I would like to construct a tournament spanning multiple game types. My current idea is to have a set list of one-on-one games that will be played in every match, and whichever player wins the majority moves on to the next round.
There are 15 different games on this site that can be played with 2 players. I could do all 15 with a first-to-8 wins rule, but I feel like that would be too lengthy. Plus, some of the games are kind of draw-ish. I'll list the 15 below, and I'd like to hear your thoughts on which ones to include and which ones to leave out.
- Connect 4
- Liars Dice
- Crazy Eights
- Texas Hold'em
- Chinese Checkers
- Dice Wars
Whatever the final list is, I'm thinking that players will go back and forth selecting game types from the list until one player wins the majority.
Leave a comment with your thoughts on this idea, whether you would like to participate or not, and what games you think I should include or exclude! (To kick things off, I think we should include Liars Dice, Texas Hold'em, Jotto, and Battlegrounds, and exclude Connect 4, Checkers, Crazy Eights, Ratscrew, Concentration, and Go, and I'm on the fence right now about Chess, Reversi, Sink!, Chinese Checkers, and Dice Wars.)
As for the other three przes mentioned, Sink! felt just luck-based enough to give me pause in selecting it, although in retrospect, I did include Jotto, which operates on a similar principle. I feel like the search space is different enough to still give me pause, but maybe it's just me. As for Chinese Checkers and Reversi, while I was on the fence about them, I was already leaning towards including them, though I was somewhat worried they would be too abstract. (Plus, Reversi can tie, though honestly, I don't see that happening.)
