    Von ZerBarr Open  (El Crapolo)
    Finished on: Sunday Mar 28 '21 at 23:59 UTC

    Finding 'Good' crap games is not easy. It involves a little bit of science, a little bit of art, and a lot of playing random games. Throughout the years we've been blessed to play many crap tournament games that end up being both fun and competitive. Much of the credit for finding those games goes to three individuals that we honour with the Von ZerBarr Open. They are of course Von Dummpenstein, Zerst and Barra.

    CAGDC Classic  (El Crapolo)
    Finished on: Sunday Jan 24 '21 at 23:59 UTC

    The Crap Tournaments were born in the forums of CAGDC during the early years of the King of Kong CAG boom. While that site has all but disappeared we still honour the legacy of what CAG gamers did while part of that community. Countless forum threads shared tips and information about the top CAG games and the hidden gems. That sharing of knowledge and transparency of gameplay skills is what helped birth CAG live streams and eventually other modern sites like DKF.

This event is called an invitational but it's open to everyone as Bill's crap invitations were always about getting more people to love the games.
