Yes, I know a proper 18XX tile should have a tile number.

N/A has set up a Brass tournament among members of the various GCL divisions; discussion of that can go here, as well as discussion of (and posting games for) a proposed wider format.

What about the idea of a brass sign in for each of us in the GCL on the Brass site. We cqn play games against the other GCL members and let the site calculate the rating. Any Brass gaming against non-GCL could continue under anyone's "broader" Brass on-line account.

This way, there isn't elimination if one has a bad game. And we all play each other frequently & let the Brass site calc our GCL standings.

This was an idea of Aliza's some time ago.


The way this works is that everyone sets up an alternate login on the Brass game site, with a clear consistent

For example, I set up a new Brass player account for GCL-Morganza

... and I started a new game:

http://brass.orderofthehammer.com/lobby.php?GameID=31848
Password: tutu
(Thanks to Tom for the suggested password. I have a long memory ;-) )

The general idea is that only "GCL" player accounts should play in these games, and over time we'll develop relative rankings that show how we do just relative to other GCL members and GCL-associated friends.

And note: while I'm posting these passwords in a moderately public place, please don't join these games unless you are a GCL member or regular contributor.

That's Tim Powers' fictional Samuel Coleridge "quoting" John Milton in _The Anubis Gates_.

I'd be very happy to participate in a larger Brass tournament. But the initial proposal (that GCLs each nominate their "best" Brass player - something I am more than clearly not!) wasn't something that I could be part of.

I'm not being clear: I'd be happy to be part of a larger amorphous "Let's Play Brass amongst GCLers" tournament. But I have no business in a "Let's see who the best Brass player in the GCL" tournament.

I love playing Brass. But I'm not good at it. (I'm signed up as GCL-rynelf.)

What I'm trying to get going here is IN ADDITION to Lee's tournament, not instead of it.

Re: GCL Brass Tournament Discussion
Sign me up for whatever. In the meantime, Eclipse will complete our mini-event and put 2 players forward for the present contest. That is, unless you are proposing aborting that and implementing a GCL League (heh heh) presently.

as Aliza said, this would be in addition to the current GCL wide tournament bracket, and would be a (presumably) continuously running GCL Brass league

I would play in this, in a heartbeat. Always up for Brass.

It's real simple:

(1) Subscribe to this thread (most people's BGG settings do this automatically when they post a comment.)

(2) Create an account on the Brass server with a GCL-specific userid (for example, the first game is between GCL-Morganza, GCL-lambolt, GCL-Jonathan, and GCL-BennyD -- a mix of BGG userids and Real.Names)

(3) Either wait for people to post games for you to join, or start a new "private" game and post the game password here. 2p, 3p, 4p -- whatever your heart desires.

I called my game "All GCL 1", but people can use any naming convention they like. Putting "GCL" in the title will make the games easier to identify, though. (There were about 60 games between Amoeba and Phoenix over the past year, which also all had "GCL" in the title, but they used the old set of userids.)

BTW, I like having my browser remember my password for the game site, so I've got one browser (Chrome) remembering my "normal" password, and one browser (Opera) remembering my GCL password.

Anyone else having a problem with the site not allowing you to use the same password twice?

I didn't try. Did have to set up an additional e-mail for the new account, though.

Gmail and many other email systems let you use "+" addressing -- so someuser@isp.net and someuser+brass@isp.net will both work. (The part of the address after the "+" can be used for email filtering or other purposes.) The Brass server isn't set up to reject duplicate accounts on the same address if you use "+" addresses.

The Eclipse games are getting started. We're having 5 3p games to determine our best qualified 2 representatives. I'll report back here when we've wrapped it up.

Eclipse has 5 games in our mini-tourney to produce the top 2 players. We're in the midst of this and I don't want to commit to additional games at the moment.

I have a slight preference for continuing to advance the top 2 from each game, and randomizing the brackets in a way that doesn't pit representatives from the same GCL against each other until the very end. Also, perhaps opening games consist of 2 players who qualified in first, and 2 players who qualified in second?

I'm flexible to other options, just thought I'd toss it out.

My last 6 finished games are 4 wins and two seconds. I'm unlikely to place in the Amoeba qualifier. I'd be happy for a losers' game ;-)

I agree with top 2 advancing, rather than a single winner advancing.

Same here. I forgot I had seen you in this thread, and had to google "bgg qwerty gcl" to see who I was playing with.
