I’m fine if they play too. The only easy information they would have is who is in each game. That’s not a big deal. As for points and such that could affect games they are in, that seems like a lot of work to win a tournament with nothing on the line except for fame among a small community of people. In other words, not likely to happen.

Even Malarky was considering joining a game to get it started (as stated elsewhere on the forum) and this was his tournament, so it can’t be that big of a deal.

I suppose they could rig the players in their games, but I also see that as unlikely for Round 2 (the other rounds are seeded).

I really appreciate it! But having a TD who isn't playing is really important just generally, I think. It's also partially for my own sanity, because its a lot easier to do the TD stuff when you're not also playing at the same time.

If HardAcre wants to play, I def won't stop him from doing so, but I'm going to stay out of the games from here on out.

You'll probably see me in tournaments in future, I join enough of them!

After having been eliminated never passing four centers as Turkey to CaptainMeme's Russia in round 1, I appreciate his generosity in helping the rest of us improve our standing! It was a most polite elimination, however. :) Thank you both for serving as TDs.

Aha, sorry about that! Best of luck in the rest of the rounds :D

We've managed to get the final R1 game up and running! So I will send out PMs asking for confirmation for Round 2 participation tomorrow. If I get replies quickly, I'll get the games set up by next Saturday, otherwise it'll be the Saturday after.

I got a great response to the call for players to fill the missing places in the final R1 game; a fair few more than I had open slots. There are a few of these players who are happy to just play one round to fill at some point or another, but there are also a number who would like to play the full tournament.

With that in mind, I'm going to update the rules to allow for a player to play two games in the same round if they have missed a previous round. This should also help with bringing each round to a multiple of seven.

I may make an exception for Round 4 on this front so that nobody has too much of an advantage - given that in R4 players have much more information about the scores they will need to advance.

If anyone has any thoughts on this, you're welcome to give them here!

I think that's a really creative solution to help keep boards filled and everything running smoothly. Your cat-herding efforts are greatly appreciated, Captain.

I think that your efforts in getting the President involved in raising awareness of the disappearance of previous directors has been extremely impressive.

I'm sure the Biden Personal Police (FBI) are involved.

I'm away for the week from the 30th til the 8th, so contact with me may be slow over that time. I'll still be checking in on occasion so feel free to send me PMs if needed - if I'm needed urgently for something, please shoot me a message on Discord (CaptainMeme#8366). Would prefer if that's only done if it's extremely important as I'd like to be mostly off the grid :P
