Fi Thorne Hi Dave, will it be mainly against robots?

Dave Robjohns Mostly yep! There will be a few events against people but only one where you’ll have more than one opponent at a time and I’ll give a whole month for that round. Also gave the option last time of only signing up for bot events.

One other thing to mention, nobody will actually be playing 100 events, the most around 60

Mike Lee This tourney only happens every 4 years and I joined Apto just before the last one. It’s the best tourney for variety and fun and Dave’s imagination to theme events around Apto variants is amazing.

I encourage everyone to give this tourney a try.

CHINA!!!!!!!

Fi Thorne You've sold it to me Mike! :-)

Dan Spinks I was just thinking that it couldn't possibly be 4 years since the mighty China last competed in this then realised that the 2020 olympics were in 2021. what a weird world we used to live in

Dave Robjohns Presenting the 100 events of the 2024 Aptolympiad: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_7LILrEOFh2Uv5h1NhEpGVeP1Q4oXlroPXGfaHgVwk8/edit#gid=87073445

All subject to change (especially the obnoxious colour scheme), dates to be added in soon.

Teams will be decided on 23rd, I will try and retain most nationalities as I know some teams built up strong loyalty - but obviously some balancing and merging may be needed depending on numbers, plus Russia won't be competing in Paris

Suggestions also welcomed as some of you will know certain sports better than I do and have great ideas for relevant events - Sam's climbing event a good example (although they've only gone and changed the actual olympic event so it doesn't fit anymore!! - keeping it anyway)

Tourney round: Aptolympics: Paris 2024: Sign-up round

<< S28 Division 3 | Paris 2024: Event 1: Archery >>

Notes from the organizer: Aptolympics is back for a third edition! This time we're off to Paris (& Tahiti), where the 33rd edition of the world's largest sports event will be taking place in July & August, with equal numbers of male and female athletes for the first time competing across 329 events.

Aptolympics will as ever feature every one of those sports (with 2 bonus paralympic sports!), with 100 imaginary shiny gold medals up for grabs this time round, with opportunities across all variants.

Over two editions we've seen 90 players now battle it out over 150 events with team France, led by Tom Cappleman's 14 individual golds, coming out on top in 2021.

2024 will feature 4 sports split into rating categories and at least 8 where players can choose which format/variant to enter, giving everyone plenty of chances to challenge for medals and play tactically. I also intend to run 7 of the events "live", so look out for those! Will definitely be something for everyone and plenty of team play.

The tournament will run for 7 weeks from 23rd June, culminating on 11th August in parallel with the Olympics.

The obligatory massive spreadsheet is currently being finalised... I'll aim to publish that at some point in the next week.

Please feel free to wing me any questions & whack your sign-ups in here!
