I dont care who is 2nd, but agree with the bold. I think game 5 provides a good example. Objectively, blue had an easier board, but red won twice. I think we would need at least 5 mirror games go 4-1 and then give the 1 an extra point. With 3 games I am not sure we can conclude anything from all these 2-1 rounds, but I doubt that board difficulty was the deciding factor.

If this post is odd, more wins gets it.
If this post is even, H2H winner gets it.

Agreed. Even though it goes against me (and IBD), I think H2H decides it.

(You can change the scoring in the future, but you can't fault it after the fact.)

Most wins should be tiebreaker

Re: Codenames ongoing / slow game sign up

i don't really care which way it breaks

i think dalmatians v. fantasia would make for a more fun match bc fantasia beat them before and both teams have 4 wins. meanwhile we lost to bambi before, so that'd also be a feel-nice pair

Re: Codenames ongoing / slow game sign up

3v3v3 with two assassins is the obvious solution.

Re: Codenames ongoing / slow game sign up

I think if we are being objective here, and considering only 5 games were played, that wins should trump H2H. The 4/5 team (Fantasia) should place higher than the 3/5 team (Cinderella).

If we want to talk H2H resume (that Cinderella beat Fantasia H2H) then Fantasia has a counter to that in that they handed Dalmations their only loss, and Dalmations is the #1 seed..

I mean a 1-loss Fantasia beats the number one team in the nation, and is out of the National Championship game... to a 2 -loss team.....outrage...outrage.....lol

Just my opinion though..

Re: Codenames ongoing / slow game sign up

Under the old scoring system I think it would have been...

Dalmations - 14
Cinderella - 13
Fantasia - 12

But yeah, idc. Whatever arbitrary system we use, it doesn't much matter to me.

Oh god... yeah.....forgot how bad that was..... a team could go 2/5 and snag the 1 or 2 spot under the 5/3/2 system. Glad we went to 3/2. Probably should just go 2 points for all wins next time.

Re: Codenames ongoing / slow game sign up

First person to make 3 threads that pit 1v2 and 3v4 and 5v6 in whatever way they desire (as long as 1, 4, 5, and 6 are correct) wins this debate. Better get moving if you an opinion!

Re: Codenames ongoing / slow game sign up

Why arenít we just doing 1v6, 2v5 and 3v4 like a playoff system?

We played the first 5 games to determine the top 2. Now they are supposed to battle it out. It's just a question of who is 2 and who is 3.

IRTM, with due respect, asking someone to come forward and make a decision (by making threads) seems a bit awkward for everyone.

Fantasia and Cinderella are tied. There was no tiebreaker rule declared. So have them play a one game playoff game and the winner is 2nd place. Nobody is going to object to them playing an extra game, and I bet both teams will find this decision fair.

Nothing to do with codenames is clear.

Why not have every player vote on how to handle it? Choose between Cinderella, Fantasia, or extra game. If there is no winner of that, then an independent party can rand the top vote getters.

Re: Codenames ongoing / slow game sign up

I vote we stop talking about it and just play some Codenames. Itís a total turnoff. My cock ring is sliding off.
