    Only 11 entrants needed to start this interesting thematic tournament!

    Shouldn't be difficult to find those amongst more than 500 1800+ players ......

    So join Tournament 9489. It will be fun!

    That tourney has been around forever. I thought they were supposed to start 30 days after they were created?!

    Too many level crossings I suspect.

    Obviously not!

    Maybe after 3 more entrants the tournament will start.
    Instead of four octets we can play with three.....

    So, come on and join!

    NICE!!! The tournament has started! A little more heavy than expected.
    Instead of a few octets, we have now two "eleventets"!

    Good luck everybody!

    I don't wish to be pedantic - correction: I do wish to be pedantic - but the proper name for an 'eleventet' is undectet

    Thanks, I couldn't find the word so quickly.
    As a musician I know of course the trio, quartet, quintet ....., nonet and dectet.
    I also know the dodecatet (12), but didn't remember the one for 11.
