http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=111222428967025

Saturday 25th June, 12:30pm from the Hyde Park Pub.

And so the time has come for a final Otley Run. This time it will be a joint event between the Japanese Society and the Leeds U Rock Paper Scissors Society. In each pub along the way there will be a Rock Paper Scissors tournament, with a medal awarded to each winner. At the end, the overall winner (from points awarded depending on each tournaments placings) will be awarded a trophy.

Owing to the timing… of events, and to ensure that people can comfortably relax, this is a half-Otley run. The tournaments will be held under an instant knock-out structure, but people will be able to enter the next tournament in the next pub.

Please remember that you do not need to drink alcohol in every pub, and you are encouraged to drink responsibly. Also please be aware that FAB Cafe has a no sportswear policy, so please no tracksuit bottoms (trainers are ok).

— Schedule —
Please note that you will need to register for each tournament before its start time, as they need to begin on time.

The End of LURPS – Tournament 8 Results

June 10, 2011

As so we now draw a close on the 2010/2011 season, and in turn a close on the Leeds U Rock Paper Scissors Society. We were able to go out on a bang, with a record attendence as well as a few shocks.

Regular Tournament

1st Prize: A T-Shirt saying “I won the last ever L.U.R.P.S”, a royal wedding calendar, a badgemaker, a back massager, the book “Budo, The Martial Ways of Japan”, 1000 Insults or 1000 Jokes.
2nd Prize: A royal wedding calendar, 1000 Insults or 1000 Jokes
3rd Prize: Some cheap ass rice

The goodies.

An astonishing 30 people participated in the main tournament (taking us by complete surprise). At the end of round one, 26 players still had tokens. Remaining competitors were Florence (Record breaking 42), Kosuke (26), Carley (25), Tom (24), Charlie (23), Shez (20), Jason (18), Ai (18), Hugo (17), Yoshi (17), Max (16), Shunsuke (14), Jamie G (12), Rob (12), Sarah (12), Aleasha (11), Hannah (11), Diana (10), Darlo (9), Noriko (9), Vikash (8), Miu (7), Chieko (5), Ged (5), Soji (4), Mamiya (2). Those who didn’t survive round one were Grace, Neil, Kazuya and Hokuto.

Unfortunately, due to an administrative error (in that Darlo misread Ai’s score as a 16) Ai didn’t go through to the next round. Instead, a match was played between Hugo and Yoshi, who both scored 17) to decide who took the last quarter final slot, with Hugo winning. Unfortunately this wasn’t noticed until after the final, and after it was realistically too late to change anything. As Ai’s final finish was crucial to the league, it was decided (with Ai’s approval, and after a massive heap of apologies) that in the SPRock 7 Tournament, Ai would take the top spot, and for each victory it would count as if she had won that respective tournament match.

SPRock 7 Tournament

The top seven competitors based on round ones ticket count made up The Panel. Members of this group stood to win a Xylophone and a Sliding Whistle if they could win seven matches in a row. The prize for a non-panel member stopping the run was a Sliding Whistle. The left over prize would be given away in an all-versus-Darlo tournament (like how the Simpsons Egg was given away in March). Due to the previous error, as well as several participants having to leave early, the order of participants was slightly adjusted. As the highest scoring panel member, Kosuke was given the first chance to win against Ai.
Panel Members
1. Ai
2. Kosuke
3. Carley
4. Tom
5. Charlie
6. Shez
7. Jason

Ai vs Kosuke (1 win) (Ai receives 3 league points for finishing in the Top 8)
Carley vs Kosuke (1 win)
Carley vs Tom (2 wins)
Carley vs Charlie (3 wins) (possibly the best sounding match all season)
Carley vs Shez (4 wins)
Carley vs Jason (5 wins)
Carley vs Yoshi (6 wins)
Carley vs Shunsuke (Shunsuke ends the run, winning a sliding whistle).

