After a rough and wild ride through the regular Fall season (2016), the titans have emerged from the settling dust of dispute, the giants among the gladiators, the toughest from the tournament, congratulations go to:

 

1) constrictor

2) mrbrainiac

3) Wogomite

4) astros

5) josephwhite

6) The Prof

 

These are the final six contestants who will participate in the NASF Fall 2016 Playoffs.

 

But wait! there is more great news:

 

Congratulations to all of our participants who, through the thick and thin, enduring bludgeoning and battle, smiling in the face of adversity and violence, have remained standing tall after weeks of competition! (Okay, so a few of you have complained that you had to ride broken down buses to your matches instead of having personal access to our private NASF jumbo jet…we’ll see what we can do about that in the future). So, our remaining contestants have earned the privilege to play their final matches in the Bowl, and it is an honor for the NASF to present the following events:

 

The Marshal Bowl: #1 Constrictor vs. #3 --Wogomite--

 

The General Bowl: #2 mrbrainiac vs. #5 josephwhite

 

The Colonel Bowl: #4 astros vs. #6 The Prof

 

The Major Bowl:  #7 Robmatthews15 vs. #8 General Rascal

 

The Captain Bowl:  #9 MTinsley vs. #10 Texaspete09

 

The Lieutenant Bowl:  #11 Steelers vs. #12 Billionthego

 

The Sergeant Bowl:  #13 njphillips12 vs. #14 Silent Slayer

 

The Miner Bowl:  #15 queenbee1 vs. #16 8oo8

 

And in a feat which may possibly be covered by both The Guiness Book of World Records AND Ripley’s Believe it or Not, defying all bounds of gravity, science, and logic:

 

The Scout Bowl with #17 Gwynplaine vs. #17 Gwynplaine

Who is going to win this one, folks?!

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE SCHEDULE!

Wouldn't be great if non-players could watch the playoff matches (in real-time and a recording)? Is there a way to do this?

Hail to thee, General Rascal!  :)   First and most important is that you would need to have the permission of your opponent to "video" the match. Upon this agreement, you must determine if you have a method or technology on your computer that will allow you to screen record the event. If you use MacBook/Apple, then Quicktime used to have a function where you could screen record. It takes up a lot of memory, however, but you would be able to do this procedure. If you are Windows based, send a PM to QueenBee1 who might have some good advice for you about affordable and effective programs that do the job! VLC was also supposed to be able to do a screen record, but I was unable to get it to work on my system. Then, you could upload the approved video to YouTube.

 

As for live, this could be problematic and could possibly open a can of worms that may be catastrophic. The ideal situation for a live broadcast would be with two opponents in the same room, playing on a traditional Stratego gameboard, with two separate cameras trained in on each side of the board for audience viewing pleasure–both players would then be absolutely unable to give in to the temptation to gain an unfair advantage: no earpieces, no mobile phones, no hidden video aides, etc.

 

Please let me and the committee know what you decide upon doing. Thank you.

When are you free this week? I have a pertty busy schedule but give me some times that work for you so I can see when you are most free. I can always do late at night or early in the morning. I will be on here off and on tonight after 9pm I will be free if you want to jump on here and see if we can catch each other.

Wogomite, the best times for me would be Saturday either around 11:30am, or after 9:00pm EST.  Sunday after 5:00pm should work too.  Let me know what works for you.

Prof, Your Saturday time slot will work if the around 11:30 would allow for an hour and a half. I put my kids down for a nap around noon and sometimes have to show more patience in getting them to sleep then I do playing Stratego. Could our arrangement be for 1pm est Saturday?
