At the top of BGG if I go to the 'Misc' tab and then the 'Tigris' tabe it looks like there are games going on? Could someone please explain this to me? Why just Tigris? Are there other games that can be played on BGG? Is this a tourney?
I appreciate any details you can offer.

Thank,
Dale

Gosh, I've never seen that!

I believe this is on-line version of Tigris & Euphrates which you would play if you had no opponents by the hand. Never heard of any kind of on-going tournament of T&E here on 'geek but as I am pretty new user take my opinion with a grain of salt.

There are places on the web where you could play on-line version of different games. You may want to try out MabiWeb, Michael Schacht's webiste, Brass On-line just to name few.

I've never played it. If someone more knowledgeable doesn't come and explain it here, you might try asking in GeekChat (in the same menu).

A T&E League exists and runs tournaments:

It's a turn-based online version of T&E found right here at BGG. I've never tried it either, but it's been around for many years. I don't know how often other users make use of it, nor do I know who programmed it. One of the admins may chime in with more info. (Really should have a wiki page with this info, shouldn't we?)
