Post by: jack208 on January 24, 2009, 08:36:49 am

There is an online tournament for Agricola ongoing now at the online Agricola website done by Chris Deotte (URL).



Just spoke to one of our Agricola kings - aanemesis - yesterday (during our OTK session) and asked if he's taking part. [:P]

Hi All,



As some of you may know there is currently an online Agricola tournament taking place on the following website created by Chris Deotte (username cdeotte):



http://www.ccom.ucsd.edu/~cdeotte/Games/Board1/Agricola.html



The site is absolutely awesome, has 13 rooms (many of which record every action of every game), keeps stats for each user and is open to the public. Chris works to improve the site and the gameplay almost daily, moreover, he listens, takes suggestions and implements them; I couldn;t imagaine a better webhost. If you like agricola and are looking for opponents at any time of the day, come check it out.



The tournament takes place over a series of three rounds. Each round, every player plays three games ve unique opponents and the top finishers move on to the next round, culminating in a 3rd round with the top three players competing in a three game series.



All the games take place on the site and are recorded - additionally we use the forum to schedule each game. We just finished Round 1 and twelve people have qualified for round 2.



View the round 1 resuls here:

Many of those that have made it to round 2 are BGG regulars:



Marc Thomspon (BGG handle = Fugitive_Unknown)
Chris Deotte (LetsGame/Chris)
Steve Janecek (mapleleafbc/Maple)
Ken Rothstein (RicoSuave/Ken)
Mike K (Coyotek4)
Dan Schwab (Schwza)
Sonny Sonny (LetsDance)
(the other six may be disguised - if you are, let me know :P)



Please wish them luck and check out the site and the forum if you are interested in finding out more about the tourney or playing an amazingly smooth game of Agricola :).



Additionally, if you have any questions about the tournament feel free to message me. Any questions about the site itself, please contact "the genius" directly = Chris (cdeotte)



Thanks and have fun!
Steve/Maple

I've not signed up for that tournament, as most other guys there are in time zones different from ours. But if you guys want to have a mini tournament, I'll be happy to join.