A particularly stunning final SPRock7 tournament which was moments away from producing a first 7 win straight. Congratulations to Shunsuke for his win, but also to Carley for setting such a top-notch record. Max, who pioneered the SPRock7 Tournament, also donated a special prize to be shared between the two finalists. The prize was a ticket to Tuesdays Euro-Millions draw, and given on the condition that if it wins a presentation would be done for the LURPS site. The numbers (a lucky dip) were 11-25-35-39-40 and the Lucky Stars 05-06. The raffle number was MWF873482. Though they did not win on the raffle, we’re thrilled to say that they DID win on the main draw. They matched 2 numbers (and no stars), netting them a total of £2.80 (£1.40 each). A presentation will be made when both players are available.

Super Xylophone and Sliding Whistle Tournament

In the last-man-standing tournament where everyone plays against Darlo (where you could stay in by either drawing or winning), the prizes of a Xylophone and Sliding Whistle were given away. We had a new wave of fresh faces in this tournament, taking the days total participants up past 40 people. Today the prizes went to Aleasha, who despite holding onto 11 tokens in the first tournament, did not manage to qualify any further.

The League – The Final Three

And so the league came to an end, but who would be taking the gold?

Ok, all three are goldish. But clearly one is better than the other two.

Prior to the tournament, it had been calculated that Tom would definately be winning a trophy. As Ai was seven points behind him, Tom only needed to ensure he took 4th place to guarantee him the first place position. Fortunately for Tom, his Top 8 position was enough to see him lift the first place trophy with a final total of 27 points.

From here on in, anyone from 2nd to 19th had the potential to take home a trophy (depending of course not only on their own performance but also other competitors). This was further driven home by the absence of some of the high league position holders, particularly then joint-third-place Hiroaki. Though unfortunately for Chieko, Aleasha, Max and Darlo, survival from round one just was not enough.

This left the trophies available to Ai (2nd, 17pts), Hannah (Jnt 3rd, 16pts), Ged (Jnt 5th, 15pts) and Shez (Jnt 5th, 15pts).

Hannah and Ged had survived round one, taking Hannah to 18 points and removing Ged from any possibly trophy place. However, Ai’s 3 points for making it to the top 8, giving her 20 points altogether, ensured that she would definately get a trophy (either 2nd or 3rd). It all depended on Shez’s performance. Had Shez beat Jason in the 3rd/4th Playoff, he would have reached 21 points and ended in second place. However, his tournament 4th place finish gave the second place trophey to Ai, placing him 3rd and pushing Hannah into 4th place.

And so the evening came to an end. And so the season came to an end. And so the society, started in February 2008, finally came to an end. Following the trophy presentation, Max presented Darlo with a handmade medal and a bottle of Appleton Special Rum (which Darlo was and still is incredibly thankful for).

We do hope that everyone who has come along to one of our events, whether participating or just observing, has enjoyed themselves and take the noble sport of Rock Paper Scissors with them wherever they go. Thank you all very much for getting involved, especially people who have come a long way to participate in Leeds. We’d like to give huge thanks to FAB Cafe for being so accomodating to us, and also to the Old Bar at Leeds Union where we had our humble beginnings. Thanks to the guys at Wacky Nation for making us feel welcome at the UK Championships. And not forgetting the guys at the World Rock Paper Scissors Society for being the trigger that got this gravy train going.

We’re going to be having a joint Otley Run event along with the Leeds Japanese Society on Saturday the 25th June, but more details about that will follow later. Remember if you’re interested in taking over this society from next year, please use the contact form below.

Thank you all.

