Gunboat Bonanza with Valis

#1 Post by Valis2501 » Mon Mar 16, 2020 7:58 pm

Hello,

I'm looking for 6 other players willing to play 21 games with me. All of them will be 10 points, hidden draw votes, classic map, anonymous, WTA-DSS, 1 excused turn, 48 hours deadlines (thus as long as you check once a day you won't miss a turn, even if you check early on Monday and don't check against until late Tuesday). Please have an RR of over 90. Must sign up for all 21 games.

This sounds amazing. I am sorely tempted but I suspect future-foodcoats would regret committing to 21 simultaneous gunboats... (And almost inevitably losing 210 points!)

I won't be able to participate, since my RR is 85%, and anyway i'm not sure i could manage 21 games at the same time, even if they are GB with 48 hours turns.
But just out of curiosity, why 21?

Superstition dictates that these sorts of things be in multiples of 7. I'd have preferred 49 which I've done before but I didn't want to scare too many people from joining.

@Valis -

I'd be willing to do this, but my RR is tanked right now because I missed a phase in a game when I got back from vacation and crashed hard. Leave it up to you if you want to let me in, but I am one of the better gunboat players around ;)

Also it might be cool to set it up as a "Tournament" somehow, tho i have no clue how the mechanics of that actually work.

(also, since it's filling fairly quickly, maybe there's some appetite for a "round 2" among a different group of 7 as well?)

One other question: does it make sense to try and get a mod to arrange it so all get each country 3x or is it better to just let it all rand?
