CtJ Year End-ish Tourney – Final Four!


At long, long last, we’re down to the final four.

Spookymilk defeated Ashton in Mount Rainier
Beau defeated Colin Prime in Cribbage
ZG defeated Inkarnit in Mount Rainier
mbnovak defeated Pope in Emperor Wu’s Exploding Cake.

Spookymilk will now take on Beau, and ZG and mbnovak will go at it to see who will face off in the championship title match.


Spookymilk Sheeple: Day ∞ – Also, 2017 Final Standings!

Well, that’s just funny.

After a very long, protracted endgame (this is not an ideal game to play over the holidays, when I’m not able to access an actual computer at home very often), Pope and Viola have ended the game in a tie.

There are plenty of reasons for this game’s weird pace, but owning my portion of it, I’m sorry that it took so long for me to move to multiple moves a day. Like I said, I was unable to access a computer at home most evenings, and editing on the phone proved to be “adventurous”, if I’m being overly kind to myself. Combined with the fairly low turnout, the odd glut of people in the middle, and the alliance that ended up wiping out a big chunk of people very quickly, it ended up taking WAY too long. Sorry ’bout that.

This next month is the Royal Rumble, which Spooky puts on every year. I don’t THINK I’m counting the rumble towards the overall standings. If that’s the case, Sheeple marked the end of the 2017 season. Here are the (probably) final standings:

1. Spookymilk 15.5 *
2. Violabenice 14.5 *
3. Annette 14 *
4. mbnovak 8 *
5. Pope 7.5 *
6. Beau 5.5
7. Melissa 4 *
8. Ashton 4
9. Todahshy 4
10. Inkarnit 3 *
11. Brooks 3 *
12. KG 1
13. Eschapp 1
14. Colin Prime 1
15. Zee Germans 1
16. DreadPirate 0.5

Melissa got 7th seed because of her automatic entry. Ashton beat Todah in a coin flip (which doesn’t really matter since they’re playing each other, anyway). Inkarnit beat Brooks in a coin flip. KG, Eschapp, Colin Prime, and Zee Germans were ordered this way by Random.org)

I’ll be in touch with the 16 people above sometime this month to let them know what’s up for the tournament.

November CTJ Game

Decision time!

I was thinking Sheeple, maybe? What does everyone else think?

Current Standings! An asterisk denotes automatic berth into the year end tournament, though it seems very likely that at the very least every with more than one point will gain entry.

While we’re talking about the year end tournament, what do you think? Said tournament will likely involve multiple smaller games in a sort of single elimination bracket. It’ll be fun (I’ve got some cool stuff planned), but it may not be everyone’s idea of good timing, with the holidays. Let me know what you think.


Suddenly, wolves!

I’d like to start on the 16th, but I don’t know how realistic that is.

I need a few things from you.

* Are you signing up? (if I don’t hear from you, and you don’t post here, I will assume “no”)
* Which week would work best for you?
* Would you prefer vanilla or themed werewolf?

October Megagame: The Decisioning.

Caesar has fallen, and now it’s time to move on with our lives.

Case in point. We should play a game in October.

I’ve got a couple of ideas. I’d like some feedback.

* Werewolf
I’m sort of leaning toward this. I’m not entirely certain how I’ll get it to work for the year end results, but I’ve kicked around some ideas that make it feasible. And, even if not, it’s been too long since we had a nice, clean game of werewolf.

It could be vanilla-ish, or I could come up with some crazy convoluted theme. Up to you.

* Pogs
Yickit and I kicked around the idea of a Pogs megagame, and I kind of love the idea. I’d need to figure out a way that made it last a little longer and also a way that didn’t punish people who aren’t able to sit on email for hours a day wheeling and dealing.

* Sheeple
A fan favorite, and reasonably easy to run. I’m sort of leaning toward this being the November game, but if enough people insist, we could always bump it up.

* Marco Polo Sasquatch
I’ve been toying with the idea of a game of Marco Polo Sasquatch where the sasquatch moves of its own volition in semi-predictable ways. The ways I’ve come up with be kind of a pain for me to tally, but that’s not your problem, is it?

* What’s In Your Head?
I like this game. We should play it sometime.
