Championship 66?
  • Hairspring ★ at 2022-12-10

    Shouldn't we have seen championship 66 start by now? (Or maybe I don't know how that works.)

    See this thread. Richard says “All championships start on 1st day of month.”

  • Hairspring ★ at 2022-12-11

    I understand that. I had thought that group 1 was the last to finish (maybe one of my games actually) but we were done in November. I was expecting a December start.

  • Hairspring ★ at 2022-12-11

    Actually, I just looked at the group tournament finish dates and, correct me if I am wrong, but it looks like we were done in October. It was just seeming like it had been kind of a long time since the end of the last championship, I guess that is why.

    So WHAT UP RICHARD

    Have we Twixt players upset the natural order? Are we forsaken? Can we be redeemed? Will a new championship ever start? (The last one ended in October of 2022.)

    My last TwixT video is talking about this championship!

    Ugh, you looked at THAT game. It was an embarrassment. I just threw pegs on the board my first three moves and it shows in the results. I do that a lot. My early game is terrible in general.

    But, more importantly, does anyone have a direct line to Richard to beg for the next championship. I miss it.

    You can find there also a little training: https://www.youtube.com/@bbzabstractgames/community

    Like a diagram of the day!

    I'll try to contact Richard!

    Apparently, the tournament has fewer than 30 registrants, so we are restricted to 3 or maybe 4 per year. The next one starts on Feb. 1

  • David J Bush ★ at 2023-01-08

    Here is the schedule.

    Just 3 per year: Febtuary, April, and July.

    Wow. Just 1 per year for each board size. This is a recent development, right? The page for TwixtPP says there are 50 participants in the size-24 championship — is there any way to “earn” more tournaments a year? Each one only takes about three or four months to finish.

    Actually, now that I look at that schedule David posted, it looks like every game only has one championship tournament per year now. Is this a change people were asking for? I personally loved having a new crop of games every few months without having to jump in on the monthlies, but if people like the higher stakes of the once-a-year championship I totally get that.
