sounds somewhat interesting but is it plausable? seems hard enough sometimes to get 2 people on here at the same time let alone a significant number (ie. 16) people to all take time away from work/significant others to go play pente...and even those of us w/o a ball and chain around our ankles (imitates whip cracking sounds in background) still have many financial obligations...for those newbies among us here what would something like this entail? ie. possible length, location(s), total cost, extravagent prizes (lol) ?

Well we have had several live tournies in the past and I have to admit it is not for everyone but it is a darn good time!

I could do it but not if it is friday, saturday or sunday. I think like a tuesday evening one would work cause most people do nothing except maybe watch tv on that night.

ok, now i'm slightly confused here...which happens often...when u say "live" do u mean like live in person like i read somethin bout jumpin721 i believe hosted a tourny down in texas er sumthin, which albeit would be cool but would definitely be quite the undertaking...or do u just mean live like everyone on the site at the same time to play a whole tourny at once, like speed tournys but not speed pente?

I am talking about a Live Over The Board In Person tourney! Check out the www.playpente.com website and you will seen that it has been done successfully several times over the past few years! LOL

Homebrew held one last December at his home, One was held August of last year in Vegas...There have been several held in Texas over the past two years...

There has been lots of talk on and off about a tournament on the east coast, since that hasn't really been done yet besides small local get-togethers.

I know there is interest in that from several intermediate and advanced level players -- all that's left is for someone to be motivated enough to organize it!

Thanks partica for setting Marshall straight on where our tourney was held. It's true, jumpin721 kicked our asses but it was at my house not his

lol, sorry bout that homebrew, didnt mean to take away from the all the work u did hosting your tourney...i did some research in the forums and read a little about the tourney u hosted and the ones jumpin held down in texas, mighta got em a little mixed together...sounded like some good times...vegas sounded fun as well but having someone host a tourney def. seems the cheaper way to go...if one were put together in the near future i for one would show genuine interest, based of course on when and where it was held, and perhaps could get my bro to go too if its not terribly far away...might i suggest the last week of june? (i'm on vacation that week )

THere was a live tournaent planned on the east coast a year ago or so, but I had to discontinue my involvement in the planning because of surgery. As it was, there was little to no interest. Perhaps someone can start a list of interest for an east coast tournament? IF we see al ist of 20-30 people, then I'll put some effort in. But as it stands, peopel don't seem to put much effort into organizing or participating in a live tournament.

Well of course I would attend an east coast tournament!! I agree though, we need 20-30 players who agree to put an effort into attending before we spend much time planning it.

Pente Rocks!

I'm definitely interested in a live east coast tournament. I believe I could talk my bro into coming too...
