We are ready to start, and I'll post the randomised list shortly. Edit: done. Tick
The tournament is a 5-round Swiss tournament, and the person(people) at the top of the list after 5 rounds is/are the winner(s). Tie break is the result of the game between the tied players. Choose 'standard game' and 'no optional cards' (thank you irishdomer08).
The first round pairings have been randomly allocated and are listed in the next post, after which you will be paired with someone on the same score (or as near as possible). Ideally you'll alternate between the USSR and USA in successive games, although sometimes that won't be doable for everyone. Use the 45 day timer, but do try and move promptly. As organiser, I will nag and harry slowbies, and may arbitrarily rule a game over or forfeit if it's holding everyone up unfairly. Be prepared to settle in for the long haul, and accept we may still be playing this time next year...
There is a separate discussion thread to keep the tournament thread relatively clear here: http://www.pockettactics.com/forum/view ... 12&t=10174
