  1. Flohru, the winner of the Nagoya Game 21, is also leading both the "Rolling Ranking" and the "Annual Ranking" ahead of Profomisakari and Chankomafuji. Note also the strong debut of Takanorappa with an impressive TB score. 

    Thank you all for participating. See you in September for the Aki Basho.

  2. There we are! We have 31 participants again. We will be missing Mmiokasazuma, Nekonoyama, Peeter, Gansekiwa, Suwihuto, Tenshinhan, Tochiyatsu, and Unkonoyoma, but we can welcome @Takanorappa

    At the risk of repeating myself, as is now customary, Profomisakari will be in charge of the updates until the end of the Basho and below are the three usual tables: the SUMMARY OF ALL THE CHOICES, the RECAP OF YOUR INDIVIDUAL PICKS (in order of submission), and the DEVIATIONS (the higher the total, the more unique the choices).

  3. Slightly less than 30 hours to go and we have 23 registered playersTochinofuji, Asojima, ChickyStarr, Karasukurai, Sumo Spiffy,   Athenayama, Shatsume, Chankomafuji, Chartorenji, Kujo, Kellyama, Hoshotakamoto, Hakuryuho, Oortael, RaeucherLax, Profomisakari, shimodahito, ScreechingOwl, chishafuwaku, Achiyama, Susanoo, Flohru, and Hakuhonofan.

    And so, we are still hoping for the following veterans join us: @Asapedroryu @Benihana  @Fujisan @Mmikasazuma @Nekonoyama  @Peeter  @Rocks (aka Gansekiiwa)   @Suwihuto @Tenshinhan Tochiyatsu  @Unkonoyama @WAKATAKE  @Wamahada @Yarimotsu

    Which doesn't mean newcomers are not welcome ;-)


  4. We are half-way through the registration period, and we have 8 registered players:  Tochinofuji, Asojima, ChickyStarr, Karasukurai, Sumo Spiffy, Athenayama, Shatsume, and Chankomafuji.

    Which means we are still counting on the participation of: @Achiyama @Asapedroryu @Benihana @Chartorenji @chishafuwaku @Flohru @Fujisan @Hakuhonofan @Hakuryuho @Hoshotakamoto @Kellyama @Kujo @Mmikasazuma @Nekonoyama @Oortael @Peeter @Profomisakari @RaeucherLax @Rocks (aka Gansekiiwa) @ScreechingOwl @shimodahito @Susanoo @Suwihuto @Tenshinhan Tochiyatsu  @Unkonoyama @WAKATAKE  @Wamahada @Yarimotsu

  5. Welcome to Game 21 for the Nagoya 2022 Basho.

    Not as promptly as expected (sorry!), I am launching the game today and Profomisakari will be back for the day to day comments.

    So, let's play!

     

    HOW TO PLAY GAME 21

     

    Shortly after the Banzuke is published, 21 potential bouts are selected by the admins. You just have to decide which bouts will or will not take place and, if they will, who you think will be the winners.

     

    Each correct pick will earn you one point. If a Rikishi is listed in one of the potential bouts but never appears on the Torikumi for the 15 days of the Basho, the bout will not count for the allocation of points (minor rules adjustment). If two or more entrants end up with the same number of correct picks, the two following tiebreaker rules will apply:

    • TB1: entrants will earn TB points for their ability to spot winning outsiders (i.e. the fewer players pick up a Rikishi the more points you score) and the entrant with most TB points will be the winner.

    • TB2: if the first tiebreaker does not suffice to separate them, the entrant with the earliest submission time will be declared the winner.

     

    The deadline to play is the Friday before Shonichi at 11 AM (JST), 2 AM (UTC)

     

    If you want to play, simply click the link below. it will take you to a multiple-choice form that will offer you three choices for each bout: 

    • A if you think the first Rikishi will win

    • B if you think the second Rikishi will win

    • X if you think the bout will not take place

     

    In addition to your picks and your Shikona, the form will ask for a valid email address. The reason for this request is (a) to allow the system to send you a copy of your picks and (b) to allow you to update your choices until the deadline by clicking the “Edit Response'' button that is in the email.

     

    Besides, after you have submitted your choices, you will have access to global selection statistics (not individual player’s picks).

