changing the rules during the RR ain't a good thing - if there are more players, who complain about this game, we can change the rules for the KO Round or eventually drop the game for another one.

Please keep in mind the addition to this variant's rule:

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!

[quote title=Please keep in mind the addition to this variant's rule: ]

I admit I wrote that note about the NO 5/6 game after my first time playing. I have come to appreciate the penalty notation. I learned from being blocked on a time when I had to keep Sfran-Atl ticket which was originally paired with a Bos-Miami in my options from beginning. Which to drop? I opted drop of Bos to Miami, thinking I only had to grab the two 3s for Sfran rather than face blocked out of Miami. But Karin put a block on me to keep from any west coast ticket, so I had to do the 5 yellow and take the penalty. I opted for the penalty thinking +34 rather than -17, and take two tickets and make one of them. This is exactly what happened. So rather than -17, I got +17 plus the 10 point track points and in essence a 0 point loss in ticket made and lost in the pick-up. So I have learned there is a gamble to anyone thinking of the block. In that case it back-fired as I gained more than the blocking helped Karin.
Interesting huh?
So I do not have such a problem with the game now. It actually adds a neat strategy choice to that game.

That was the essence of the penalty thoughts in all variations - it is a kind of lottery - you can be lucky with the tix found or face some ugly combinations that only lead to new penalty decisions.

Re:FUN TOURNAMENT Sat, 22 August 2009 00:34
Please remember the double penalty in the variation NO 5 OR 6, as I heard about a game with a penalty-player only taking one tic (and even two times due to two penalties)!

DIGEST OF THE RULES

Penalty: Draw (at least) 2 (in words: TWO) tickets THE VERY NEXT turn (in other words draw at least two of the three offered tix), if you lay a 5er or 6er track (this has to be a penalty Wink). The track points you get by wrongly played 5er or 6er track count!

SPECIAL CASE: 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!
