    Hi guys, I was thinking about hosting an 8-16 player tennis gaming tournament that would be open to all of the forum members. If you're interested just sign up and hopefully we'll get enough people.:)

    The rules are very simple, the tournament will last for around 9-14 days, with 3 to 4 rounds, which will last for 3 days each. During that time you can play the game as much as you want but you must post your score (which I'll explain how to do) by the end of the third day. The players with the highest scores will move into the next round and the players with the lower scores will be eliminated.

    I thought this might be kind of fun I haven't done one of these on TWF yet so if you want to play, let me know.

    The first round of the tournament will begin on Sunday, December 12th, at 12:00 AM GMT and will end on Tuesday, December 14th at 11:59 PM GMT. During this time you can submit as many scores as you want.

    The following rounds will be from:

    December 16th-18th Quarters

    December 20th-22nd Semis

    December 27th-29th Finals

    There are going to be 3 or 4 different flash games. They'll be off websites like MiniClip, Flasharcade, and gamedesign. Want to sign up?

    Yes, just as long as you're able to save the screen shot of your score.

    If we're doing head to head in yahoo, whomever I play is going have to save the screenshots, I either don't have it on my laptop, or I can't find it...

    For those of you who don't know how to post a screen shot, I've included a quick explanation below.

    You can take take a screen shot by pressing the Printscreen key on your keyboard followed by the insert key, then open up paint and press contol + V or Paste, save it, then finally you can upload the picture through Tinypic.com, once it's uploaded you want to copy the direct link and paste it into the Insert image icon box.

    The first game of the tournament will be "Tennis Game" from the website Gamedesign. At the end of the game it doesn't allow you to submit a score so instead you can just write your name across the bottom of it, so that it looks just like this:

    No Kishnabe, you can't submit scores until the round has started. This tournament won't begin until Sunday, so I can't count that score.

    If anyone else still wants to sign up I have room.

    LOL I didn't see that. Yeah, word to the wise, check your pics. Don't worry, Kishnabe, we have all done it. And to think I was surprised that someone would know what other forums (even though benign) I visit. I was waiting for someone to have multiple screens of TW open.

    No, you will need to replay the game and submit the scores within the 3 day time period of each round.

    Kobble, you're not currently signed up to play. Do you want me to add you?

    Yes, that is exactly right. I don't know about yahoo but it doesn't really matter as long as you're able to post the post a screen shot of your score.

    Problem is, the max score is winning the championship.

    You should add King Ping Pong to the list. Trust me, that game is tennis worthy.

    The first 8 people to beat the game and post the completed game screen shot will move on to the quarter-finals. The others will be eliminated.

    You should also try StickSports: and go to the section tennis. They have all the Grand slams Tournaments(federer and etc) and they also have world domination where you can play against legends(Borg,Willander,McEnroe, Pete Sampras,Agassi and etc).

    But most people, like me, have beaten it already, and could just post a screen in 5 minutes.

    I'm not sure if most people have played the game yet but I still think it's a good idea to keep things the way they are. I'd like to see how many people will submit scores in the first round.

    I didn't push Printscreen fast enough, so I received the ending credits. You can't get them by winning in exhibition, or losing in tournament.

    3-1 vs. DateKimi
    3-1 vs. Seles
    3-0 vs. Navra
    3-1 vs. Hingis

    The 1st time I beat it, I only dropped a game. My timing is off sometimes.
