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.

Yumezukuri Yokozuna Promotion
Due to his special feat of winning two yusho in a row and accumulating 24 wins over the last two tournaments, Yumezukuri will be promoted to yokozuna in the next banzuke. He will be the 5th yokozuna in the modern history of the Sumo Game, which will see two yokozuna at the top of the banzuke for the first time. Congratulations!

Aki Basho 2021 - Day 15
Ozeki Yumezukuri was the only one of the leaders to win and so he takes a second straight yusho to strengthen his Yokozuna promotion credentials.
Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii lost today but has 31 wins in three tournaments and can therefore be considered for ozeki promotion.
In Juryo Fujiyama lost again and Kaiowaka won but Fujiyama wins the tie-break by virtue of his superior score.
Makushita ended up a thriller as Oyama and Kashunowaka ended up with 13-2 records and identical scores. As they did not meet each other this tournament, the next tie-break rule - most 8+ scoring days - came into play. Oyama had 5 to Kashunowaka's 4 and therefore he wins a very close-fought yusho.
Congratulations to all the winners. See you back in November where we may very well have a new Yokozuna and ozeki.

Aki Basho 2021 - Day 14
Ozeki Yumezukuri lost today and allowed Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii and Andonishiki back into the yusho race. All three face different opponents tomorrow. Yumezukuri has a one-point advantage over Andonishiki if it comes to a tie. The sekiwake would probably need both of his rivals to lose and win himself as he is several points off the pace.
In Juryo Fujiyama lost but so did Kaiowaka and his scoring advantage should ensure victory even if he loses tomorrow. Oyama is the sole leader in Makushita but Kashunowaka can catch him if he wins tomorrow while Oyama loses AND scores at least one point better.
As alluded to yesterday, both Ozeki Yumezukuri and Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii now have the numbers for possible promotions to prestigious ranks. Wins tomorrow would greatly aid their causes and make denial very difficult.
Good luck to all the contenders.
