    How about an Intercontinental tournament with 10 players representing each continent?

    Name an island that isn't part of a continent.

    Why not make it more realistic and pit the US against the rest of the world?

    Because you have to go to place 23 on the player table to find someone flying the American flag.

    Well, if you want to be picky, #7 is actually an American. But I was really just joking.

    What's with the forum avatar? I guess you didn't listen to our advice, eh??

    Might be difficult to find 10 players from the Antarctic.

    I bet there's 10 people flying that flag. It seems to be a popular one.

    but seriously ...

    5 dutch players v the five best players from the rest of the world would be pretty good if all the dutchies played!

    this is a terrible idea - the europeans are much too strong here.

    the european continent has 13 of the best 20 players.

    even the best ten players from europe v the best ten from the rest of the world would still be a slaughter by the europeans.

    So make it like a clan challenge... not the BEST 10 from each place but maybe top 3 / middle 4/ and lower 3 that way it evens out

    The tournament is not compulsory. The first 10 players to enter from each continent will take part.
