1. Downtime notice - Oct. 17, 2017

    Well, it's a permanent downtime. After 22 years of service it's time for a final goodbye. Our live production servers will be taken offline on October 17th. The simple fact is that there are plenty of better ways to get the secrets hidden in games and connect with other gamers. There are plenty of Youtube channels and Twitch streams that will show games played at their best, something that plain text and screenshots can't convey. If you want to connect to other gamers outside of those services, there are plenty of Discord servers that offer a direct and engaging community experience.

    Please visit our friends at GameFAQs.com or IGN.com for information such as codes, guides, reviews, etc. They're the real deal and have always been respectful and honest about how they operate. Our ghost pages can be found on Archive.org for those times that you'd like to take a look back at how things were.

    Thanks to everyone that has contributed content and time managing our community, and especially to you, our dear visitors!

    Our last words: "Up ,Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, A, B, Select, Start"

    A: Leave of Absence


    1. Leave of absence is for anyone. If you are going to be gone for a period of time and don't want to be dropped from the scoreboard, then post it, PM me, or contact me over AIM. To see who is on LOA, look at the top.

    B: General rules

    1. Players may join in at any time, though joining in the middle of a season will likely put you at a points disadvantage.

    2. The type of rounds are in the roster that I post. I post a new one with every round.

    3. 'Bet' by simply posting a bet on any character of your choice and the color you want that character to be. The amount of bets you may place are variable depending on the round at hand. You may not reserve bets for any rounds under any circumstances.

    C: The points system

    1. You will begin with 150 points. When you bet, you must bet on a character(see section B-2), and then wager an amount.
    1b. Your bet must be at least 10% of what you have, or five (5) points, whichever is greater. Although there is a minimum bet, there is no maximum bet.

    2. The SSBGG runs on a poker-style betting system. If you lose all of your points in a season, you are disqualified for the rest of that season.

    3. You will lose/gain points depending on where your character finishes. Here is a breakdown of the scoring system:

    3b.

    Winner/1st: 5x bet
    Final match elimination/2nd: 3x bet
    Semifinal elimination/3rd: Push(get what you bet)
    1st round elimination/4th: Lose what you bet

    3c. Team battles are a little different:

    Winning team: 5x bet
    Losing team: Lose

    *If you don't understand what I mean by 1st round and semifinals and all that, set up an 8-person tournament on your game and watch it through to help you understand.

    4. Once two bets are placed, a 72-hour timer will start. If there are not 4 bets by the time this deadline is reached, the round will commence anyway. In case of this, scoring is as follows:

    3-man Brawl
    1st: 3x
    2nd: Push
    3rd: Lose

    2-man Brawl
    1st: 2x
    2nd: Lose


    5. The first better to reach 2000 points is the winner of that season. In the event two players reach over 2000 at the same time, the two (or more) players will engage in a sudden death match. Once a season is over, a new one will begin.

    D: Bonus Questions

    1. Bonus Questions will appear randomly through the seasons (Not in ToCs). The question will be posted along with a point amount.

    2. You may only post ONE answer every 24 hours.

    3. The FIRST guesser with the EXACT correct answer will receive the bonus. Bonus questions are invalid after a correct answer, or if declared invalid by the host.

    E: Challenges

    1. Each player gets one challenge per season. At -ANY- point in the season, players may use this challenge to challenge another player. The challenge match will be held, and results posted along with the following round. All challenges are a standard 1-stock Brawl at Final Destination, with all weapons on medium.

    1a. Challenge use will be denoted with an asterik (*). Players with an asterik before their name have used their challenge.

    2. The challenging player sets the wages. The bet may not exceed half of the total of your opponent's points, and may not exceed all of your own points. For example, if you are challenging a player with 100 points, you may not challenge him or her for more than 50 points. If you have less than 50 points yourself in that same scenario, you may only wager what you have.

