Site Issues

News Article

Ok this time it was ALL my fault!

I tried to update some features of the site and made a BIG mess of the site. Hopefully everything is back in order now.


Archive Up

Access to the old site is now available. To get to the archive select the Archive option located in the upper right corner.


Site Moved Early



For those that are just coming back to the site, you can tell that things have drastically changed. This was a result of the old site being hacked (multiple times in just a few hour span).

As a result I had to move to the new system (that was being created behind the scenes). It still have flaws and content is still being migrated. The biggest issue,YOU MUST CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT, sorry... but this is just how is has to be for us to move forward at this time.

Nothing else must be necessary to play: only sheets of paper and a pen to record scores.
