I was just thinking that a tournament between the biggest bullboard posters would be fun. Those members with a minimum of 250 posts are invited.

This invitation is extended to:

C. Urbanus
Master Rosh
Jef
James
Custardchuk
Arbiter
Rockefeller

What do you say? Any suggestions for format? I'm not a big organizer, I'm just the Ideasman.

I'm in.  I'd love to see a round robin format or something a little out of the ordinary.

Given the relatively low number of qualifying participants (and my earlier rant on the subject) I would suggest that this would be a perfect field for a full round robin (every entrant plays every other entrant and the top half then play a direct elimination semi/final(s).

E-Play (presiding you want to keep the tournament on the bullboard and not use some third party gaming system or intermediate protocol (Instant Messangers, ICQ, ) would suggest competitors submit a throw (or series of throws) to a neutral third party who resolves and publishes them both at the same time. Players keep re-submitting throws (or series of throws) until the match is decided.

Depending on the time limit for each turn it could take a while, but it would certainly be fascinating to watch, and would be an unparallelled demonstration of the highest level RPS strategy seen in quite a while.

Provided there is interest (and everyone can agree on a set of rules) I'd be happy to facilitate.

Jeff would probably be the "biggest" bullboard poster on your list but 'Buddha' Rankin is definately the biggest bullboard poster that I personaly know off.
Just taking the mickey, Rock.
I'm happy to play my next door neighbour's grandma. Who wouldn't want to play in this field?
I'm also happy for Brad to oversee proceedings, he proved to be an impartial referee at Toronto, despite my pleadings.
I'd like to nominate Arbiter as Tournament Secretary. In keeping with his wish for something out of the ordinary, I think it would be good for Arbiter to experience something out of the ordinary.
Rosh may be a little difficult to get. He's proved he will do anything to avoid a confrontation with Urbanus, Arbiter and myself.
As the ideas man, Rock, it should probably be up to you to nominate the stakes, the one sticking point I see.

Brad,

I believe you are the perfect person to facilitate this sort of tournament. As we discuss rules, I hope you can steer us in the direction that would be best fitted for our E-Tourney.

Regarding stakes... we could all throw in some cash via paypal, and the winner could take the bounty. Of course the winner gets some nice bragging rights as well, and perhaps a title such as "Grand Champion Of The Masters Of The Bullboard 2004."

What do you think Rosh? Jef? James? Urbanus?

I second, third or fourth the motion to make Mr. Fox the facilitator, depending on what the current count is.

Before I agree to be a secretary, I'd need a better idea of what we need a secretary for in the first place.

I don't know about cash stakes; it would depend on how much.  It is right before Christmas after all.

I don't think it's fair that custardchuk took the mickey already.  I think he should give it back before we start.  Maybe it could go to the winner as part of the stakes.

I figure a secretary's job is to record the progress of games in order to resolve any misunderstanding that could occur should high winds taint any individuals record keeping systems.

I am in.

Now that I can get into the Bull Board to say that I am in.

Now excuse me, I must go back to training for the tournament.

If you need a body to fill out the field, I would be glad to volunteer. I realize my posting level is distressingly low, but my paucity of posts has been engineered to save the reading public undue stress.
 
Furthermore, I would be glad to bring a whole case of Mickey's.
Best,

No response from James, I notice.  Hopefully that means he's busy installing that network line I asked for.

Are you in Rosh?

How about you James?


I like the idea of a round robin. Do you want to play via rpsgame.com or email, or what?

How many rounds do you want to play at each level?

We don't have to play for money. We could play to avoid disgrace. For instance, the winner could add their new title to their signature line, while the losers have to add a predetermined line to theirs like "I'm a loser and {the winner} is a God among ants like me." Or something to that effect.

What are you're thoughts?

I am honored to receive your invitation, Rocky.  However, as you must surely know by now, I have retired from competitive RPS.  

Too bad.  The tournament sounds like a blast.  You know, I always had a sneaking suspicion that the players for the International Invitationals were chosen along similar lines (number of Bull Board posts.)

Surely you don't consider this "competitive RPS?" This is no more "competitive RPS" than when you play amongst friends in your local watering hole.

This is a tournament where the pillars of the RPS community can enjoy the satisfaction of a schooled opponent.

Maybe we should just cancel the whole thing?
