    I know i keep nagging but now that the tourney page is up and
    running i still think a family tourney with 2 from each family would be
    cool. any suggestions??

    It's an interesting idea but I would prefer to see something more
    along the lines of the US vs ROW match but with individual countries.
    Perhaps 6 people making up a team for each country and then
    competing against other countries. I haven't thought about this fully
    (does it show?! ๐Ÿ˜€) but it could be a lot of fun.

    yep, thinking of that is a better suggestion because familys could still
    play in a team.

    good thinking

    How many families are there who play? Would say my girlfriend count
    as family?

    I quite like Mark's idea, I don't know how difficult it would be to set up
    under the current coding for the tournamants, but it would be cool if
    we could form our own teams and compete against each other. Say
    teams of four, then play round robin. The team with the most points
    wins, or for a longer tornament maybe have team knockouts. It would
    be cool if we could give our teams names and everything, maybe log
    this all to one player who is the team manager - or something like
    that.

    I am sure you could also have a "join a team" function if you are on
    you own and want to play, and and conversely a "find new players"
    function for those teams that do not have enough members to make
    up the entry requirement. This way you can have family teams and
    teams of any other type joining.

    At least you would know if you had any mates!!!

    How about a tournament with an America's Cup theme? Just a
    suggestion. ๐Ÿ˜›

    I second that. It would be cool to have a tournament where the U.S.
    played the Netherlands, Western Europe, Australia, etc. If we could
    break down loacations to managable and fairly equal groups this
    setup could be a lot of fun.

    would this not just be a more complexed USA v ROW though,

    Pulling for OneWorld? I am. It would be great to come to Seattle in 5
    years and see them defend.

    This is an interesting idea.

    I tried to make the tournament code as flexible as possible (hence
    the different type of tournaments), but it will not stretch to this.

    What I may do is create another version of it built for this purpose
    alone. I have to say, it would be cool.

    I do happen to have 2 weeks off work over christmas, so that should
    allow be to spend some late nights hacking - it will be at the bottom
    of my current list, but I will see what I can do.

    Russ,

    Thanks for the effort. But, do not neglect your Christmas cheer. I
    suppose that which ever country wins this tournament would be the
    defender next year. Then, all of the other countrys would fight for the
    right to challenge in '04. Sort of a round robin within the country, then
    each country winner would meet for the right to challenge the
    defender.

    Keep up the good work!

    Bill in the 'burgh.
