Welcome to the SCARIEST trilogy of tournaments ever!!!
It is October, time to celebrate Halloween and Dia de los Muertos!! So I've designed a trilogy of terrifying tournaments for anyone who is brave enuf to try them.
Since October is the 10th month of the year, each tournament will have 10 players. When you've got scary things coming after you, you need to move very fast, so all of these tournaments will be set at only 2-days per turn (you'd better be able to keep up). And just to make things even scarier, BOTH games per opponent will start immediately!! That means you will be playing 18 simultaneous games (and any mathematician can tell you that 18 is what you get when you add 6+6+6 ).
These tournaments will be going very fast, so vacation time is NOT allowed. However, just to make sure that no one gets hurt for real (it is all in fun after all) these games will also NOT be rated.
Here are the Custom Trophies for the Halloween Gambit Tournament:
Here are the Custom Trophies for the Dracula vs Frankenstein Tournament:
And here are the Custom Trophies for the Creepy Crawly Tournament:
Good Luck to everyone brave enuf to try these horrifying tournaments!! Have Fun!!
By the way, if you want to write in a foreign language I'd suggest checking the dictionary first. "Muerta" is the femenine form of the adjective "dead". If you wanted to translate "Death", the word you were looking for is "muerte".
I stand corrected. Thanks for that clarification.
id play if the time controls were longer
me too maybe
I accidentally forgot to change the starting position when I set it up, and it won't let me edit that, so I'll need to cancel them and re-create them. When I do that, I'll change it from 1-day to 2.
The biggest problem is no vacation I guess :)
Ok, the new tournaments have been created, and the links in the first post (as well as my poor Spanish grammar) have been corrected. The old tournaments will still be at 1-day per move from the standard starting position, but the new ones will be 2-days per move from the specified starting position.
Good Luck Everybody!!! Have Fun and Don't Time Out!!!
