Battle of Sexes
  • Ingo Althofer at 2006-04-18


    this night (April 18) a battle of sexes
    will take place on

    in “EinStein wurfelt nicht”.
    Seven men and seven ladies
    will go in combat (8 games
    for each cross-pairing). The
    team with the better total scores
    Start is around 19:30 German time.
    Spectators are welcome.

    Ingo Althofer.

    PS: In contrast to the situation on LG
    the EinStein family on inetplay has
    more than 50 % women and girls. And
    there is a good chance that the ladies
    might win the battle this night.

    Yes, unfortunately, there are very few men here at golem.

    The battle is over – and to my surprise
    the men achieved a convincing team win
    by 234-192. However, the best single
    score was achieved by a member of the
    ladies' team, “Madam”.

    Somewhere I missed something:

    > Somewhere I missed something:

    Right, when a match ended 4-4,
    each team got 4 points.
    However when a match had a winner,
    this winner got 1 bonus point.
    For instance: 5-3 resulted in 6-3.

    This rule was to strengthen the team character:
    for instance, to make two wins of 5-3 each more
    valuable than one 6-2 win.
