Hello DR!

 

Although it is not organised by the tournament committee, would you like to play a friendly game to battle out the 3th place? I would enjoy to.

 

Hope to hear from you,

 

Max

There is still a lot of rumour around Christmas eve for this game. Unsure where that comes from but fact is DSpy is still closing the bets.

Hmm… Christmas Eve is the anniversary of something important.  Or something that used to be important.  It’s at least something fun to remember.   :)

 ... lol! :D  ... stratego is a game of guess and predictions .... very serious and no joke  :D  .... everybody was wondering about the absence of Darthremark .... but it looks like it is more the absence of Maxroelofs that is most perceivable now .... hey Max where are you? ... Any of his dutch friends can contact him?


If you don't know where you go ... you have a lot of chance to arrive elsewhere ...

You know I signed on last night around 11pm eastern time wondering if by chance you would be there. :)   As I recall it was about that time when we cooked up the idea.  Last night was the 17th anniversary.

Unfortunately, this may have to wait until 2018 after all, so Napoleon might be clairvoyant.  ;)
 
I'm off from work the next few days for the holiday, but am very busy. At this point it looks like the weekend of January 13th will be the next flexible scheduling window for me.  I'll let you know if it's good as we get closer.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...


a tournament was held in which a contest of considerable importance to the tournament (it was for 3rd place) was never played because it was reported that each of the contestants thought the other smelled like a pig, or something. The exact details of the non-played game are sadly lost to history. All we really know is that the now infamous contest failed to locate an agreeable battlefield in the spacetime continuum in which to wage their mighty battle, and when DSpy turned off the betting it seemed as if the final epitaph had been written on our poor game.

Much continued to be discussed about the missing match for the next weeks and months. Then the memory faded. It was the fall of 2014, over three years ago.

Fast forward to today. The hoopla is back! The competitors for the long lost match have finally agreed to meet on the 3rd rock from the sun in the current realm at a soon date and time it is being reported.

The tournament is long closed and prizes awarded. But the peanut gallery is once again active and banging the drums for an on-the-field result of this longest-awaited match in history. Sure it will only be for closure but maybe DSpy or someone else can even open up the betting.... :D

battle out the 3th place?

I don't think anybody even remembers what tourney this ever was, Gary, or whoever actually won it. But that does no longer matter. This game will always be THE tournamentgame on this site... whoever wins this will truly gain eternal honor :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r: B) :rolleyes: :lol:  :D.

Can someone briefly explain to me the whole point of this topic? Which tournament does this 3rd place refer to and why did the game not take place at the time of the tournament?

Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is.

As I said, nobody has a clue I think but that does no longer matter... we're way passed those questions now... this game has turned into a Legend by itself, it's great Greek rhetorical philosophy :o :lol: :D

It's really hard to believe it's been this long...

Surely it can't be that famous.   :)

Hey both,

 

If none of you proposes a date it looks like it will be postponed again. What about january 1st, 2018 19:00 gmt? If not ok please make a counterproposal.

Read up, Napoleon:

but am very busy. At this point it looks like the weekend of January 13th will be the next flexible scheduling window for me. 

But what you're really trying to plea here is PLEASE play in 2018 for your prediction will come true then.

 

I say relax. It's a full year. No need to be that desperate to start from Jan 1st on scheduling.

 

Any more bets going? 2019 is odds 1:1000 now so that looks Bitcoiny...
