News on running
Status overview in post2 as well as in first post at page 2 (so not here)
Drinking at the bar is over; we had some good fights and at the end the bar burned down
But we also have our winners: congradulations go to Serbia
I try to put in here things that happend the last period that could be interesting
Everybody stopped drinking cola, but seems that stopping was not the own choise for everybody
Hm, also everybody stopped drinking beer, but several glasses did come back broken. Please be a bit more carefull
Since most people seems to be a bit cooled down we continued with the wine
To prevent earlier fights (were it fights
) to continue I swapped the teams again
People are getting more and more drunk; anyway result is that we don't have any working electricity
Therefore drinking the whisky has to be done by candle-light
Something went wrong, very unexpectedly some complete teams were burned down; stupid candles
All servied in the hospitals
I don't know what went wrong with those candles but we have some fire in the house, two tables left in a hurry
In the dark the last table had problem to find the exit
Result was that the fire-brigade couldn't use full power and the bar burned down
Plan is to rebuild the Bar, this time made in Iron Headlines
Premiums as well as non-premiums are welcome in this bar.
You should enter as a double team, but it is possible to try to get a partner here.
You will be in one game at the time and in total you have to play 4 games.
All games will be with 3 double teams, after the 4 games your team will have played against all other 8 teams.Planning
Start first games on 9 February. You need to be able to start your game(s) at that moment.
I will reconfirm that date latest 6 February. We are already full. I will start a bit earlier, I still have to organize last parts (like getting tournament privileges). In case you have a reason why it shouldn't start earlier let me know. Bar Double Dutch
I hope that you and your partner will enjoy the opening of my new small bar
To show that you like this bar you have to start drinking within 48 hours. With the new entering method you no longer need to wait for the earlier teams, you only need to join the correct team.
To celebrate this opening I will serve some double drinks on the three 6-persons hang-tables. During the drinks you will play a nice related game. Between the drinks I will rotate all couples over the tables again (using the windmill system), but don’t worry you will stay together with your partner. Although the drinks will become stronger, you can keep ordering new drinks (at this opening party they are for free) as long as somebody at your table is in the game.
We start with Double Cola
Second as you most likely already guessed Double Dutch
After this beer we will go to have some wine, in our case Entre-Deux-Mers
And finally we serve some Johnnie Walker
a double distilled whisky
There is a risk of a tie of 3 or more teams. Only those teams will get some coffee (in fact a double espresso) afterwards.The games
In post 3 you can find how I came to the following games:
1) Cola: USA, doubles, sequential, flat-rate, adjacent
2) Beer: Benelux, doubles, sequential, escalating
, unlimited, sunny
3) Wine: France, doubles, sequential, flat-rate, chained
4) Whisky: Scotland, doubles, sequential, flat-rate, unlimited, fog
Tie) Coffee: Caribbean, doubles, sequential, escalating
, unlimited, fogScore
As score we use the windmill score. You will get more tulips in case you leave a table later. You will get for each game 21, 17, 13, 9, 7 or 5 tulips depending on your position. In fact it will be a team-score, so the winning team will get 21+17=38 tulips. Second team 22 tulips and third team 12 tulips. The third team is the team from with both people are first kicked out.
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 teams where in together will show there relative position. This makes a tie of two teams impossible and of three or more teams unlikely. But a not solvable tie of 3 or 4 teams is possible.
In case I need a single reserve I cannot give the remaining person a better position in this tournament, but the reserve will bring one bonus tulip.
In case I need to replace a complete team then that reserve team will take over the tulips of the leaving team, however in case the leaving team had a bad position the reserve team will get the same number of tulips as the one on position 3.5 (so average between team 3 and 4; with the double that correspond with position number 7). In all cases of a complete reserve team, it will get on top of that start score two bonus tulips (one each).Predictions
Predictions like this are easily not 100% correct, see my earlier tournaments with predictions: link
. The problem is that they really are only predictions.
• Expected start first games at 9 February.
• Expected start last game on 28 March
• Expected the very last game to be finished at 14 AprilAll predictions were made on 22 January. First prediction could easely made correct (not that difficult) so 0% mistake, however it filled very fast so started 29 January (61%). Since it was started too early (and not too late) and could have been done correctly I will count this for the everage only as 30% mistake.
Second prediction in reality 1 April, 4 days late. 22 Jan to 1 April is 69 days; and 4/69 is 6% mistake.
Third prediction in reality 26 April in which is 13% mistake.
So average is 16%, which is worse compared to Crazy Dinner Date (11.5%) and Asian Dinner Date (9%) but better then City Trip (18%)
