Game Finder showed me 318 awaiting games.

That includes all games that are waiting for players, finished and ongoing.

macbone wrote:Robinette, you're always free to join SoC games. =) These games are open to anyone on Conquer Club, and we use them to train our students. The students have help, though, and they post the games and get advice on their moves. I find that they're generally pretty tough.
We use Classic, 6-player, Terminator or Standard, Escalating, Automatic, Unlimited.
They're listed under Tournaments, but they're open to all.
Links to find SoC games: SoC Basic Terminator Games and SoC Basic Standard Games
Back in the day, wacicha would create 40 or so public games with those settings at a time, but now that we use the tournament label, we've kind of ghettoized ourselves.

I would love to play some of those games...
So using the old school RISK settings (but open on forts and round limits) i did some new searches...
Just to see... well, not as many high-rank private games as i expected...
All PRIVATE games ever played = 4,339 (and i am in 284 of those)
So i checked out the Tournament scene..
All TOURNAMENT games ever played = 1,639 (i am in just 4 of those)
And all the PUBLIC games ever played = 32,064 (am in 31 of those)
Still surprises me...
