    Do you collect BBM Sumo cards?

    I responded 'yes' because I used to collect them from 1997-1999 while I lived in Japan. I managed to complete the first set, but a box with my most important cards was lost in shipping when I returned to Canada. It was a lot of fun opening all those packets hoping to find the missing cards in my collection at the time. I found the last few I was missing in some local card collector shops. I still have a few unopened packets from that first series in 1997.

    Just seeing this now. Yes, as a former Aomori resident, with ties to Hirosaki, I'm proud of these guys! I wish I'd know about them while I was there. Didn't discover them until I returned to Canada.

    Sandanme Game Nagoya 2020

    The Sandanme Game will run again for Nagoya 2020. Please note the change in email address at the end of this post. I can still receive your messages at my shaw address but I'm transitioning to the gmail one. I have been very close to giving this game a kyujo for a few basho now but since some of you continue to take the time to send me entries, I feel compelled to keep it going. There may be a delay in getting the results to you but I will set up the game, record your entries, and compile and present the results. Hopefully, I can catch up on the banzuke making as well. Thanks for your patience and continuing interest in the game!Here is the usual invitation:For the Sandanme Game, please send me your list of 15 rikishi from the usual segments of the banzuke.Sd 1-5/6-10/11-15/16-20/21-25/26-30/31-35/36-40/41-45/46-5051-60/61-70/71-80/81-90 and 91-100+ (91-100 including tsukedashi if any)Your rikishi earn points for each win, for a kachikoshi record, for leading their group, and a bonus for the best scoring rikishi on each team based on how close they were to the yusho winning record. The result is adjusted so that the best possible score gets a 15-0 result.The drone Mirai knows the future and always selects the best rikishi in each group. This shows us what the best possible score would be at each stage of the game.The drone Genzai picks the most popular rikishi from each group. This drone has tended to score well.The drone Mukashi picks the rikishi in each group who had the best record last basho. This drone isn't expected to score well but sometimes surprises us.Send your entries to me at matsuorussellj@gmail.com before any of your selections enter the dohyo for their match (and preferably a few hours before that).
  12. This is the thread for the Pick The Yusho Winners (PTYW) game for Nagoya 2020. Please note the change in email address at the end of this post. I can still receive your messages at my shaw address but I'm transitioning to the gmail one.Until further notice, the game will run just as it has the last several times. I will compile the results and post them as best as I can on this thread.This is a pre-basho game where each player selects a rikishi from each of 8 sections of the banzuke. The player earns points for each win, each kachikoshi, and each yusho earned by their team of 8 rikishi. The sections of the banzuke are these:Sanyaku (Y through K)MaegashiraJuryoUpper Makushita (Ms1-15 ) (not including any tsukedashi of any rank)Lower Makushita (Ms16-60 plus tsukedashi if any - including Ms 10 or 15)Sandanme (plus tsukedashi if any)JonidanJonokuchiThat's it! Simple to understand, difficult to master. The hallmarks of any engaging game.Please send your 8 selections to me before the beginning of action on Shonichi.Itachi: matsuorussellj@gmail.com or by pm here at the forumAs a reminder, I am only a temporary caretaker of this game until Oshirokita can address the reconstruction of his system. All banzuke, website, and records updates will be on hold until then but the game itself and results postings will continue here on this thread.Good luck with your picks.

    BBM Sumo trading cards

    Hi Supplex, I was living in Japan from 1997-1999 and I collected the first set. I had all the cards except a few of the tegata ones which were pretty rare. Unfortunately, I shipped the most important cards in a separate box when I returned to Canada and that little box was the only one to get lost in the mail. All the tegata ones were lost. I still have some unopened packs though! And happy memories from the experience of striving for that complete set (not counting the tegata ones). I bought a few from the 2nd series but didn't put as much effort into completing that set.

    What a basho! Thanks to everyone who keeps this game running. I humbly accept the Makuuchi yusho, ZQoSA, and the Makuuchi Technique Prize. I'd especially like to thank Hakuho without whom this would not have been possible. Congratulations also to him. I look forward to next basho, with or without spectators in the kokugikan. Itachi ιΌ¬

    Pick The Yusho Winners Haru 2020

    This was the drone Genzai's 5th yusho since I took over. Torafujii and Flohru hare the jun-yusho. It's Torafujii's 8th and Flohru's 11th jun-yusho. The yusho winning score of 74 is just above the average winning score of 72.4 in the 43 basho I've run. (72.7 excluding the unoffical Aki 2019 one where the winner scored only 61)
