RIP me.  I suggest everyone at least get a sense of how to use that system first, I also found it hard to count the blue on blue.  

Care to give it another try since it's obvious you;re just getting up to speed with Galaxy?

Good games Fred and thanks to @chetfor setting this up and to @Joe Bryant for donating the winner's prize. GL all in the knockouts.  

You’re in luck- all 4 of my grandparents were Irish immigrants. Guess what we do on 3/17 every year?

 Do you have any color blindness?

I usually test ok on those scales, I have alot of issues with glare and there are some shades of blue that just don't stand out well in certain lighting.  There's a blue cone color blindness that seems to fit symptoms, but if I have that it's exceedingly mild, you go an wikipedia it and you'd think I'd be walking into walls by now.  Certain blues do wash out against other blues.

There should be some sort of tie breaker for making the playoffs/playoff seeding.  

 

3 hours ago, chet said:

Agreed.  Any thoughts?

 

My votes:

If it is a tie to determine in or out of the playoffs, then H2H if they've played, play-in game if not.  If multiple teams are tied for the last spot, use H2H if someone has beaten all the others, otherwise use point differential.

If it is for seeding only, use H2H or point differential same as above.  If still tied, coin toss.

I will play for cash--dont know if you can do that on galaxy

 

You need a gentleman's agreement. Just play away at a 25 game match (max on galaxy) and keep track. When one player reaches 25 just start over. Keep an ongoing tab. 

I have a gentleman's agreement with my bookie. When you reach up or down $500 you settle. Do the same here. Reach a threshhold, say $50 and then play for an hour or two or marathon whatev. Then when one side reaches $50 you settle through Paypal and then play on if so desired.

Just play an agreed to amount, say $1 a point with the cube, gammons, backgammons and play on. I used to play the same 2-3 guys for $1 or $2 a point and there would be wild roller coaster swings. Sometimes we would play 3 player chouettes all freaking night.

If anyone is interested in playing, even for only $.50 a point let me know. It just makes the game so much more interesting when there is some skin in the game.

Let's do it.  Happy to play up to $5/point.

I mean if the computer after the game can tell you how stupid you are, why wouldn't someone be able to bot this like chess?  

You want to try replaying our match now?  I'm holding a game open for you just in case.

sure seems like the meta when you play randoms is they just try to trap your back checkers. At least the lower rated ones.  

Everyone plays so close that it throws me off.  I play with mostly family and camping buddies and we are just throwing haymakers and talking ####.

I'm a haymaker guy - our matches should be bloody!

A spreadsheet that can help keep all the info organized.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1SBAtbDukoM1HMOod9P5DJe2ASFg9fnMHXE21gWB0ges/edit?usp=sharing

As long as the names are entered on the matches tab exactly as they are on the standings sheet, the standings (live) tab will automatically update and resort.

What was the final score of fatguy vs. cajun?

Actually, the sort isn't automatically working.  We'll have to tough it out :)

Chet’s a responsible fellow I’m sure he’ll do it next time he checks in.

@chet-- I vouched for you man, set us up the round two matchups!!

 

ETA:  If you want to really prove your worth you can also change the thread title to reflect that the tournament is under way.

Second round posted on the sheet--thanks for putting that together.  Basically, I took the top two on the signup list and made that a match, then the next two etc.  

@Joe Mammytook CDRJoe's spot for the purposes of setting the matches.

Thanks, chet.  Is it just me, or is BG having a hard time generating analysis and stats after each game?
