Summer League Starts Thursday June 29 5:30 p.m. Pacific / 8:30 p.m. Eastern

My fellow aliens:

I’ll be running a summer “mini-league” (I’m sure we can think of a better name, too) for four weeks, so dust off your best moves and get ready to go against other members in our classic solo-wins-only format.

Here’s all the important details:

Days: Thursdays and Saturdays (yes, we want to see how a weekday fares rather than just do Friday / Saturday again). One night, though, will be on Friday, due to unforseen circumstances.

Dates: The tournament begins Thursday, June 29 and ends Saturday, July 22. That’s four weeks of twice-a-week games.

Week 1: Thursday, June 29 and Saturday, July 1

Week 2: Friday, July 7 and Saturday, July 8

Week 3: Thursday, June 13 and Saturday, July 15

Week 4: Thursday, June 20 and Saturday, July 22

Finals: Either Thursday, July 27 or Saturday, July 29 — whichever the four finalists can reach a consensus on.

Time: 5:30 p.m. Pacific / 8:30 p.m. Eastern — play will last for a maximum of three hours per night.

Host: TheDukester. I will not be playing, unless it is to fill in spots.

Format: Each game will, if at all possible, feature four players. And, of course, solo wins only.

Maximum games: Six per week. Play all six on one day, split them up, or whatever. You just can’t play more than six.

Finals: Thursday, July 27 or Saturday, July 29, whichever the finalists can agree on (the default will be Saturday if no consensus can be reached). The top two players in overall wins and the top two players in winning percentage are guaranteed spots in the finals. Alternates will be called upon for any player who cannot attend. To qualify in the percentage rankings, a minimum of 10 games must have been played.

Important: I am only going to play “cat-herder” to a limited extent — I am going to insist that players wait for room assignments rather than just do their own thing. Mixing up the players will also ensure that the same group of four isn’t playing each other every single time.
