Maybe a tournament tab off the main page? It could be visible to everyone. It might peak interest in premium membership if they can see that there are tournaments and the winners are posted for all to see?

On that day we’ll say to Hell: “Have you had enough?”
And Hell will answer: “Is there more?”

This looks interesting. Will non-tournament players be able to watch the games in progress?

I did the letter assignment for the first two rounds. The boards look awesome!
What I can share with you is that in those two rounds boards 3 and 4 will be killers :twisted:

I swear to god, if I'm playing with Diplomat for the billionth time...

Well, I guess I'll know soon enough anyway. Whichever neighbour attacks me outright at the start... ;)

I'm sooo waiting excitedly for this to take off. Half the fun will be trying to figure out, who you're playing against.
