For Championship, N = 29

October 4, 2008

In the upcoming championship, normal and misere serves of up to 29 spots will be allowed. Roman Khorkov, long our leading player and theorist, believes that this parameter will be sufficient for competitive misere play. Since misere play seems to encompass all of the logic of normal play and more, and since there is strong motivation to keep this tournament within reasonable temporal bounds, the decision has been made not to accommodate the simpler normal play mode with a higher n parameter.

Entries must be in by October 10. Anyone - human, computer, or cyborg - may enter by notifying Participation is free of charge. Similarly, prizes are solely in the coin of honorifics.
