2 years ago I was going to create a fake Bots tournament as an April Fools joke but decided against it as Cristina held a real Scopa tournament that weekend. It would not have been fair to put up my joke tournament when a real one was going on so I decided to leave it. I still kept the old text so have decided to let people enjoy the joke now. Don't forget we did not have as many Duck bots as we do now. Unusually Easter fell on the same day as April fools hence this joke competition.
THE BOTS EASTER SCOPA TOURNAMENT
On Saturday 15 April Snowflake and I will be hosting a Scopa Easter tournament just for bots in the playroom and you are invited to select a bot that will represent you in this very special tournament. We have noted the issues that people have had recently regarding punctuality so we believe we have found an ideal solution that will sort out this issue. We also are aware that many of you really enjoy chocolate so may not have enough time to play during the Easter weekend.
Some ask what comes first the Chicken Or the egg. We believe our tournament will solve this issue in it's own unique way. We have chosen 2 teams that will contain 14 players each. We chose 14 because there are 14 duck bots and as ducks produce eggs they will be representing the egg team. 14 of the other bots will represent the Chicken team. Once 28 of you have chosen your bot then we will make the draw. One of the Ducks will be drawn against one of the Chicken team. That will produce 7 Winners. We want an Eighth player for the quarter-final so I think one of the loosing bots Perhaps the looser Lol may get another chance. The first round will be set to 6 points with the Quarter and Semi each 12 points and 18 points for the final. Apparently it is something to do with the size of egg boxes according to some of the ducks.
Please note that it is possible that there may not be a semi or even a final as there has to be one egg or chicken for any of the finals to go ahead. Hopefully all the eggs won't have cracked by then or all the chickens will have run away.
All we are asking people to do is choose a bot and that bot will represent them at the tournament. We will work on a first come first served basis so if your first choice bot is taken then you will have to choose another bot on the list. Please note that you don't have to be able to attend the tournament for your bot to play but we feel sure that your bot would appreciate you cheering them on on the day.
