    This is the thread to plan chess tournaments.


    Let's take a look at https://lichess.org/signup :


    Computers and computer-assisted players are not allowed to play. Please do not get assistance from chess engines, databases, or from other players while playing. Also note that making multiple accounts is strongly discouraged and excessive multi-accounting will lead to being banned.
    By registering, you agree to be bound by our Terms of Service.
    • I agree that I will at no time receive assistance during my games (from a chess computer, book, database or another person).
    • I agree that I will always be nice to other players.
    • I agree that I will not create multiple accounts.
    • I agree that I will follow all Lichess policies.


    Registering a username at lichess has different terms of service than RPG Codex.

    It will be impossible for all players to use the same username on both services (this forum and lichess).

    We'll assemble a list to match Codex posters and their Lichess usernames.

    I'm in, with a strong preference for blitz time controls (3+2, or 5+0)

    Could be fun, if done on a relatively fast game time. No hours long game for me....

    OT, but Retro Recipes is extremely disturbing to me. He doesn't look like shit. He's actually handsome in a non gay way. His wife is pretty hot. He has humor, is good at what he does, and is not an arrogant jerk.

    This is a youtube/retrogaming anomaly.

    You sign up. You create a group and then a private tournament and then you people in the group can join to it and set a start time or have start when a designated amount of people have signed up. You can play in groups where you play everyone in your group as both black and white and then have so many move to the next round until someone wins. They have a variety of options and time control. Also chess 960.

    You can also select daily tournaments if you want to play where you have to make one move a day or whatever. They also have a decent but not great phone app.

    No time or date has been set for the first tournament.

    With the nice weather for many of us we have been outside and away from our computers.

    Make a chess.com account and join this club. https://www.chess.com/club/codex-chess-club

    I can set up tournaments both live and daily and you can set up matches against each other once you are in. When you request access just send me your Codex username so I know you posted in this thread.

    Let's get it on! I was thinking a daily tournament of 24 hours a move to start and then as we get members we can set up blitz, rapid or whatever time control we want for Codex related chess tourneys where we play live.

    chess.com or lichess?

    The planning continues.

    Once things get running we can run more tournaments more frequently.

    HAHAHAHA

    Hey NEEERDS. How's your little NEEERD gathering going? What's this? A Chess club? Oh you want to play Chess? Hahahaha, would -love- to join such a stimulating time but according to my Dick Tracy watch I'm going to be late to my Magic the Gathering event. Yeah, got this sweet new deck I sold my mom's wedding ring to construct, heh. Sorry, would love to sit here with you NERDS and NERD it up but I gotta play a game with real skill. Hey, look at the bright side... at least you can say for once in your lives you actually TOOK A QUEEN! HAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Alexa, play Last Resort.

    speeds off with Papa Roach blaring

    Nope. The MtG reference didn't clue them in. You failed. Try again.
