And... we have a tie! Do we play a tie-breaker game?
MadMarx (31684 D (G))
23 Dec 17 UTC
Yes, either can make the game, please make it non-anon, and give it an F in the name rather than an S, thanks and good luck to you both!

Whatever works for the two of you, no rush...

Don’t forget I will announce a twist, as soon as one of you wins one more game!

Are we allowed to take a guess at what the twist is?
MadMarx (31684 D (G))
23 Dec 17 UTC
Absolutely, it’s carved in stone so guesses won’t affect it... If you want, I will reveal if anyone guesses correctly, but if that’s the case you only get one guess...

Well, my guess is that the winner has to play a superfinal against you, since you excluded yourself from the finals after playing in all the other games.

I think the twist is that I win.
MadMarx (31684 D (G))

Hmmm... It was never my intent to play beyond the first two rounds, my role was to knock as many people out of the tournament as I could and whoever was left standing would fight it out among themselves... That said, I knocked more out than I expected, and as it turned out there were no semi-final games, so if there is interest in a final showdown against me I would definitely be honored, but it will be a voluntarily thing and have no affect on champion status... So, I’ve added your idea as a second (voluntary) twist, your guess was incorrect, but I like the idea, thanks!
MadMarx (31684 D (G))
24 Dec 17 UTC
ghug, I learned more playing against you in this tournament than anyone else, so you have won the title of “Honorary Runner-up”... And, yes, that *is* something to write home about...

Did he teach you what moves not to make?
MadMarx (31684 D (G))
24 Dec 17 UTC
That too, Zybodia!! The first game he killed me extremely cleanly and efficiently, I didn’t even see it coming, he struck such fear in me that when he built an army in Brest in Autumn 1901 of our second game I was scared shitless of how he’d do it again (until he posted it was a misorder in global, which was a *huge* mistake)... Reminded me of one of the first times I played Rait where Rait NMR’d as Austria in spring 1901 and he had the balls to tell me that the NMR gave him an advantage since he now knew what all his neighbors were doing before he had to reveal what he was doing, I knew I was no match for that kind of confidence and ability to make a solid argument no matter the circumstance, I still fear that guy, like he’s going to take my lunch money if I ever accidentally make eye contact with him...
ghug (4202 D (B))
24 Dec 17 UTC
Army Brest is an underrated strategy. I highly recommend it.
MadMarx (31684 D (G))
24 Dec 17 UTC
and when you do it, own it, that’s the key...

For the record, the two finalists are:

1. The highest rated/ranked person to sign up.
2. The lowest rated/ranked person to sign up, so low, in fact, that a special exemption had to be granted since he did not meet the minimum standard of acceptable skill to be considered a worthwhile adversary.

Earlier when I likened the concept of this tournament to NCAA’s Marx Madness
Basketball Tournament, this sort of Cinderella story is exactly what I was hoping to allow for, however unlikely it would be to actually come about...

Hey, the final game has been played, I better announce the champion and the twist...

Playing with less than 7?
Does anyone know if we are able to play a game with less than 7 people? And if we can, does anyone know how we go about doing that? Our current game will only start if we have 7.
