Participating in a Tournament

Jens wrote a nice long bit about how to participate in a tournament in the following Forum Topic (

As far as I can tell, there are four steps to participating in a tournament.

Step 1: Apply to the Tournament - After finding a tournament you'd like to be a part of, use the "Send Application" button - you'll have an opportunity to write a short message to the tournament organizer. 

Step 2: Schedule your Matches - by clicking on the cells corresponding to your games, you'll be able to propose game times and write messages you opponent can see. After a time has been proposed, it can be locked in by your opponent.

Step 3: Play your Match - according to Jens' post (if I understand correctly), there's no special way to have your tournament game, other than being online at the same time as your opponent and challenging them.

Step 4: Record the results of your match - I understand that in tournaments here, the winner gets 3 points and the loser gets 1 point, but I don't understand how this is recorded - does it happen automatically with your game history? Or will one of the players need to go to the tournament page to update it?

Any additional insight would be delightful, thank you.

To any readers in the future looking for the answer to this, here it is.

How to create a special game room for the tournament:

- The game app that can be used for playing in the tournament is only the web-browser version. You cannot play on iOS and Android apps.

- During the tournament period, participants will be having a special option in the "Create new game" window in the Dojo app to create a "Tournament Room" for your tournament. Select this option and wait for the opponent.
Only the participants of this tournament can challenge the player waiting in the corresponding Tournament Room.

- All games must be played in this special Tournament Room so as to be automatically counted in the match table.

- The app allows the same players to play a second game in the tournament. However, only the result of the first game is taken. It is recommended that you check your game history carefully before starting a game with someone in the league, so as not to play any second game with the same opponent by mistake.

This is 81Dojo's web system for account and data management. The entrance to the shogi app can be found in the main site at
