Tournament

99 Luftballons: Inspired by Nena's anti-war 1983 hit, Rock Block's summer 2022 tournament offers players the same choice faced by the characters in the lyrics: Hoard power for themselves, or share it to improve everyone's chances. With each victory, they can pop one of their own balloons, or pop someone else's to get more simultaneous concerts. The first player to have all 99 of their balloons popped will become the winner.

Comments

Scott Hardie | August 2

Congrats on the new play rule! It reminds me of a certain wall decoration you had long ago.

Matthew Preston | August 5

Thanks! I honestly didn't think I'd ever unlock that rule, so I'm grateful for this tournament. I also still have that Yield sign and have had it displayed for years.

Matthew Preston | August 13

And just curious. What is the record for the most wins in one month? Did my strategy earn me that title? You and Steve are tough to beat in that arena.

Scott Hardie | August 14

It's you by far. Only four people have unlocked the rule, and here's the top three months for each of them by number of wins:

Chris Lemler: 39 in December 2019, 36 in January 2020, 33 in November 2019

Matthew Preston: 169 in July 2022, 83 so far in August 2022, 51 in July 2019

Scott Hardie: 68 in July 2022, 62 in June 2019, 56 in July 2019

Steve West: 74 in September 2019, 72 in October 2019, 71 in August 2021
