Re: Five Elements Shuffle(5ES) - Finals - all games running

On 3 January 0700GMT, danryan was confirmed with a minimum final score of 154. With the next possible MAXIMUM score then computing at 147, it is my pleasure to declare danryan the WINNER of *****The Five Elements - Shuffle*****

Congratulations to danryan, and to everyone who competed. I had fun running this (and playing, while I was outclassed by many in the tournament). The next installment won't be until AT LEAST the Middle of February 2010, possibly much later, as I need to do some more work on the concept...


I WILL continue to update game results and scores as they come in, but only about once a week. Someday, we might finish those final 3 preliminary round games. ;)

Yes, danryan, you truly outplayed us all in the finals. Congratulations to a worthy winner. And Kinnison, if you ever see it fit to host another one of these tourneys, please make sure you invite me - I can't wait to play this format again. This was my favourite tourney ever played in thus far.

Wow. I really don't know how I won this as I felt like I was behind in many of the games. I want to thank all the finalists, we had a really good series of battles (flat rate age of merchants is not my cuppa, that's fer sure!). Thanks Kinnison for running this massive tournament!

Thank you all for the kind comments... I'm currently debating possibilities for the future of this tournament type/franchise.

1: repeat, doubling the number of 5-player games. (60 games per round, 44 per player)
2: run the 5x5 grid, drop the 3 player games, double the 5 player games (30 games per round, 26 per player)
3: modify to a 6x6 setup. run 5 and 6 player games only (48 games per round, 43 per player)
4: the monster: 6x6 setup, run 4-, 5- and 6-player games. (96 games per round, 83 per player)

I love the thought of the last, but I don't see it as being practical. Cabin fever would set in HORRIBLY, and blood would be spilled. ;) Any of the others seems to be a reasonable possibility, and they can be played 'straight' or 'shuffle' for the elimination round.

Speaking of the "Shuffle", what did everyone think of THAT FEATURE specifically? Advancing past the first round by comparing your score not to those you PLAYED, but against a group (that you never played) that played the same folks as you?

Good?
Bad?
Bizarre?
...You played it, and you still don't know what I'm talking about? :)

Hallelujah.

I don't know if anyone has been following this, but I found my long-lost, long-suffering thumb drive, and managed to close out all games and scores for this. All Posts on the first page are current and FINAL, and the excel sheet on google docs is as well.

Thank you all for playing. I'm still trying to decide what to do with this format, or waiting for inspiration to strike for some new idea.

Whatever I run, it's not likely to be until June, right now. Hope everyone's still having fun in whatever games or tournaments you're in.

No one answered your "shuffle" question. I personally thought it was an interesting idea.
