2020 team event call for players

Post by ahuyton » Sun Feb 16, 2020 7:21 pm

I would like to launch our third SJ team event in the next few weeks. Our discussions after last year's event led to the following idea, but I am happy to adapt it if people object or have better ideas.

Please PM me or reply to this post to confirm that you would like to play. Comments on the scenario very welcome.

Alan

---
2020 team event

As usual, two teams and three rounds.

Team captains will be Snugglebunnies and Fikabo, if they agree to play again.

In each round, each player will play 3-4 games, depending on the size of the teams.

Round One

Samurai battles between Tokugawa faction and Hojo faction

The winning team will become Shogun

Round Two

The Shogunate team invades Korea
The losing team from Round one will play Joseon
The winning team of this round decides to expand their empire...

Round Three

The winner of Round Two (Joseon or Jap) invades the Ming
The losing team will play, naturally, oneof the Ming armies.

After a lean Winter season, this lowly Ashigaru will be scouring the rust from his jingasa, shaking the cockroaches from his rain cape, and sharpening his yari, in the hope of being able to campaign under Tokugawa Snugglebunnies or Hojo Fikabo.

Players so far (in no particular order):

Snugglebunnies (aka Jack, I think)
Kiwiwarlord (Brian)
GentlemanRanker (Nick)
Gdod (Gavin)
TheGrayMouser (??? shame on me for not knowing)
Eobrian2 (Erin)
ahuyton (Alan)
LFDLM (Cedric) tbc

No word from Fikabo so I assume he is out. As soon as LFDLM confirms we can get going.

Potential teams, please feel free to protest, swap, exchange

Team Usagi (see note below from Gdod)
Snugglebunnies - Daimyo
ahuyton
TheGrayMouser
Eobrian2

Team Kiwi (Gavin, suggestion please)
Kiwiwarlord - Daimyo
GentlemanRanker
Gdod
LFDLM

Snugglebunnies might be interested to know that Usagi (Rabbit) ... the rabbit is a symbol of cleverness and self-devotion, and appears in myths. In old days, it was a symbol of Spring.

Tori is the Japanese name for a bird, or Tobenaitori for flightless bird. I would recommend the shorter Tori

Could be a new Kiwi derivation of Tora! Tora! Tora!...............TORI! TORI! TORI! Squawk!

Speaking of snifters warlord! I see the Aussies have taken our classic kiwi snifters and turned them into a new flavour of our ole pineapple lumps. What next... Jaffa lumps! (Only sold in Auckland!)

Team Tori it is then! Thanks Gavin

Thanks also to Baldrick52. I think the simplest is to add you to one of the teams. The imbalance innumbers does not really matter.

We'll take Baldrick...we're fond of imbalanced generals
One Navy admiral dressed up in a ninja suit to ensure his classified areas were defended.
Lt. Gen. George Custer was obsessed with his huge pack of dogs.
Gen. Curtis LeMay really wanted to bomb the Russians.
LeMay’s successor really, really wanted to bomb the Russians.
Gen. “Mad” Anthony Wayne made his soldiers fight without ammunition.

On the various questions:

- Baldrick will join Gdod then
- Happily, Cedric will join us, yes
- Welcome to Fabien who will join the other team

I am just waiting for Nick to get his computer up and running, hopefully this week and we can start. In the meantime, I will post a separate note about the games, rules etc so we can debate those.
