Is anyone interested?

It would have to be Advanced I guess. But possibly Classic or whatever ..

Generated map. Let me know what you think!

What sort of tournament?

Maybe an Equinox tournament for us down under?

Count me in.

You're right, a 15-player game is unrealistic for our current RSW player base. I've amended the Tournament Game specifications so that all three tournament games require exactly 6 players. The Classic tournament game is a 2-position multiplayer (so 12 positions total), while the Advanced tournament game is a 3-position multiplayer (18 positions total). This seems more in line with what we can realistically expect people to sign up for. :)

However, I can't easily amend the already-created game to match this, so I suggest you create a new Tournament Game with one of the new specs, and assuming 15 people don't come sign up for mineral6b, we let it quietly dissolve.

I looked at murry4c and having no choice but Skip Tracer makes the game worthless. I will not join under these circumstances.

Everyone's got their favorite character positions. Some people do enjoy playing Skip Tracer (and people have played that position to a win in the past, as evidenced in the RSW game history). Of course you're welcome to wait for the next game. :)

In a game with communication and co-operation Skippy can be fun. In a 3 position no communication it's utterly worthless.

murray3c is a normal, full-communication game. When there's co-operation is up to you, of course. :)

:roll: Well, I screwed that up. I read "members only" as "no-communication"! Good grief. Reaction to getting totally skunked in suburb7q before I could even get started. Okay, I'll give it another look knowing that communication is going to be on the table.

Ugh, missed sign up by a few hours. I'd been waiting for an advanced tournament game with all the default settings for a few months.
