  2. Sorry to hear this Karasukurai-zeki. I am grateful you have formally announced your decision to Intai. Of course, you are welcome to come back any time, if you'd like. Achiyama
  3. Not a problem Gaijingai-zeki, you'll be granted KOSHO status for 2022 Nagoya basho. Achiyama
  4. Hello Sumo Fans, Gamers, Supporters of The Underdog Game (TUG) and Friends, TUG Game will be on during 2022 Nagoya Basho! Sorry for the late invitation, but I hope we'll have a fast response. I'd appreciate anybody to bump this topic up if it goes down because of other postings. Thanks! I want to invite all supporters of TUG to play again in July 2022. It is important Everybody to submit a filled up Registration Form, so to let me know what would be your status during Nagoya 2022. If for any reason you won't be able to participate, please, fill the Registration Form, choosing the KOSHO option. In this way your rank from the previous Banzuke will be kept the same. I want to extend once again the Invitation to all Sumo fans and Gamers who would be curious to try TUG (The Underdog Game) for the FIRST time. In brief: How the Game is played: As soon as the first official daily Torikumi becomes available I'll Post on Sumoforum the daily TUG Torikumi and a Link, where you can make your daily selection of your MAIN pick, as well as your BACK-UP pick. Note #1: The back-up pick has to be different from your main pick and it will be used only in case your main pick wins by FUSEN (see the Game Rules on the next thread). Note #2: Those of you who choose the option to receive the daily Entry Form in an e-mail EVERYDAY, you can submit your picks from there. You don't need to have a Computer, you don't need access to Sumoforum. You can submit your picks from your e-mail, using a smart phone or a Tablet. Note #3: If the e-mail option from Survey Monkey is not working, I will e-mail the link with the Entry Form individually (not using a distribution list). Here is the link with the TUG Registration Form for 2022 Nagoya Basho: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DLW3NDN Best Regards and I hope to see more participants in TUG during 2022 Natsu Basho, Achiyama TUG Rijicho