    3. Challenges may be refused by the challenged player at a penalty of half the requested wage.

    F: Deductions

    1. Over-betting: Over-betting is when you bet after the last possible bet has been placed. Violation will result in your bet being ignored and a fine of 35 points.

    1b. If you over-bet within 5 minutes of the last bet, the penalty is excused.

    2. Duplication of a bet: Duplication of a bet is when you bet on the same character AND color as a previous bet. Do not confuse this with just betting the same character. If someone has already bet on your choice character, you can still bet on that character if you select a different color. For example, it is legal to bet on the black Link if someone has already bet on the regular Link. Violation will result in a 25 point penalty and your bet being changed to a different color if there is a different color available. In the case that there is no other color available, you will be asked to change your bet immediately. If you duplicate a bet within 5 minutes of the bet you duplicated, the penalty will be excused.

    3. If you notice that you have posted a violation of rules, simply post again correcting your violation BEFORE the round which the violation is involved in starts and the penalty will be waived.

    G: Other rules/regulations

    1. If for some reason I make a mistake, inform me of it and I will correct it in my next post.

    2. If you do not respond in the gambling game for several rounds, your name will be highlighted in red. If your name is highlighted in red, you will have 3 rounds to contact me. Failure to do so will result in your elimination from the current season. Betters eliminated from a season may join in again with the default amount of points.


    H: The Tournament of Champions

    1. Every four seasons, a Tournament of Champions (TOC) will be held. This is a mini-season that is restricted to only the 4 people who won the seasons and the host. There are special rules for the TOC, posted below.

    2. The rounds are regular settings and are 4-man Brawls at Final Destination.

    3. Participants are to post a 5-round roster of the characters they want to choose, rather than posting them one at a time.

    3b. Example:

    Round 1: Link(black)
    Round 2: Link(black)
    Round 3: Fox
    Round 4: Jigglypuff
    Round 5: Ganondorf

    4. There are no gambles. Instead, there is a points awarding system as follows:

    4b. Example:

    1st: 3 pts
    2nd: 2 pts
    3rd: 1 pt
    4th: Nothing

    5. In the event that a person has won two times in the course of those 4 seasons, he/she will be able to post two rosters and have two characters in the matches simultaneously. This will greatly increase the odds of that person winning, so it is encouraged that you win as many seasons as possible. Though, if you win 3 seasons, the second person who reaches 2000 will join the TOC.

    6. The first player to gain 10 pts is the winner of the TOC. This is the most sought-after victory in the SSBM Gambling Game. Although there is no actual prize(yet), you can take pride in your name being put in under the TOC winners directory and which tourney you won.


    ~What are you waiting for!?! Join the SSBM Gambling Game today!~

    ***Round 6*** (Downgraded to 4-man Brawl)

    Bets:


    Jeffie: Green Olimar, 100 pts
    B. Rex: Toon Link, 250 pts
    FZero: White MK, 263 pts
    Chris!: White Marth, 600 pts



    Highlights:

    -MK is KO'd extremely early on in the match by a F-smash from Marth very close to the edge of the stage, KO'd with only 32%.
    -The same exact thing happens in quick succession to Toon Link, then to Olimar, both KO'd under 40%. Marth wins the match in a record 0:13, 0% damage, and before any smash balls appeared.

    Standings before challenges:

    1st: Chris!, 3000 pts
    2nd: Krazy Koco King, 1750 pts
    3rd: Alice!, 1437 pts
    4th: Bulbasaurus Rex, 375 pts
    5th: Jeffie!, 360 pts
    6th: FalconZero, 187 pts
    7th: Pyro, ZeLdAtWiLiGhT!!, Donnachaidh: Out


    Conspiracy theorists unite! I TOLD you all that the challenges weren't the end-all of this season! There will be a sudden death!

    Challenges

    Alice!(Green Pikachu) vs. Krazy Koco King(Black MK)for 875 pts
    -Pikachu leads early on strong with a 32-nil, but MK stages a comeback, evening things up at around 45%. Dragoon pieces start to fall.
    -MK assembles the dragoon, and Pikachu is toast at 127%!

