The BCB Cup 2013 - please send initial lists by 20 January

Postby the masked man » 08 Jan 2013, 11:42

I think it's time to start this up again. I know it's likely to cause me headaches, but hey, someone's got to do it.

For those who've never played, this is how it works. All entrants send me a list of ten favourite songs via PM. I then pair you up with another contestant using the list randomizer function at http://www.random.org. Then I post all lists up while keeping the identity of the contestants a secret, and invite BCBers to vote for their favourite list. Once round one is completed, I ask each winning contestant to submit a further five songs which are appended to the end of their round one list, and the process starts over again. For round three, the successful competitors need to send me five more songs, and so on to the final.

All BCBers are eligible to enter, excluding aliases but including newbies who've had their first five posts approved by an administrator. Thesiger is the current champion - can he retain his title?

Anyway, this year, I think I'm going to limit it to the first 64 entrants. We usually struggle to make it to 128 players, and getting an odd number inbetween leads to a frankly awkward first round however we deal with this. If you want to play, please add your name below.

When is it likely to start Andrew? I'm on holiday from 30th Jan-7th Feb so that may be problematic?

I was hoping to start it by the end of the month. I can try to ensure that your matches are posted outside that period, if it helps.

Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.
