Re: THE Game - still in trial - now Cincinnatti

Thanks Litotes, my first Asterisk'd tournament win. Thanks for managing here as well mate

The real thang in USO then. Maybe we can start with more than $100 in grand slams. $1000?

No asterisk as far as I'm concerned.

Higher amounts is of course possible. Lots of matches to bet on in slams. Wouldn't be any difference to me, I just scale up or down, but if others like the idea I'm game.

So are we going out of trial for USO? Litotes, are you managing?

I don't see much of a difference with the beginning amount. It is just a matter of a scaling factor.

I want to propose a rule which is more for the sake of completeness as I don't think people will place such bets. Only those bets can be placed, the result of which can be checked by the scoreline. For example, a bet of 'total points' or 'to be broken' are not allowed.

I haven't checked with Dylan yet. If he can't I can do it.

As for PMs on the final day, anyone can send them to me and I'll promise not to look at them until after the matches have started, if they mark clearly in the headline what it's about. Entirely optional, of course. If there's at least three potential winners it should be a moot point.

Good suggestion, we've seen no such bets yet but they would be a pain for the manager.

Re: THE Game - still in trial - now Cincinnatti

If the game manager (Litotes in this case) is up for it, we could just say PM bets are allowed at any time. I'd personally prefer to make bets in this thread, but we could make it optional.

Other than this, I think we're ready to end the trials and start it up. I'd say the starting amount at GS's should be $500. Gives us more to work with, and just gives GS versions of this game a special touch.

I'd prefer public bets the first days. But I guess PMs would be fine for those wanting the secrecy.

Btw, is it my imagination or did you just turn blue? I have a lousy memory for colour, but I remember you as red.

Sham Kay and Deathless Mortal have left the humans and now have superpowers. So yes, they turned blue
