No, it’s not August! But to celebrate the release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup 0.8, “Frantic Frenzied Felines”, various members of the Crawl community have banded together to run an unofficial tournament. Of course, August’s Tourney will run as scheduled.

From May 14th (midnight UTC) through May 30 (midnight UTC), 2011, any version 0.8 game played on CDO or CAO will count towards the tournament.

As with the official tournament, one can join a team, gain banners (or pennants) for various accomplishments, and, most importantly, accrue points for various activities.

All of the details for the tournament can be found here (

Good luck, and good crawling!
