What is the "Chain Gang"? It's a Sumo-related game, based on a day by day entry. This means you have to follow the ongoing tournament.You have to register for each Basho,even if you are a returning player, in order to pick your default, as you will see if you continue reading...
The good news is that all you have to do is guess one (1) winner of your choice from all the bouts on a given day, Juryo and Makuuchi. Only one, any one. You got it right? You advance to day 2 and pick again. It could be the same rikishi, or anyone else. You got it wrong? Well, that was the shortest game you ever played, because yer OUT!! No three strikes, no yellow card, no "one more chance".. It's the end of the road.
Last human being standing wins. This means the game could theoretically end on day 6. So what..
You will need to pick two default guys before the basho starts for the days you don't play, who cannot be changed. The default player will be ranked between Sekiwake and Juryo 14. There is a 5-time use limit per basho for using a default, and you can use him for three straight days only, though we don't think you'll get very far using a default in this particular game. The reason for two defaults is this:
KYUJO - When your default pick goes Kyujo, your second default pick kicks in.. IMPORTANT!! You cannot win OR lose by fusen. If your picked rikishi is involved in a fusen match, the default kicks in automatically.This is so no player will have any advantage due to time zone differences, as we had happen in the past. In the highly unlikely event that your default is also involved in the fusen match, you're toast..The best thing to do is keep an eye out for possible kyujos, and stay away from that rikishi!! Defaults do not include any Ozeki or Yokozuna.
The tie-breaker- the player who used the lowest ranked rikishi on average wins.
Please register!!!. If you don't, you won't be able to pick your defaults.
There will be no mail sent out during the Basho-
you'll have to visit us to see who's still standing
Good luck!!
