I'm... not a 1d, but with the strength differences what they are, does it matter all that much?

I'd be down to play.

I'd be ok with it $_$

honestly I don't think topazg is 1d. Considering several Malkovich games he played (amongst others a win against Magicwand at even) I would say he is at least 2d, rather 3d!

Hmm, if you don't think topazg is 1d, I guess it would be okay. Just am a bit concerned that ~4d + 7k vs 1d + 8k would be a bit of a wash, but who knows, we might cause an upset. I'm fine with that then if topazg is :) . I suppose with the game likely to be lasting around a year our ranks will probably change quite a bit anyway, so...!

Best of luck :) .

I wouldn't worry about it, I'm after interesting Go, and I can achieve that whilst being outplayed anyway, so let's go :)

I am open for recruitment if any extras are needed anywhere... I'm not necessarily looking to start a game, I just want to let you guys know I am available if someone needs and extra somewhere...

Sure - go for it. I'd start it but admittedly I've got no experience with this. Might as well let someone who knows what they're doing start it :P .

Hmm... Possibly we could make it a 3 vs 3 then? Me, Aphelion and Topazg as one team, with Jordus, Mnemonic and Violence as the other team? The only issue I can see is that Jordus' and Mnemonic's ranks are a bit close... Well, up to you guys, I don't mind :) .

Sorry but I'm definitely not a 4k! I have occasionally beaten a 6k in even games but anything stronger and my play rapidly deteriorates :(

I really don't mind either way, although I'm sufficiently short on time these days that a BB format is much easier for me than a team discussion format (not knowing precisely what was in mind with 3v3).

Whatever works for everyone else :)

Hmm, I was thinking since Violence is higher, it might cancel out having the lower two players a bit lower. Maybe we should stick to the 2v2 then? If you guys want to do that, feel free to make the thread :) . I'm itching to go :lol: !

So right now we have

Aph, 4k
oso, 9k
Loons, 2kish

So another 8-10 kyu and a pair of dans would be great (in case you're hovering, reading this, thinking "well maybe", I`m directing this at you particularly). Also I'm sure myself or Aph would happily tag out to make a more balanced pair of 'mid' SDKs.

I thought I had volunteered (as had Simba, but he should probably confirm that). Because a format in which a stronger player gets to tell me directly which of my moves are rubbish (OK, more rubbish than the others), but I don't get to find out why, sounds like fun :lol: :scratch:

ah, oops. Simba of course is playing #4 with Mnemonic etc at the moment. I imagine the four of us would prefer to hold out in hopes of a pair of dans joining too?

I'd like to play a game of Big Brother Malkovich. Both with a stronger player or 2 weaker players is ok with me. :)

You know, there are two ongoing BBM games in which the biggest brother disappeared. I'm not sure if the other players are ready to replace Violence yet, and I'm not sure whether you're fairly matched with the other strong player in the game, but it's something to think about....
