mods ( those that have access to the site in greater detail than we low folk )
would set up a game up the 10th move..then it would be like tournament..you could join to play the game...all playing the same game...then there would be one winner and at the end the name of the famous ...[text shortened]... ave three of four of these games a month...and they could just be for fun..no rating to them...
Actually, forum and game mods don't have that much info that would help them spot these great games. There are a lot of users here at RHP that spot stuff very quick, and any of them could help you find some good games for your idea.
Ever notice how someone will post a FEN and ask advice, and some RHP user comes in and tells them not to talk about a game in progress, or even find the original user of said FEN position... lots of users here at RHP are able to find things I would have never figured out, and they don't need to be a mod to do it.
If you have an idea for this, just ask... many of the users here can probably find what you're looking for, and it's up to Russ to let you run a tourney. There is one started in the sports forum you might even want to check out.
