    4. Chiyoshoma I can't remember the last time I was in first place after day 2!!
  10. good day all,The 2021 prize was sent this morning to our champion ChickyStarr.It's time for the once-a-year invite to the easiest picking (guessing) sumo game ever. No need for daily picks, no need for pre-basho picks; just a pair of picks will last a whole year!Here's how it works.The symbolic TORCH starts with the last rikishi and last rank on the 2022 HATSU BANZUKE (rikishi/rank at the bottom of jonokuchi). If the rikishi wins his bout (called a TORCH MATCH), he keeps the TORCH. If he loses, the TORCH is passed to the winner. Through the year, the TORCH will eventually make way up the banzuke as it is always passed to the winner. The object of the game is to pick the one rank and one rikishi you think will end up with the most points throughout the year's six bashos. Points are awarded to every rikishi and rank involved in a TORCH MATCH; AND to players who finish closest to the FINAL TORCH position at the end of the year.FINAL TORCH POINTS AT THE END OF THE 2022 KYUSHU BASHO:25 points if you picked the final TORCH holding rikishi.25 points if you picked the final TORCH holding rank.PLUS...10 points to the player(s) closest to the final TORCH holding rikishi.10 points to the player(s) closest to the final TORCH holding rank.9 points to the 2nd closest picks.8 points to the 3rd closest picks.7 points to the 4th closest picks.6 points to the 5th closest picks.5 points to the 6th closest picks.4 points to the 7th closest picks.3 points to the 8th closest picks.2 points to the 9th closest picks.1 point to the 10th closest picks.(so if my math is correct, a minimum of 110 points (55 rank/55 rikishi) are guaranteed to be handed out at the end of the year)TORCH MATCH POINTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR:3 points for every TORCH MATCH your chosen rikishi wins.3 points for every TORCH MATCH your chosen rank wins.1 point for every TORCH MATCH your chosen rikishi loses.1 point for every TORCH MATCH match your chosen rank loses.The player with the most points at the end of the year will get a prize.For historical reference, here's where the torch ended up in previous years:2006, J2w2007, Ms33w (highest position J7w)2008, J7e (highest position J6w)2009, J5e (highest position J3e)2010, Ms58e (highest position J3e)2011, J6e (highest position J4w)2012, J2e (highest position J1e)2013, Ms48e (highest position Ms4e)2014, Ms49e (highest position Ms3e)2015, J6w (highest position J1w)2016, J11e (highest position J6e)2017, Ms10w (highest position J13w)2018, Ms8e (highest position J2e)2019, J7e (highest position J4e)2020, Ms15w (highest position Ms1w)2021, J4w (highest position J1e)Highest number of points: 59 by Profomisakari in 2009.To play, please submit: 1) the rikishi you think will get the most points between now and the end of the 2022 Kyushu Basho. and 2) the rank you think will get the most points between now and the end of the 2022 Kyushu Basho.The deadline for entries is one minute before the first TORCH MATCH starts... JST. Send new entries or updated entries to shimodahito(at)yahoo.com, by message on this forum, or post on this thread. For players who miss the deadline, your 2021 picks will carry over to TORCHBEARER 2022 (as long as your rikishi pick is still active).A "wildcard" drone pick, by default will be the lowest rikishi and rank on the HATSU BANZUKE and cannot be selected by any other player.Good luck! The game is painless...one rank pick, one rikishi pick... no daily picks needed…. And a prize.15+ years and still going!-shimodahito

    TORCHBEARER 2022: invitation, rules, and your picks

    There's no TORCH MATCH on Day 1; so there's at least one extra day to enter or update picks. The deadline is one minute before Jk20E Aoifuji's first match. First TORCHBEARER of 2022:

    TORCHBEARER 2022: invitation, rules, and your picks

    It's nice to see some new players. Tell your friends. the wildcard default picks are: rikishi: Aoifuji rank: Jonokuchi 20 East ....and cannot be picked by anyone else. Also, the deadline to enter your picks is one minute before Jk20E Aoifuji has his first bout.

    TORCHBEARER 2022: invitation, rules, and your picks

    As arranged before his passing..... Kofuji-ICAN's rikishi pick is Nishikifuji (his highest ranking adapted rikishi). Kofuji-ICAN's rank pick is Sandanme 64 West (the average of all his active adapted rikishi's ranks). For every point he scores, a donation is made to the international cancer advocacy network (ICAN). For those curious, his adopted rikishi were always: rikishi with “kifuji” or “kofuji” in their shikona -- (Tsubakifuji, Nishikifuji, Masakifuji); and any rikishi from "Kofu-shi" in Yamanashi-ken -- (Ryuden).

    Guess Hokutofuji's Aite - January 2022 edition

    1. Onosho 2. Endo This game has stumbled across a good Aite-dude in Hokutofuji. He's not stagnant, but stable enough shuffling about the top half of the ranks.

    Kofuji Intai in all games

    Kofuji's memory continues in the TORCHBEARER game. As arranged before his passing..... Kofuji-ICAN's rikishi pick is his highest ranking adapted rikishi. Kofuji-ICAN's rank pick is the average of all his active adapted rikishi's ranks. For every TORCH point he scores, a donation is made to the international cancer advocacy network (ICAN). For those curious, his adopted rikishi were always: rikishi with “kifuji” or “kofuji” in their shikona -- (Tsubakifuji, Nishikifuji); and any rikishi from "Kofu-shi" in Yamanashi-ken -- (Ryuden). He was an elder of this forum and the automated sumo games... And hats off to Fukurou as well. Keep the entrees coming...
