Sign-ups are now closed! I will setup the Challonge group and post again in a few minutes with our rules and a Challonge link.

Challonge Link: http://challonge.com/7f9euvhm

Rules:

We will play a round robin (10 games total per player) in the first round. The top 4 players will advance to a best 2 of 3 elimination bracket. There is no 3rd place game.

Round robin standings will be determined as follows:
1. Wins
2. Wins versus tied opponents
3. Point differential

The winner should post the result, including the scores for each player. Feel free to update directly in Challonge yourself or post here and I'll update over there.

To start (and keep the number of concurrent games manageable), please only send invites for your first 3 games. You can see Round1, Round2, and Round 3 on the Bracket page of Challonge. Either player can send an invite. I believe you can only have 1 game going versus a person at a time anyways in the app.

Try to make a play a day to keep things moving. If I missed anything, let me know. Thanks for playing. Have fun and good luck!

Glad to get this started!

A reminder for those who haven't played this game in a while: notifications in Lost Cities are inconsistent at best, so we should all check the game regularly. The game will sometimes tell me I've got a turn pending when I don't, and when that notification clears, that means it's actually my turn.

I've sent out GC invites to my first three opponents.

You have to be GC-friends to invite to a game, right?

Yes, you have to be GC friends to play each other

I don't know about you guys, but I have to reboot my phone a couple of times a day to unstick game center. Before the extra Lost Cities games I would have to do so only once or twice a week.

More evidence towards my suspicion that Lost Cities is one of the apps that invokes the GC white screen of death.

I've had to remove Lost Cities from my phone (only play on the iPad) because it will interrupt the connection with Game Center. Why is it ok on the iPad but not iPhone? Who knows ....

iOS 9.3.2 is out.
http://toucharcade.com/2016/05/16/ios-9 ... available/

beta testers had reported that this update might fix GC.
mixed comments. some say it has fixed GC for them, others say no.
but i guess it's worth trying.

I have one game going, but the other two GC invites didn't get responded to.
