Second post on page1 and first post on page3 contain a status overview. The 3 predictions made on 8 sept had a mistake of 0%; 25% and 2%. So average 9%. Crazy Dinner Date was average 11.5% mistaken, so improved Headlines
Premiums as well as non-premiums are welcome in this restaurant.
At entering you have to choose what your major reason is to join: eat or date?
Date: you need one slot open at the start and two weeks later another slot.
Eat: you need two slots open at the start and a third slot two weeks after the start.
Except for the number of games you can play in parallel, there is no difference between date & eat. For premiums the default is eat, for non-premiums the default is date.Planning
Start first games on 25 September. You need to have your slots open at that moment.In case I have to postpone that date, I will enounce it at this location, latest on the 21 Sept.
Start date is now fixed. I like to get some more reserves, but that will not influence the starting date.
After getting at least a third reserve, I need one or two days to get it started, so starting before 25th of September is not likely.The asian dinner date
Basically there will be 25 people at this date. You will get 6 dishes at 6 tables. Each table has 5 chairs. Every next table/dish people will be swapped (using the windmill setup). At the end of the dinner you will have met all 24 other persons.
To make it more complex we might serve several dishes at the same moment, so you have to walk through the restaurant remembering your chairs at the tables.
We only have a menu-of-the-day and you are not allowed to skip a less tasting dish. (You will get approx. 48 hours to join a game you are invited for by a PM). The menu and complete recipes are given below; in case there are parts you really don’t like (read the menu!
), you better look for another restaurant. In case you prevent to get a (bad) dish to be served, you are kicked out of the restaurant. In case you don’t like the food, get sick of it or there are other problems, just ask me for some help.
In case I need somebody from the waiting line he (or she) will get an extra attention of our restaurant to compensate for the waiting, see score.
I hope you all will enjoy the complete dish. Menu
1. Starter: Balut. A Filipino delicacy
2. Wonton soup. A typic Chinese soup.
3. Main course: Fugu. A difficult Japanese fish; a mistake at preparing is killing for the eaters.
4. Drinks: San Miguel Beer from Hong Kong.
5. As desert: mandarin orange.
6. Afterwards: tea. Just to relax and talk about the good things of this dinner date.The recipes of the Menu
Everybody joining this diner should play 6 games each with 5 persons. More info at post3.
1 Balut: Philippines; standard, freestyle, flat rate, unlimited, sunny
2 Wonton soup: Greater China; standard, sequential, flat rate, unlimited, sunny
3 Fugu: WWII on Iwo Jima; standard, sequential, escalating, unlimited, sunny
4 Beer: Hong Kong; standard, sequential, flat rate, unlimited, fog
5 Mandarins: Mongol Empire; standard, sequential, flat rate, adjacent, sunny
6 Tea: Asia; standard, sequential, no cards, unlimited, sunny Score
As score we use the windmill score. Accept for dish3 you will get more tulips in case you leave the dish later. You will get for each game 21, 17, 13, 9 or 7 tulips depending on your position. The winner gets 21 tulips
Since at WWII people had to eat tulips; you also have to eat tulips at the WWII related maps as at dish3. You will have to eat 0, 4, 8, 12 or 14 of your tulips depending on your end position of dish3. So the winner doesn’t eat tulips
In case you have not enough tulips at the moment you need to eat, you will eat only the tulips you have at that moment. Negative tulips don’t exists !
In case there is at the end of the competition a tie in number of tulips collected, the results of game(s) in which those persons where in together will show there relative position.
Any needed reserve will get the same number of tulips as the person at position 7 at that moment. Furthermore he -or she- will get one extra bonus tulip.Predictions
Predictions like this are easily not 100% correct, see my earlier tournament with predictions: link
. The problem is that they really are only predictions.
• Expected start first games at 25 September.We started on the 25th. So here a score of 100%
• Expected start last game on 18 NovemberIn reality the last game started on 31 Okt, that is 18 days too early. Prediction made on 8 Sep. 18 Nov - 8 Sep = 71 days. 18/71= 25% mistake
• Expected the very last game to be finished at 11 JanuaryIn reality the last game ended on 13 Jan, that is 2 days too late. Prediction made on 8 Sep. 11 Jan - 8 Sep = 125 days. 2/125= 2% mistake
