Boards.ie Codenames World Cup Feb 2018

I was throwing an idea around about having some additional games with set teams, within a tournament structure, here on boards, in addition to the current games we have.

It would be standard double elimination tournament structure (so each team would get at least 2 shots to progress), based on 8 teams (we can increase or decrease this as needed), based on 2 people per team (1 cap, 1 guesser).

The 2 players in each team can take turns to captain and guess, or not - its up to each team who captains each of their games.

The structure and an idea of how it would work is below.



There is no need to hold the games in each phase one after the other. Like in the above chart, games 1 to 4 can be played in any order and any (reasonable) speed, and this can be sorted between the players in each game.

Its only after a team moves forward to the next round that we would need to set 'play your game by X date' dates.

The 4 players in each match can arrange when to play their games, to suit all 4 players.

Sign up form here: https://goo.gl/forms/UKNhs0S9wSj2qRNj1

If you sign up and indicate your preference for being a captain or not, i will assign you to a team.

Ill announce the teams and first round of games once we have enough players. 8 is the minimum. 16 would be preferred. We can roll with anything in between however.

If it's knock out format, will there be premils if there are 5,6,7..ect. teams, I'm guessing a round robin format would take too long?

Its double elimination, so even if a team is beaten in the first game, they get another chance to progress in another branch of the tournament.

Not so much prelims, but yeah same principle of keeping people playing beyond their first game.

I've only played the once and it got assassin-ed pretty quick, so I don't really have much of a handle on how to play, but if you need a name to pad out the list for the first round, feel free to stick me in there to make up the numbers. And apologies to whichever poor sap pulls me on their team

Shouldn't that be " expectations, unlimited"?


(Am I getting the hang of this yet?)
