Welcome to the Sumo Game!

The Sumo Game at japan-guide.com is an online game for sumo fans. Goal of the game is to predict the performance of real sumo wrestlers during tournaments. Our Sumo Game resembles real sumo tournaments quite closely in that players will confront each other in daily bouts and will be promoted or demoted in our banzuke according to their results.

Hatsu Basho 2019 - Day 7
Both Makuuchi leaders slipped up today, and so did their immediate pursuers. This led to an opening-up of the race. No less than nine pursuers now await another loss. This group includes all three komusubi.
Juryo's leadership is whittled down to four players. This group includes one of the game's veterans: Hakase, who has not been in Makuuchi since 2001.
Kobashi and Sasuke lead Makushita with unblemished records.

Hatsu Basho 2019 - Day 6
As we approach the first weekend the yusho races have very much taken shape. Makuuchi is led by the unbeaten duo of Andonishiki and ScreechingOwl. A group of three that includes Komusubi Natsunoyama is one off the pace.
Juryo's leaders both lost today to fall into a group of six with five wins. And Makushita boasts an unbeaten pair: Kobashi and Sasuke.

Hatsu Basho 2019 - Day 3
Happy New Year and welcome all to a brand new year of Sumo Game. Thanks to everyone for your continued participation, and a special welcome to all the newcomers in Makushita.
There is plenty of uncertainty on the real dohyo as the Ozeki have only one win between them after three days, as do two of the Yokozuna. How has this translated to our virtual battleground?
Makuuchi is led by an undefeated group of six, including Sekiwake Chocshoporyu, who can be promoted to ozeki with 13 wins. Still a long way off for that though.
Juryo is led by a group of seven that includes former Sekiwake Survivor, who will be hoping for a quick return to the top division. Makushita has yet to take shape.
At the top of the banzuke there is little to report apart from Yokozuna Pandaazuma being on 'soft' kadoban, meaning that he can only afford one more losing record before being in imminent danger of losing the top rank. He will be hoping to get 8 quickly this time to shake off that tag. No promotions to Ozeki are likely this time, but a good score could set a lucky player up very nicely for a run in March.
Good luck to all the players!

Kyushu Basho 2018 - Day 15
Long-time leader Asashimaru lost to Kogaratsu but Andrasoyamawaka got past Norizo to achieve the same record and, with a superior score, he takes his first ever Makuuchi yusho. Congratulations. It was a good performance in a difficult and unpredictable tournament.
Bolo and Wakamasuto both won with very strong scores but Bolo has the higher total and wins a second straight Juryo yusho. Promotion to Makuuchi next tournament will be the reward. Bolo was also the highest scorer in all divisions by far.
And in Makushita, Amateratsu continued the excellent start to his Sumo Game career with a first-ever yusho.
The scoring average was 5.71 - the lowest in Sumo Game history. This was perhaps not surprising with all the high profile absences.
And finally, Pandaazuma lost and his kadoban counter is now set to 1. Yamashiro can look forward to starting 2019 as a safe ozeki.
Thanks to all the players for participating this year. And congratulations to our divisional champions.
