New idea: Creating a space for historic annotated games

Postby kunjoos » Tue Jan 25, 2011 3:23 pm

Games that qualify as historic are up to Seth. Games that should be included:

Landsberg's 770 game
Ed's 771 game
Cresta vs. Yorra
Tournament clinching final games (Edley vs. Wiegand in Providence, Wiegand vs. Nigel in Orlando, Sherman vs. Nigel in San Diego, etc.)
The WATERZOOI game

More optional games:

Edley vs. Cappelletto: the TRAILSIDE game
Kramer vs. Thevenot: the ZOOEA# game
Me vs. Lerman: the 11 bingo game
Nigel vs. Joey: the DECAGONAL game
Any famous 12s or longer you can dig up (HEADQUARTERING, e.g.)
Other finals games
Historic low scoring games (can't recall any off the top of my head, but some 1900+ player must've failed to break 250 at one point)

I think having these all in one spot in a separate section would be of great help to Scrabble, both in terms of a "Hall of Fame" and to attract new players to tournament Scrabble.

Also, maybe somewhere you can list a note next to the game about why it was historic.
