AS THE GAME ROOMS ARE LIMITED FOR SPACE. AT TIMES THE TWO ABOVE OPTIONS DONT ALWAYS WORK.

TO MAKE A SHORTCUT TO THE GAME ROOMS, YOU NEED TO GO INTO THE GAME ROOM BEFORE THE TOURNEY'S AND CREATE IT. RIGHT CLICK ON THE GAME SCREEN BY THE OUTSIDE EDGE (YELLOW BORDER), SELECT MAKE SHORTCUT, WHEN THE BOX COMES UP ASKING IF YOU WANT TO CREATE A SHORTCUT TO YOUR DESKTOP, CLICK ON YES.

WINERY FORMAL CHALLENGES

 

Formal challenges are fun to make and fun to play.  We want everyone here to have fun and not get upset by something that is MEANT to be fun.  If formal challenges are made and not completed in 3 days the person who makes the challenge will be issued a loss.  The overall suggestion is that if you are not going to be available, do not make challenges.

Formal Challenge Rules
    There are some special rules surrounding formal challenges. It is pretty straight-forward and the rules may differ from ladder to ladder based on the number of participants on that ladder.

    • You have to be within a rank range to utilize the formal challenge system (Generally 50 or better on larger ladders, 20 or better on smaller ones).
    • You may have only one formal challenge involving you at any time:
      • You may issue one formal challenge at a time, or
      • One formal challenge may be issued against you at any time.

    • You are restricted from challenging the same user twice in a row for a period of time (This prevents friends from locking up their challenge slots).
    • You have a pre-determined number of days during which to play challenges (This varies depending on the ladder size and activity level).
    • Failure to complete a formal challenge will result in BOTH players receiving a failure in their records. Accumulation of three failures will result in penalties (This discourages BOTH users from avoiding a challenge). A permanent note is also made on the user records.
    • Formal challenges are recorded automatically when you report ladder results. There is no special reporting procedure. They will show up in the daily results as a formal challenge.
    • A challenge is cleared immediately following a match report. This means that as soon as you play a challenge another challenge can be filed against you.
    • Players in the top ten are eligible to challenge any member of the top ten ranked better than they are. Players outside of the top ten are limited to challenging half the distance of their rank. For example, if you are ranked 20 you could challenge anyone ranked 10-19. If you are ranked 50, however, you can only challenge those ranked 25-49.
    • You cannot challenge someone ranked under you.
Challenges
    To make a challenge complete the form on the FORMAL CHALLENGE link. This will record your formal challenge or inform you why you cannot make the challenge.

POKER THEME: In addition to standard cases rules. A player final score is taken like a hand of 3 card stud poker. 0 = ten. 1 - 0(10) lowest to highest. Then pairs, 3 of a kind & Straight is the highest hand possible. Score does not have to be in order, (a score or 123, 132, 213, 231 all equal a straight)Post your score when finished bowling.

REVERSE SCORE THEME Like all regular theme games you bowl to knock down as many pins as you can in EVERY frame. The only difference is you post your final score in reverse. Example: 123/321

TURKEY SHOOT: A player will auto win the round if they are the first in pair to bowl a turkey. If neither bowl the turkey then it returns to normal scoring of the highest score wins the match.LET'S HAVE FUN AND GET THEM GOBBLERS

In Regards to other leagues:
 
We all realize that there are other leagues in Cases Ladder.  We all work to provide the best possible gaming experience for our players.  In TheWinery we ask that our players not advertise for other leagues here OR advertise for our league when in another.  It is just bad form and we discourage all from doing so unless specifically asked for some information by a td or Admin.  Thank you all very much!!!
