    Putting this up so everyone can see how the tournament will progress.

    Once the final exhibitions complete, probably by the weekend, I'll draw the brackets and colours.

    If anyone else wants to hop into the tournament before Monday May 30th, just let me know and I'll adjust the tree.

    Happy to join the next one, but what happened to the last one? Did it close early?

    Happy to join the next one, but what happened to the last one? Did it close early?
    Well it didn't really "close" per se, we're just turning it into a tournament instead, and counting those other games as practice exhibitions - I just thought I would give anyone else who wanted in an opportunity to jump aboard before it resumes.

    The main reason for this transformation is that I came face to face with the work entailed in managing even just a small league - the prospect of scheduling 60 games became a bit overwhelming, so I thought I would change it into a tournament instead with around 9 games total. In the end it achieves the exact same thing - all of us get to play, and there will be a resolute winner in the end.

    This way once a tournament finishes, we can start a new one, and I don't have to worry about scheduling everything because the tree takes care of itself. *slumps exhausted in chair*

    been into the website and checked my emails.  The game shows chess and backgammon on 30 May but I can't "do" anything. Tried clicking on my number in the back gammon and nothing happens with that or the dice.

    There should be a second backgammon game now - the first one apparently didn't work. Lynsey goes first (with the aim of teaching you how to play), so she needs to move before you can.

    I forgot to make provision for ties, so on the chance they show up, the match will simply be replayed with colours reversed. Easy enough to do right in the existing game options.

    It's working. Yesterday was a holiday in the US. I was busy consuming alcohol irresponsibly. I made the fist move moments ago and we are up and running

    The first round still needs to complete - Sean and I drew so we have to replay - so there still a bit of relaxation time before the next.

    Alright, first round over!
    Tourney tree updated.
    First comeback bracket match is activated and underway (Rosie vs Sean), good luck!
    The rest of us will take a short break while the comeback brackets play out.

    In the mean time, Greg, I've challenged you to an exhibition game of something... fun... to test it out for the rest of us.

    I always see people playing it in movies that I watch, but I don't know how to play it myself. I don't think it's an option on that website yet (neither is Japanese chess, to my chagrin), but he adds new games from time to time.

    Mahjong is fun. It's just matching up the tiles.  There's downloadable solitaire games you can play.