—–*****—–*****—–
RULES (Simple Version)
– Only throws of Rock, Paper or Scissors will be permitted. Throwing, or claiming to throw, any other move may result in disqualification from the tournament.
– Rock – Rock is to be made by making a fist facing the opponent with the thumb either tucked in or to the side.
– Scissors – Scissors is made like rock, only the index and middle fingers are to point outward towards the opponent.
– Paper – Paper is made by presenting your hand either palm up or palm down (never sideways/standing up) with all fingers together and pointing towards the opponent, not ‘fanned open’.
– Priming (aka Pumping, or ‘What to go on’) – It is very important that both players throw their move at the same time. Therefore we say that both players give three primes before throwing, meaning you bounce your hand 3 times and throw on four. (For example; One …… Two …… Three …… Four (throw when you say four, not after))
– Matches will be played on a best out of 3 Game-basis (i.e. the first to win two hands).
– ‘Smack talk’, ‘putting off’, trying to ‘psyche out’ a player and so on is all fine, however no physical contact is permitted. That being said bad sportsmanship will not be tolerated (i.e. lying about the throw you have just done to try and win a hand you actually lost).
– The judge’s decision is final.
—–*****—–*****—–
– The tournament will begin with each player receiving three tokens.
– Each player will try to play as many people as possible in the allotted time.
– When a player wins a match (not a game), he/she takes a token from his opponent.
– When a person loses all of their tokens, they will be eliminated from the tournament.
– At the end of the allotted time, the 8 players with the most tokens will advance to the
– If there are only 8 players remaining before time runs out, time will be called early.
– Those 8 players will then play a random opponent, with the winner advancing forward.
– The two semi-final losers will play each other for 3rd place before the final.
– The finalists will play each other on a best of 3 Match-basis (i.e. the first to win two matches).

Today the prizes went to Ikumi, who despite surviving round one didn’t have enough tokens to progress to the quarter finals, but did win the SPROCK tournament, becoming the first player to win two tournaments in one day.

So huge congratulations to all of tonights winners, and thank you all for participating. The league is now heating up, with just one tournament left to go. Tom has taken a huge league lead and has guaranteed himself a space in the top three. Though for the remaining two trophy positions, currently anyone with 6 points or more has the potential to win a trophy!

The final tournament will be happening on the 7th June, so we look forward to seeing you then.

Tournament 6 Results – Now The League’s Looking Good

April 13, 2011

The sixth tournament of the LURPS calendar was held at FAB Cafe on Tuesday 5th April. It was announced that there would be two more tournaments this season (one in May before exams and one in June after). We will also be holding a half-Otley-Run in June as our final event (possibly the final event ever if no one can be found to take over next year).

15 competitors entered tonights event, knowing the league was still open for anyone of them to win.

Regular Tournament

1st Prize – A KK Slider (とたけけ) toy from Animal Crossing (どうぶつの森), a Build Your Own Backpack Alarm kit, Dr Itami’s Deluxe Brain Games, a Mills and Boone ‘romantic’ novel.
2nd Prize – Dr Itami’s Deluxe Brain Games, a Mills and Boone ‘romantic’ novel.
3rd Prize – Some cheap ass instant noodles.

At the end of round one, ten players still had tokens remaining. In another incredible twist of fate, currently joint league leader Tom lost all of his tokens, and given the fact that the other joint leader, Natsuki, has returned to Japan, first place was really up for grabs. Also interesting was that Ged, who was only one point behind them, also was eliminated in the first round. The race for the top of the league was on. The remaining competitors were Ai (17), Shota (15), Hiroaki (14), Darlo (12), Jason (12), Sayako (10), Yuko (10), Diana (6), Kazuya (5), Max (4). Darlo then played Jason to determine who would go higher, with Darlo winning (which turned out to be irrelevant as they were to play each other in the next round). Similarly, Sayako played Yuko with Sayako winning. Players who unfortunately ran out of tokens were (in order who went out first) Tom, Ged, Shez, Carley and Yohei.

Quarter Finals
Ai vs Diana
Hiroaki vs Sayako
Shota vs Yuko
Darlo vs Jason (an interesting match between the two members who had been here every season)

Semi Finals
Ai vs Hiroaki
Yuko vs Darlo

3rd/4th Playoff

SPRock 7 Tournament

The prize for a non-panel member stopping the run was a jar of pickled mussles the popcorn. The left over prize would be given away in an all-versus-Darlo tournament (like how the Simpsons Egg was given away in March). As the highest scoring panel members, Ai and Shota were given the first chance to win.

