How about it then? Out back of the Old Bar before the summer disappears?


tinyman  said about 2 years ago:

Need an easier game. Poker? Counter strike?


mrsjackwhite  said about 2 years ago:

Snap?


astrousersasmind  said about 2 years ago:

M+N Scrabble Tournaments happened annually until last year, it's time to bring it back. If there is anything a chat prides themselves on it's pointless knowledge and meaningless oneupmanship and hanging out in bars. This gives us the perfect opportunity to do all three.


woolfat  said about 2 years ago:

I'd really be in if I weren't such a poor loser.


tinyman  said about 2 years ago:

UNO? Every household makes up their own rules though. I wish I remembered that one time when we perfected it, was the most awesome epic games.


Sunnyboyz  said about 2 years ago:

I am definitely in. 100%. Triple letter score, q and z.


Goal attack  said about 2 years ago:

As a previous winner let me just say I can't be fucked


tinyman  said about 2 years ago:

Aw, that's horrible.


woolfat  said about 2 years ago:

i'm too scared of the realisation that i'm actually terrible at a game i've always prided myself as being good at. eurgh. i can adjudicate...


astrousersasmind  said about 2 years ago:

Chicken, Goalie?


tinyman  said about 2 years ago:

But your scrabble skill can be quantified as a number, your average score.

Mine's about 90.


astrousersasmind  said about 2 years ago:

Is that per game or per word Tiny?


tinyman  said about 2 years ago:

Ha!


tinyman  said about 2 years ago:

Indicative of my typical scrabble playing. ''is 'ha' a word? To ha? 3 points? Score!''


Goal attack  said about 2 years ago:

Chicken, Goalie?

I got quite good for one year, the year I won. A friend helped train me up and then I forgot everything and I'm less than middling. Plus I hate the fact that it's all about memorising obscure 2 letter words these days.


Sunnyboyz  said about 2 years ago:

Isn't Ha worth 5 points?


tinyman  said about 2 years ago:

I've failed in the letters AND numbers components of this game.


Sunnyboyz  said about 2 years ago:

But isn't a scrabble comp more about chat connection/boozing/giggling at funny words like nipple, than winning at a board game?


tinyman  said about 2 years ago:

Hehe. Nipple!

Actually I don't believe we've had one since 2009.


astrousersasmind  said about 2 years ago:

This is the Melbourne registration thread, there's a Sydney one too.

Last year was a Words With Friends tournament I believe.


astrousersasmind  said about 2 years ago:

either way, it's been too long. And I don't know about other people but I like meeting chats and putting usernames to userfaces.


Tramdriver  said about 2 years ago:

Yeah me too. I'm totally in. :-)


happycow  said about 2 years ago:

I'm in.


woolfat  said about 2 years ago:

I'm thinking about it. I'll need to train up. Haha.


LoadMyRig  said about 2 years ago:

last tourny was 2010. I moved to bris that year so it stopped happening. plus we don't have nony in sydders any more to wrangle the syd comp. takes some organizing if any if you can be fucked.


Tramdriver  said about 2 years ago:

There was no Melbourne tournament in 2010- it didn't seem to quite take off (read: No-one could be fucked organising).


tinyman  said about 2 years ago:

well if nony's in melbourne, then we just need loady to visit sydney!


TheBastard  said about 2 years ago:

Do this before July and I might swing by (I'm not good at words, but I make a good cheer squad...)


JRB  said about 2 years ago:

M+N Diplomacy tournaments would be the go. We can make backstabby deals via PM and then end up hating each other.

Oh man! That would be nuts. Imagine BA and Modi playing Diplomacy! That would be absolute gold.


Tramdriver  said about 2 years ago:

Nah BA would be more:

tinyman  said about 2 years ago:

Is that a dragon?


Tramdriver  said about 2 years ago:

Anywayz........ how many do we need for a tournament?


happycow  said about 2 years ago:

Settlers is fantastic. Down for a Settlers tournament too.


happycow  said about 2 years ago:

Is that a dragon?

Bravo. Ten points.

Disrespect the law and you disrespect me.

tinyman  said about 2 years ago:

Board game night!!!! :-D


JRB  said about 2 years ago:

Ditto!

Board game night!!!! :-D


hillsonghoods  said about 2 years ago:

May I say that, as winner of 3 of the 5 M&N Scrabble Tournaments, that a) I'm living in the wrong state this year and so not competing if this gets off the ground - which statistically raises your chances of winning by a significant amount! and b) nony and loadie's wrangling efforts in the past were awesome and very necessary and kudos to them.


CaptainHowdy  said about 2 years ago:

i'm totally down for M+N AD&D.


Tramdriver  said about 2 years ago:

HSH - Had no idea you'd won 3 times.


happycow  said about 2 years ago:

I did Star Wars Trivial Pursuit at Old Bar once. It was heaps of fun, things got a bit heated towards the end. It almost came to blows.


Tramdriver  said about 2 years ago:

Star Wars triv ey? I'd rather hang my self..........


hillsonghoods  said about 2 years ago:

HSH - Had no idea you'd won 3 times.

I think I still have the tiara to prove it. I also got to the final of the M&N Words With Friends tournament!


ghoti-max  said about 2 years ago:

What are the odds of this happening on Friday March 9? I'll be in Melbourne with fuck all to do before Golden Plains. Start in the arvo?


ghoti-max  said about 2 years ago:

(* late arvo for the workers and drones)


Tramdriver  said about 2 years ago:

Hey, I'd be up for that ghoti! I think I might be going camping that weekend- hopefully not til later than that though.


ghoti-max  said about 2 years ago:

Anyone?


ghoti-max  said about 2 years ago:

I mean anyone else that's not Trammy - words with chats and shit


Tramdriver  said about 2 years ago:

I don't actually have a board although there are pubs where you can borrow them.
