https://www.logic-puzzles.org lets you link a specific puzzle, and tracks time as well. I don't know if that infringes on puzzles at all, but I think it'd be a good one to have in the hopper.

I'm gonna propose matches of chess 960.

It's a variant of chess pioneered by Bobby Fischer and gaining popularity at the moment (a bunch of international super GM's just finished the world's first chess 960 tournament a couple months ago, max). It's standard chess with a fluid system for setting up the board. Theres 960 ways to set up the board before play and, consequently, opening theory is thrown out the window entirely. It's pure chess. Familiarity with historical games or common positions is unnecessary and unhelpful. Anyone can play.

Yes, I am mostly proposing this because I need people to play ludacris psuedo-chess against...

It's a variant of chess pioneered by Bobby Fischer who was inspired after he he read the posting of somethingawful.com forums poster "Birdstrike" and gaining popularity at the moment (a bunch of international super GM's just finished the world's first chess 960 tournament a couple months ago, max).

Someday, chess will be the biggest waste of time. Bigger than all the others.

Can you imagine a world where people called in sick to work so they could think about their bishop endgame? A world where we put off seeing our friends and loved ones to study the fine nuances of the Italian game? A world where we recklessly blow our entire savings accounts buying tickets to international chess tournaments only to return home to squalor and despair? A world where we call out in the night from fear and pain, lamenting the needless death of an erstwhile queen!

A world where we are alone. Totally alone. Longing in the void for any feeling creature with an equivalent ELO rating who can understand the pain we feel inside. The pain of being two points down in a closed pawn game. A full minute beneath your opponent. Your family's cold eyes locked on you in shame.

... Wow. I'm sorry. That got a little intense ...

I've been ripping my hair out over this for the last six months and it finally hit me that any arguing about it can happen in march rather than wasting game time for it --

this is an open call for flash games, silly challenge ideas, things like that, that'll work for duels. If you don't already know: duels circumvent the usual combat system for a 1 on 1 contest with another player, no stats involved. You set your own terms, and one of those terms is how you and your adversary will do glorious and honorable battle SO

hit the thead the gently caress up

To be accepted, it's gotta meet this criteria:

  • The results must be definitive, objective, and demonstrable via screenshot or video so that all players can observe the duel-in-fact.
  • The challenge cannot be any form of endurance challenge whatsoever, and the definition of what comprises an endurance challenge is entirely up to perameneís judgment. Stay very clear from this line.
  • It must only involve the participation of the duelists - no involvement of other people, even if theyíre outside the game and including peramene.
  • It cannot involve any expectation or requirement of financial expenditure. Games which are already purchased, such as both players owning a competitive Steam game that one or both of them can record, are absolutely okay.
  • It cannot involve any expectation of the divulgence of personal information, including video containing faces or voices.
  • It must reasonably take no more than two hours to complete.

On that last point, I would much rather see faster, more entertaining contests than long, drawn out nonsense. Drop some suggestions yo -- also feel free to comment on each other's suggestions. I was hoping to build a list of at least 20 but hopefully 50 so that I could justify rolling some dice and declaring that the contest; let's see how we do.

You have Tetris already, right?
