I’m planning on running an online tournament on OCTGN if I can find enough people interested. I’d tentatively like to send out initial pairings next weekend, so jump over to FFG’s forums and the thread I started there with your OCTGN username if you’re interested. If you don’t have a FFG account and/or refuse to use their forums because of how horribly slow they are, feel free to post here as well. The tournament will be swiss,
but I haven’t decided on the exact scoring method yet (Update: now that the official tournament rules are posted, we will use those). As there are no prizes or any such things at stake, I plan on playing too. Should be good practice for regionals!
If you’re new to OCTGN, I found this website to be a useful resource when learning it myself.
Participants (OCTGN UN):
I’m excited by all of the participation! I’m hoping to post the round 1 pairings either Friday night or Saturday morning. Exact tournament rules will be posted at that time, unless FFG posts them between now and then. I will be double posting everything here and on the FFG forum thread linked above. Spread the word!
Gary Hall recently posted a blog with Nick Harrison that also goes through how to play on OCTGN. Also, I’m going to set the registration deadline for 11:59 pm EST on Thursday, 2/28. Basically, I’m going to go with the list as I have it when I get to it on Friday, so while you might be able to sneak it after midnight, post before the end of Thursday to be guaranteed a spot.
