Tue 8 June 2010 6 comments

GIFFA System, Principles & Rules: 2 May 2010

Sun 2 May 2010 19 comments

The GIFFA System was summarized again last month.  The system was first summarized about a year ago (then in the name of “FIOFAFI“).

The core values or principles we play to were summarized even earlier, in March 2009.  Essentially, it is about participating and playing in the right spirit.

The rules we play to were also summarized about a year ago.  There have been some changes since then, and I said in January 2010 that I’d summarize the rules again.

I’ll summarize the system, principles and rules as comments below, so that they can all be found under one post.

I’ve also developed a standard template for each scheduling thread on the Schedule Board of the GIFFA Message Board.  The standard template will also be added as a comment below for ease of reference.