Super Special Panda Bank Tournament

In the last-man-standing tournament where everyone plays against Darlo (where you could stay in by either drawing or winning), the prize of a Panda Bank was given away. Today the prize went to Sayako, who had made it through to the Quarter Finals of the main tournament, and was the final Panel member of the SPROCK tournament.

So huge congratulations to all of tonights winners, and thank you all for participating. The league is now heating up, with just two points seperating the top five players, and only two more tournaments left this season. How will this season pan out? We’ll have to wait and see!

The next tournament will be happening next month (May), so we look forward to seeing you then.

Tournament 5 Results & Big League Update

March 10, 2011

A huge thank you to all who came and participated in last nights tournaments at Fab Cafe. 12 participants entered the main tournament with a shot of not only winning some awesome prizes, but also going for some all important league points. As Darlo had an unrealistic lead on the league, he agreed to a 20 point penalty to invoke more competition into the league.

There was also a special moment for one of our regulars at the end of the night. Nao Fujihara, an exchange student from Kumamoto, will soon be returning to Japan after a year of studying in Leeds. Nao has been a remarkable member of LURPS this season. As well as being the only member to attend all of this season’s LURPS events since the first one back in September, she also came to London when we went to the UK Championships in November. To mark this achievement, we presented now with a Certificate and also a medal. Unfortunately this month we will lose some of our regular international players, all of whom will be missed. Have a good trip home guys.

One other announcement, if you fancy taking the helm of LURPS next season, running your own society without the pressures, paperwork, and unnecessary faff of the Union itself (Uni, Met or other), then get in touch with Darlo.

Regular Tournament

Held on Pancake Day, so we had a wealth of pancake and Easter related prizes.

1st Prize – 2 bottles of pancake mix, lemon juice, 4 hot cross buns, an Easter craft kit, a set of Easter cards, and the wonderful book Rude Britain.
2nd Prize – Lemon juice, a set of Easter cards.
3rd Prize – 2 packs of some cheap-ass instant noodles (a minor cock up meant I was quite generous this time around.

At the end of round one, ten players still had tokens remaining. Unfortunately league leader Tom lost all of his tokens, which really set up a race for a possible new league leadership. The remaining competitors were Ged (23), Oscar (20), Max (16), Shez (14), Aleasha (13), Hannah (10), Natsuki (9), Karen (7), Darlo (4), Ai (2), Nao (1).

SPRock 7 Tournament

The top seven competitors based on round ones ticket count made up The Panel. Members of this group stood to win a Simpsons Easter egg, and a pack of 3 Cadburys Creme Eggs if they could win seven matches in a row. The prize for a non-panel member stopping the run was a pack of small chocolate eggs and the three Creme Eggs; the Simpsons Egg would be given away some other way. As the highest scoring panel member, Ged (and technically Oscar as well) were given the first chance to win.

Super Special Simpsons Egg Tournament

The last time we ran a SPRock tournament, we could easily give the main prize to everyone as it was a huge tin of chocolate. However as this was a one-piece prize, it had to be given away. Max, who masterminded the SPRock tournament in the first place, suggested the ingenious idea of Last Man Standing.

Darlo stood at the front of a line of participants, stood shoulder to shoulder, and threw a throw down (in a funk dance-like way, similar to a move on DDR). At the same time, participants also threw, trying to beat Darlo’s choice. Those who lost were out, and sat down. Those who beat or drew with Darlo continued, until eventually only one person remained. The Winner.

Congratulations to Dan Brooks who came too late to join the main event, but on time enough to win a Simpsons egg.

So huge congratulations to all of tonights winners, and thank you all for participating. The league is now heating up, with just one point seperating the top three players, and only two more tournaments left this season. How will this season pan out? We’ll have to wait and see!

The next tournament will be happening next month (April), so we look forward to seeing you then.

Remember you can always email us or join the facebook group.
