Chess Variant Tournament to be played on Game Courier.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Greg Strong wrote on 2019-03-01 UTCSorry for the delay. I think I should be able to kick things off this weekend... Let's shoot for Sunday, March 2nd, sometime around noon or thereafter (EST). The selection of games is complete. I heard from almost everyone and the results were pretty consistent. If it is the case that we don't have quite enough players and we need to give each player a BYE for a round, I will try to give each player the bye on the game he rated low (although that might be difficult to work out in practice.) Most of these games got a low ranking from one player and high rankings from everyone else. In only one case was one of the games selected given a zero ranking by anyone, but I included it anyway because the next game in the ranking got several points less - quite a drop-off given the distribution - and because the player who gave it a zero only gave the game that would be its replacement a one. So, I think all-in-all everyone will be pretty happy with the game list. There are nine games for three rounds of three (like last year.) These are the 9 games, in no particular order: Metamachy Symmetric Chess Colossus Hectochess Gross Chess Sac Chess Unicorn Great Chess Opulent Chess Shako_Balbo And these are the nine people who I believe are playing. If anyone else wants to join, you are welcome. It would be great if we could get one more. Otherwise, everone will have one bye round.

I believe the only two that do not yet have rule-enforcement are Symmetric Chess and Metamachy (which I know Fergus is already working on.) We won't play either of those in the first round to give time for rule-enforcing presets to be made. Thanks everyone!
