True that.  I've been trying to figure out how make twisted work. 
There are SO many things, that I have no clue what exactly to use.

That is what I would like.  If twisted would allow me to concentrate
on the game-logic, and tournament logic, that would be great... but I
have no clue where to start.

There are 2 main different type of logics.  One is the tournament
logic (which keeps track of the games being played, the schedules, and
the results), and the other is the actuall game logic (rules,
turn-change, time-outs).  It would be nice if there was somewhat 1
instance of the tournament, and multiple ongoing games.

Anyway, if someone can give me a push-start, it'd be nice :)  Oh, and
I'm not scared to read doco, if the doco is actually going to help me
get the job accomplished (which so far hasn't).

Cheerz, Daniel.
