    German Sumotipspiel Banzuke Natsu 2005 released

    This post is to announce my retirement from TipSpiel. Thanks for the fun, in particular to the other Matta Masters. TipSpiel remains the only Sumo Game where I ever won a Yusho. best wishes, jomojo

    Is the starting point of expectation forgotten?

    Hi Susanoo, yes the starting point of expectation has been long forgotten. However, do not be deterred by this, as your "awkward English" makes for fascinating surrealistic reading, in a similar vein to Jejima's babelfish daily mystic commentry during Benchsumo tournaments. Welcome to this Forum. I'm afraid my own non-existent Japanese is limited to "kachi-koshi" and "mawashi". I was wondering whether you would care to make your second topic in Forum your perspective on the hotly debated "best cheese to eat with Benchsumo" discussion? This likewise surprisingly deep topic is currently being aired on another Sumo Games thread. jomojo

    New Bench Banzuke

    Yes, it looks like there will be a reincarnation. He mentions something about the "Jonidan Recycling Machine" here .... http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/bench...o/message/16988 jomojo

    Riskishi in the hole

    I disagree with all of the above. 1) I think transfers will develop in a really interesting way when we begin to have playerdrones, playerghosts and dronedones in our midst, as these rikishi will all be up for grabs for the second week. 2) East versus West represents the game's ruling elite versus the elite of tomorrow and yesterday. And mirrors the demotions-promotions side of things, ie. if West beats East in the first week you're gonna need to be really good on the West side to move up to east next basho. 3) Doitsuyama provides us all with a great benchmark in playing these games. We are honoured to have him in our midst. 4) There is the "curse of the Yokozuna", which Jejima has referred to. All you need to do is find one good hole each day, and do no worse than Doitsuy-asashoryu in the RAF, and the win is yours. 5) I fear "golden rikishi" jokes. Hole name works fine. 6) Someone else should buy that beer for you, Jejima. Thanks for all your work on this. jomojo

    Rikishi in the Hole

    Full match-ups for Day 15: Bout 1 - Hw Zeokage v Gw Nishinoshima Bout 2 - Fw Aderchelseamaru v Ew Sekihiryu Bout 3 - Dw Gusoyama v Cw Golynohana Bout 4 - Bw Jomojo v Aw Jakusotsu Bout 5 - Ge Azumaryu v He Jejima Bout 6 - Ee Gernobono v Fe Oshirokita Bout 7 - Ce Zenjimoto v De Hamanoyama Bout 8 - Ae Doitsuyama v Be Kintamayama Watch Bouts 6 and 8 for the Yusho contest outcome among East side "old-timers" Doitsuyama and Gernobono. Watch Bouts 1 and 2 for who will win the West side competition - all four contestents are in the running for top dog of the sumogame "newbies". Bout 4 - Can Jakusotsu stop jomojo from gaining his eighth win? Bout 5 - Can Jejima pull ahead from Kintamayama with a seventh win and claim the all-important (no demotion) 4th position on the East side?

    Incidentally the only one at 6-4 behind 5 at 7-3 and before 3 at 5-5... <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Yes, there is a very even leaderboard, providing players in this new game with an exciting race to the finish line. jomojo

    Good point. By the way, please could you add an extra point to my Technique Prize score for correctly predicting a Loss for Kotonowaka today. cheers, jomojo

    Rikishi in the Hole

    Don't forget the following rules, when you send in your entries for tomorrow's bouts. jomojo Transfer window rules.... When a player send in their entry for day 7, they may also include a list of any rikishi on their team that they wish to ditch (from 0 - 8). Drones will automatically ditch all four of their rikishi. However players should note that they will keep these rikishi for days 7 AND 8. (So will only have a changed team after the Championship Flag part of the Basho has been completed). Along with the Day 7 results, I will give the list of all rikishi back in the 'pool'. These include all the rikishi which were previously not on a team, all rikishi previously belonging to drones, and all the rikishi returned by the players. Then along with their Day 8 entries, ALL players (including those who haven't ditched anyone) should rank the 'pool' players in order of preference - including the rikishi that they have personally ditched. Then along with the day 8 results, Jejima will publish the list of the new teams, to be used from day 9 until the end of the basho.

    Games you love to play

    Well, I think I got six make-koshi in a row in Benchsumo last year, which is quite a feat. Apart from that, I've also had a few faux-pas in Tip Spiel recently. I never amount to much in GISP and ISP normally catches me out somewhere along the line too. I'm curious to know what happened with ODDSUMO too. Any news? jomojo

    Ah! Looks like I am the only Western beta-tester to have listed Tochiazuma among the top 30 picks, while Tochiazuma has failed to make it into the top 40 in any of the Eastern beta-testers lists. Was this the stroke of genius or delusion on my part? Doh! jomojo

    An idea for a new sumo game

    (Feeling artistic...) how about calling this game: Pick 'n' Mix Sumo jomojo