    For shiggles, FalconZero won the challenge with B. Rex by a landslide...but that doesn't matter, because we have our winners!



    Final standings:



    1st: Chris!, 3000 pts
    2nd: Krazy Koco King, 2625 pts

    3rd: Alice!, 562 pts
    4th: FalconZero, 374 pts
    5th: Jeffie!, 360 pts
    6th: Bulbasaurus Rex, 188 pts
    7th: Pyro, ZeLdAtWiLiGhT!!, Donnachaidh: Out

    ***Round The Last***

    Bets:
    Chris! - Wedding Marth
    Krazy Koco King - Black MK

    Match Details
    The combatants stare each other down for a moment before charging each other. Marth lands the first two hits and a fierce back and forth edge guard battle begins. They both recover and take the fight to the middle of the stage; both fighters are evenly matched as the damage counters rise. Marth starts taking control, blasting Metaknight to the right over and over again. It eventually proves to be too much as a solid bair destroys the proud Star Warrior at ~140 damage. Marth had taken ~120.


    Thus, Chris! is the winner of Season 57. But don't just rest on your laurels, the next Season starts right now!

    Co-hosts, stand in plz. I'm gonna be out all weekend...

    EDIT: Alright, that took a little longer than expected. Back into the swing of things tomorrow hopefully.

    Where are the co-hosts?

    Double edit: YES! Typing in with the events of last weekend, it appears I have left my copy of Brawl 150 miles east of me. It's going to be at least like Tuesday before I get it back.

    Soooo...yeah. Barring co-host intervention (Which looks dim lately), we're in park for a while.

    AAAAAAAAUUUGHHH I SUCK AT LIFE


    Here we gooo!!!

    ***Round 2*** (Downgraded to 8-man Tourney)

    Bets:

    Pyro: Lucario, 75 pts
    Koco: Red Kirby, 30 pts
    Jeffie: Blue Falco, 300 pts
    FZero: Fire (white) Mario, 70 pts
    B. Rex: MetaKnight, 70 pts
    ZeLdA: Green G&W, 400 pts
    Chris!: MetaKnight (I made you pink. :p), 95 pts

    Quarterfinals:

    Round 1 (White Mario vs Lucario):
    Contestants exchange blows in a very dull way until Lucario lands a nicely executed Counter, KOing Mario @ ~150%.

    Round 2 (MetaKnight vs human):
    MK advances.

    Round 3 (Green Game & Watch vs Blue Falco):
    G&W dominates until about 40% when Falco pulls off a nice throw combo to even the scores.
    Falco enjoys a slight lead for the remainder of the match, but:
    G&W D-smashes his way to victory.

    Round 4 (Pink MetaKnight vs Red Kirby):
    Kirby leads the match with a nice flurry of kicks, but MK brings the hurt pretty soon with a tornado and some swordplay.
    Kirby Smashes the crap out of MK to KO him at only 83%.


    Semifinals:

    Round 1 (Lucario vs MetaKnight):
    The brawlers hold even to about 40%, then Lucario gains the lead with a beautiful back throw to fully charged aura sphere combo.
    They beat on each other some more until MK gimps Lucario off the right side of the stage.

    Round 2 (Green Game & Watch vs Red Kirby):
    G&W relentlessly sausages Kirby for the first 10 seconds, taking the lead.
    After some exchanged blows, Kirby inhales G&W at ~50%, and subsequently fails to successfully land another hit.
    G&W, with a devastating lead, finishes Kirby off using the Judgment Hammer at 115%.

    Finals:

    MetaKnight vs Green Game & Watch
    G&W leads with a Turtle.
    Power shifts back and forth until the competitors are about even around 70%.
    MK proves to be the Gimping King, and G&W falls to his death.

    Results:

    Winner: MetaKinght
    Runner-up: Green Game & Watch
    Push: Lucario, Red Kirby
