Welcome to the gameboard.

Due to the large gap of time between upcoming games (including postponed ones) I have decided to bring back an old concept and polish it up.

Some of you may recall the term “Closed Room Blitz”, a style of game which only saw action for a short period of time.( http://www.seacats.net/gameboard/res/4422.html) Well using that idea I propose a tournament.

The concept is simple. Each match would consist of two players attempting to solve each other’s closed room before the other does. To make it interesting, if you don’t post within 5 minutes your opponent's blue automatically goes through, assuming no previous red counters it. Naturally the winner is the first to solve the opponent’s closed room.

Now you may be wondering what I meant by “polish”. Well, unlike back then the amount of freedom shall be slightly restricted. What that means is you must also write a minimum of one paragraph describing the room or the events leading up to it. This just enforces the idea of an actual closed room rather than a guessing game.

As we progress through each match all the reds you made will be visible to your next opponent so keep that in mind. Oh, and editing your posts is not allowed, so make sure you have the red and or blue perfect while remaining inside that time zone.

Now then, we will need 8 people to make this work. Enough people have expressed their interest so I doubt that should be any problem. This is first come first serve by the way. After the allotted slots have been filled I shall use a random number generator to select the pairings and then I will post them onto the site. During the time we can then discuss the times and days when each pair will face off.

If you have any more questions I failed to mention feel free to ask in the thread.

The tournament has now ended. Below is a directory for convenience sake.

Oh, this sounds like fun! I will take the seventh slot. I really enjoyed reading those old closed room blitz games...Now I just need to try and come up with some good ideas.

By the way, does Knox apply here? It would seem difficult to apply some of the rules (can you really present sufficient clues to the solution in a single paragraph without making it obvious?), but others might be viable.
>> No. 11589 edit
File 136397417211.jpg - (61.21KB , 508x590 , 259653.jpg )
For that I suggest a vote. Only because I feel a few of the people already signed up may be opposed. If we do apply Knox I think we may also need to increase the number of minimum paragraphs though.

Well, it's not like I'm particularly in favour of it; I was just wondering about whether there'd be any restrictions on just how obscure the solutions are allowed to be.

I feel that some level of restriction is necessary, but bringing it to the point where the answer is deduced primarily from the text rather than from skilful use of the blue would sort of kill the spirit of the closed room blitz in my view. Obviously a balance needs to be found.

Alright then.

Talked it over with other players on skype.
Our conclusion was Knox's 2nd, 3rd and 4th are the only ones the game should need.

Now with all 8 players the tournament is ready.

Here are the pairs and the order each match will take place.

Now then the first players Kinjo and Rika, prepare a time and date which works for both of you. Ideally the first match should be within this week. Due to time zones I imagine we will not start for another day or two.

Once the date has been chosen the next pair is asked to do the same until the first rounds have all been planned.

Friday is good, but I might not be able to play until sunday. Anyway, do you have an IM or some way to contact you? Skype account if possible.
Hey, do you have a Skype account? We have a group there with the players.

Gah, I hate going first...

Anyway, I'm on a rather nocturnal schedule. I tend to wake up at about 4 or 5 PM my time, which is evening where you live. Would something like that work for you, Rika?

...And as for the date, I want at least a day to prepare, so is Thursday evening acceptable?

I don't, sorry. Barely even aware of its existence, actually.

Could you define 'evening'? I'm not sure how many hours apart we are. I should be fine for any time between about 6 and 10 pm on Thursday. For anything outside of that, I might be able to arrange it if I know in advance.

You're 5 hours ahead of me, right? I'll wake up a bit earlier in the afternoon, then.

Well that was easy. Forgot Kinjo was nocturnal as of late.

Anyway anon and Camphor, you guys are in the second match so it would be best if you figure out which date you will play before Kinjo and Rika face off in their match. Then once your match is planned Mion and Rudolf can set a date. Followed by Rosa and I.

Sorry to keep you waiting, finals week isn't helping my case very much. Any day on or after this Friday until the next week actually works for me, so I can do Sunday or whatever is most convenient for you. I probably can't talk today, but my skype is camphorfloatage Decided to register for just the occasion...

Alright then, the first match has been concluded. Rika moves on to the semi finals.

Now then, it seems the 2nd pair is having a few problems planning so if the 3rd pair is ready before them then I'll allow them to budge in line if they so desire.

If Mion or Rudolf wishes to compete tomorrow or on Saturday the offer is still up, until then it seems anon vs Camphor has now been scheduled for Sunday 11am.

In an unexpected victory Anon will move on to face Rika in the semi-finals.
Camphor had to leave but he will post his answer later.

Mion vs Rudolf is next. Please get the date and time for your match prepared.

Well it seems I won.

With that match now finished we shall move onto the semi-finals. I have updated the bracket as such so please remind yourself of who you shall be facing.

Rika vs Anon is the next match so I ask the both of you to scheduled a time and date once again.

This board could really do with a clock, huh? I'll post this to check the time and then edit once I've ascertained the time difference.

...Okay, any time from around 11:30 board time should be okay, I believe. If that is okay with you. If not, we can probably arrange something else; I am pretty much free that day.
