I don't have the time at the moment to organize GC4 either. Good to see you again, Fergus!

No objection from me, Charles. I will try and get onto assigning these games over the weekend.

'It takes by jumping (like piece of draughts but in all directions), jumping an enemy piece diagonally.' so can it or can't it take orthogonally?

here are the official results. Name Userid Gary Gifford penswift 12.5 Antoine Fourri?e antoinefourriere 12 Joe Joyce joejoyce 10.5 carlos carlos carlos 9 David Paulowich david_64 8.5 Michael Schmahl mschmahl 7 Todor Tchervenkov tchervenkov 6.5 Adrian Alvarez de la Campa adrian 6 je ju jejujeju 6 Greg Strong mageofmaple 5 Jeremy Good judgmentality 3 Abdul Raman Sibahi sibahi 2 Uri Bruck bruck 2 juan rodriguez rodriguez 1 congratulations again gary! about the figures: i have double-checked these numbers. there are several differences between my numbers and david's numbers. i have included all players who properly completed at least one game. this is irrelevant to the final order though because if i included the other three or four as well it would just mean everybody got the same number of extra wins. at a certain stage in the tournament adrian, greg, jeremy and abdul became inactive players. from that point on, any games between an active player and an inactive player were given as wins to the active player. any games between two inactive players were given as wins to the black player (because white would have timed out first).

cool, but see my earlier comment - some of the games you are counting don't count because people lost on time and then didn't really play any games at all... how do you get yours to stay in nice lines?

gary: is it correct that there is no obligation to move out of check (if you can instead capture the opponent's king)?

yeah, i think i must have forgotten to enter the tournament field for that one...

carlos carlos wrote on 2008-04-26 UTC
i think all the first round games are up now, let me know if anything is missing/wrong.

carlos carlos wrote on 2008-04-25 UTC
done! joe, jeju, juan - please move in the new games.

carlos carlos wrote on 2008-04-25 UTC
graeme, i did enter grayhawke... every time. i don't know why it changed it to grayhawke2.

carlos carlos wrote on 2008-04-24 UTC
i wondered about that. i entered grayhawke without the 2, but i noticed that the game logs all say grayhawke2. i'm not sure why that happened, or what to do. maybe you could create a new username if it's no big deal?

carlos carlos wrote on 2008-04-23 UTC
most games are up. charles, which preset do you want to use: Charles Birds (vs Donut) you can check on the games by entering PL1 in the games field. counting them, the joe-juan game of atlantean doesn't show up tho, not sure why. for some reason something is wrong with the games involving graeme. maybe i used the wrong username. graeme, if you can't access those games let me know. however, i don't have the power to delete/alter games so i guess i will just reassign them.

carlos carlos wrote on 2008-04-15 UTC
seeing as we are allowed to veto for any reason at all, i'll go for... circular chess with crooked bishops and queen eight stone hammer chess hostage chess racing kings rococo save the standard 13x13 titan chess

about the rules of wormhole chess: the trapped pawns on d3 and d8 are allowed a single diagonal move to begin. i don't think this is written in the rules.

ok, i'll play if enough people sign up. a couple of things - several important GC3 games are still in progress and could go on for a while. that could affect registration... i also think the 48-hour window for vetoes is too short - a week might be better.

gary, can pawns promote to anything? can a horse-apult fire the other horse-apult?

i've made a table with all the updated results and excluding FD,ST,CP,JL,BB and NF as they didn't complete any games. that leaves 14 players and 13 possible points for each player.

the table won't paste properly into a comment. any ideas? it's just a regular spreadsheet table.

here's the leaderboard though. possible score is in brackets.

GG 11.5 (12.5) AF 11 (12) CC 9 (9) DP 8.5 (9.5) JJ 7.5 (10.5) MS 7 (9) TT 6.5 (8.5) AA 6 (6) GS 5 (5) Je 4 (7) JG 3 (3) UB 2 (3) AR 2 (2) JR 1 (1)

so gary needs at least a half-point from his last game to win the tournament (i think he would win on the countback rules fergus used). antoine could win the tournament if he beats todor and gary loses to michael.

3rd-7th all depend on results from the final round of games too. joe has the third highest possible score at this stage.

i just assigned the final three games.

carlos carlos wrote on 2008-02-03 UTC
antoine, thanks. i noticed that there is another game with the same problem. adrian-mschmahl-2008-30-525

carlos carlos wrote on 2008-02-01 UTC
joe, i'm sick of you holding up the tournament with your slow-play! only kidding. if you both make your first move, that should give antoine enough time to see this and change the time settings on the game...