     

    So, if you want to play for the upcoming Nagoya Basho, HERE IS THE LINK.

     

    The deadline to play is Friday 8 July at 11 AM (JST), 2 AM (UTC)

     

    To help you prepare your picks before getting to the form itself, here are the bouts for the upcoming Basho:

    And again, if you find that the game is more fun if you can have an idea of the picks of the other players, you can see the minute-by-minute evolution of the choices FOLLOWING THIS LINK.

    Good luck to all.

  6. And here are the updated rankings too.

    In the "Rolling Ranking", newcomer Sumo Spiffy has taken the lead while Hakuryuho has caught up with Flohru who remains in second place thanks to a better TB score.

    In the "Annual ranking", Flohru and Hakuryuho are tied at the top, Flohru remaining in first place thanks - again - to a better TB score. They are joined on the box by Profomisakari who is now in third place thanks to - you guessed it - a stronger TB score than Oortael. Note also that Fujisan's performance means entering the Top-10 (from rank 22).

    Thank you all for participating. See you in July.

  13. Only 5 players registered after 4 days: Tochinofuji, Asojima, Hoshotakamoto, Yarimotsu, and RaeucherLax.

    Let's hope it is only procrastination or peoople still in shock after they saw the May Banzuke.

    I don't think it makes sense to have "average" in the headers of the yearly ranking if they are just sum totals?

    The joys of copy-pasting... :'-( Correction made.

    Thank you also for your comment.

  15. Also, here is something new.

    Since Game 21 is not properly suited to establish a Banzuke, but (a) I know some of you are keen on statistics and (b) I would like to ensure as much regular participation as possible, I suggest introducing a ranking system (in fact, two ranking systems):

    6 Basho Rolling Ranking 2022 Ranking
    Shikona Average Points Average TB # of Basho Shikona Total Points Total TB # of Basho
    Flohru 13 176.5 2 Flohru 26 353 2

    chishafuwaku 6 86 2 Chartorenji 7 88 1
    Suwihuto 6 77 1 Suwihuto 6 77 1

    For the Rolling ranking, the number of Basho is the second tiebreaker, the highest number being better.

    For the yearly ranking, the usual rules apply.

    PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.

  16. Welcome to Game 21 for the Natsu 2022 Basho.

    As is now customary, I am launching the game today and Profomisakari will be back for the day to day comments.

    So, let's play!

     

    HOW TO PLAY GAME 21

     

    Shortly after the Banzuke is published, 21 potential bouts are selected by the admins. You just have to decide which bouts will or will not take place and, if they will, who you think will be the winners.

     

    Each correct pick will earn you one point. If a Rikishi is listed in one of the potential bouts but never appears on the Torikumi for the 15 days of the Basho, the bout will be counted as correct for all the players. If two or more entrants end up with the same number of correct picks, the two following tiebreaker rules will apply:

    • TB1: entrants will earn TB points for their ability to spot winning outsiders (i.e. the fewer players pick up a Rikishi the more points you score) and the entrant with most TB points will be the winner.

    • TB2: if the first tiebreaker does not suffice to separate them, the entrant with the earliest submission time will be declared the winner.

     

    The deadline to play is the Friday before Shonichi at 11 AM (JST), 2 AM (UTC)

     

    If you want to play, simply click the link below. it will take you to a multiple-choice form that will offer you three choices for each bout: 

    • A if you think the first Rikishi will win

    • B if you think the second Rikishi will win

    • X if you think the bout will not take place

     

    In addition to your picks and your Shikona, the form will ask for a valid email address. The reason for this request is (a) to allow the system to send you a copy of your picks and (b) to allow you to update your choices until the deadline by clicking the “Edit Response'' button that is in the email.

     

    Besides, after you have submitted your choices, you will have access to global selection statistics (not individual player’s picks).

     

    So, if you want to play for the upcoming Haru Basho, HERE IS THE LINK.

     

    The deadline to play is Friday 6 May at 11 AM (JST), 2 AM (UTC)

     

    To help you prepare your picks before getting to the form itself, here are the bouts for the upcoming Basho:

    And if you find that the game is more fun if you can have an idea of the picks of the other players, you can see the minute-by-minute evolution of the choices FOLLOWING THIS LINK.

    Good luck to all.
