First Annual Cafeathon

Postby Absolutely Adequate » Mon Oct 30, 2006 8:50 pm

The rules are simple. We will have 32 (or 64, if I get that much interest) players competing for one enormous prize.* 32 men enter, one man emerges.

There will be three games: Chess, Scrabble, and Heads-up Texas Hold 'em. It will be a best 2 out of 3 series. If you win Chess and Scrabble, you can get your butt kicked in Hold 'em.

You will play the same guy for each of the 3 games. Best of 3 moves on to the next level. There are a number of sites that have these games but I will check them all out as sign-ups go on and decree which sites are most user-friendly.

More details to come, but please use this thread as a sign up spot/suggestions re: poker since I don't know anything about the game.

*No actual prize given unless the cafe feels like giving an icon. And they never feel like giving an icon. I came up with a brilliant idea for a commisioner's forum and I didn't get a damn lightbulb...

I'm in, although I'd prefer Cribbage or Backgammon over Scrabble... But oh well. :-b
