I am open to another game if anyone is interested. Also I'd enjoy being part of the next season here.

Would anyone object to just starting the next season, even though we don't have all games from the current season finished?

Can I get status updates on the outstanding games? It seems like they're not all finished, but since it has been five months since the last season, the time for the next one is overdue.

I'm going to be starting the thread for the new season momentarily.

How good are the participants? I'm not sure there would be any point to me playing.

First of all, here's the current thread.

Second of all, all levels are welcome. You'll start out in the lowest group, and, well, maybe you'll never leave there, but it's still fun to play. (Too bad Drewby doesn't play anymore.)

Cynical Realist resigned to me. Almost a perpetual check at the end but I found a forced queen exchange, which he didn't take and instead the Q was pinned. GG
