From 8pm-10:30pm, beginning at 8, 8:45, and 9:30. You play one game a week - game start times move around. However, if you could only make 1 time slot, I can work around that.

This round will probably have slightly easier packets than Rd 4. Though it will vary week to week. Prison Bowl is a good approximation. Next year, we'll have OSPL Novice and OSPL Expert.

Yes, this is open to OSPL Rd 4 players with the caveat that if your team wins this go-round, you're out until OSPL 7 - Champions League.

Ben, sorry, Jonathan emailed me at 11pm last night to claim the last spot. Josh and Grace, you have until Feb. 7 to confirm. Also, anyone on the list who is playing OSPL 4 and makes Champions League, you're thereby ineligible (that could be you, Ben). I'll take one or two more wait list slots if people are interested.

I am sorry for the somewhat late notice, but just this last week I have started a new commitment that will prevent me from being able to participate in this on Tuesday nights, so I will have to withdraw from this round of OSPL.

(believe me, I would have loved to play, but sometimes weekly AP Latin sessions that end at 8:30 pm happen...)

Greg, do you still have the stats for week 1? If you could, can you scan them and send them to Ben, or otherwise send them to him in the mail if need be (assuming, Ben, you're interested in doing stats again, which would be severely awesome of you, but you are by no means under any obligation whatsoever to do so).

I don't think it's a matter of commitment but when matches run far behind it creates confusion and keeps people up later than they want to. For instance the 9:30 game this week didn't start until 10pm, which by that time most people (such as other occupants in the house) want to sleep but have to deal with OSPL going on in the other room or what have you.

I can do stats for this again. Also, were there any stats for OSPL 4 that I don't have? It would be great to have complete statistics so that it can more helpful for those in the game (or those who were players).

Standings now updated. Also note slightly later slot 2 and 3 start times going forward, which should make it easier to run on time.

Hi Everyone,
OSPL is postponed tonight due to a family emergency. We'll probably just push OSPL Rd5 and the start of OSPL Rd6 back a week, unless there's strong objection. Sorry about the inconvenience.

A reminder that OSPL is on for tonight. Apologies, again, for last week's postponement.
