Sekitori Sweepstake - September 2023

Recommended Posts

To play this game, just say that you are playing, and that's it. 

Just before the start of the next basho, I will make a random draw of all Ozumo sekitori (rikishi in Makunouchi and Juryo) to be given to the active players of this game.

You will then score the same as that drawn rikishi.

New / Returning players to the game, will be given a rikishi from Makushita to represent them in Mae-zumo.

Rule to be aware of....

If your sweepstake rikishi declares himself intai during a basho (as Tochinoshin did in May 2023), then so do you (as poor Djodjoyoshi found himself doing, thanks to the aforesaid Tochinoshin.).

Currently, we are excluding Ozumo rikishi who do not appear on the day 1 torikumi. However, if we ever have 70 active players, this will no longer be the case - and you may find yourself sitting out of a tournament, nursing an injury, for Covid, or because you were caught gambling when you were not meant to, and so are being punished accordingly. Your next banzuke position will be based on what happens to your sweepstake rikishi. So, if you get a 'resting' Yokozuna or someone with Covid, you are likely to keep your rank. If, you get a rikishi being punished, or having to pull out for an injury (and they are not 'Yokozuna'-protected), you will score 0-0-15, and drop accordingly. There might even be an instance when there is a greyed out spot on the banzuke, due to a late 'banishment' for a serious offence (or a belated intai) when we make the draw for the '70'. If you get that rikishi - you are also 'banished' or have declared a late intai. It's all pure luck :-)

New players are welcome to join the fun - but they will have to start in mae-zumo. They will be given a random Makushita rikishi in the Sweepstake.
