THE BATTLE BETWEEN THE GENERATIONS - Finished

Postby Pedros » 27 Apr 2010, 08:19

For the final results and table, see viewtopic.php?f=27&t=12768#p186492 Congratulations to We slept with all your mothers, representing the Oldies, on a resounding victory

A lighthearted challenge from the Whippersnappers to the Oldies has now become deadly serious, with WarSmith challenging the winner on behalf of the in-betweens (previous discussion in the Oldies topic at viewtopic.php?f=18&t=12687; there must be one in Students as well!)

3-a-side in a game was always going to be a bit silly, so on behalf of the Oldies I propose an age-based Doubles tournament under the same rules as Rick's Doubles tournament (viewtopic.php?f=27&t=8770&start=0), with 3 pairs on each side and 3 matches going on simultaneously. This is now the thread for discussion and abuse about this challenge!

The games
The games are Battle of the Generations 1/2/3

The in-betweeners will consider anyone between 20 and 40 (open to a little le-way on either side of course), and we'll need a better name than 'in-between' too..
Come-on the silent majority: lets not let these oldies and whippersnappers hog all the limelight!
Who's with me?

Hello War Smith. I might be what your looking for. But this is bearing in mind that we will have to wait until the oldie - whippersnappers battle is over...

Another 'In-betweener' here, willing to take up the challenge.
So far the only Playdip player to survive an attack by armies, fleets and an ax.

OK, so I'm guessing they would be Anonymous and Password? Also who would be the role of Rick Leeds?

Yes - anon PW definitely. We'll have to find somebody responsible who's willing to take the role - we could ask Rick, but he's totally snowed under at present and I doubt could do it. It's not actually a big job, but I know he's hardly managing his own moves at present.
