Japanese G1/ G1 quiz game

Recommended Posts

For the adventurous gamers out there (and I know there are more than a handful..) I warmly recommend the G1 game, a pre-Basho game. It appears to be one of those "totall crapshoot" games, but is it? The principle is simple-you have to guess a winner for each day of the basho IN ADVANCE. Ozeki and upwards can be guessed only from day 9 and onwards. All you have to know in Japanese is the kanji for the shikona. Enter your name , youer e-mail, then pick a rikishi for day 1, day 2, and so on down to day 15 and the substitutes.

Think about it-there are certain rikishi who always bloom in the second part of the basho, and vice versa.. Anyhow, it is one of the few games which has nearly no foreign players, but has more than 140 participants. Zenjimoto is the only one in Makuuchi, I'm languishing in Juryo, and my mate Tominishiki is in Makushita. A 10-5 is considered very good. Deadline is Sunday 16:00 JST.

Then, there is the most difficult of them all-the G1 quiz. You are asked 15 questions, and the correct number of answers are your wins. An 8-7 here can take the yusho. If anyone is interested, I will translate the entry form here. Again, Zenji is in Makuuchi, I am in Juryo, but with Doitsuyama, and I believe Zeokage is in Makushita.

Entry form for those who can:

OK, here are the rules:

01-1- Who will win the yusho?

01-2- Second choice for yusho winner

02-What will be the yusho record? (first choice is zensho, the rest is easy to easy.)

03- Asashouryuu's wins (First choice-zensho, other choices, number of wins. If it says 12~13, you get the drift..)

04- Hakuhou's wins

05-Tosanoumi's wins

06-Kotomitsuki's wins

07-Wakanosato's wins

08-Tamanoshima's wins

11-Kaihou's wins

12-Takamisakari's wins

13-Ama's wins

14-Kotoshoogiku's wins

15-Katayama's wins

Tie-breakers/subs

Thanks for thinking I'm Japanese, mate. I'm right below Zenjimoto. My 8-7 last basho let me stay on M7e.

Moti entered it in his post. And of course you always have Exil's invaluable Sumo Game Deadline page, also known as precious Sumo Game link collection...

Unfortunately for most, even on the excellent Exil web-page, everything seems to be written in Japanese ;-)

But I believe this may be the correct entry page.....

That's why there are tooltips. Move your mouse pointer on the Japanese name and a translation should appear. :-)

Only 5 players got a KK in the WHOLE game, all three divisions. 7 wins will get you a promotion, 4 wins or less will get you demoted. In- between seems to be limbo-land..
