Pete Gibbon's Schweinerei tournament

Schweinerei is the German name for the popular game "Pass the Pigs". Pete Gibbon's Schweinerei tournament usually takes place on the second night of the break, over drinks after the evening meal. It involves, not surprisingly, a game of Schweinerei. The winner of the game takes possession of a sealed envelope which contains a destination that has been provided in advance and is unknown to anyone on the mission.

On the night of the draw, the holder of the envelope must choose to play it in either Kurt's veto round, Shaft's shaft round, or Grosser Vass's making grosser round. The choice must be made in advance. If a destination is vetoed, shafted or made grosser in the chosen round then the sealed envelope is opened and the destination inside read out. This destination then replaces the vetoed or shafted destination, or accompanies the additional destination that results from a making grosser. If nothing happens in the round in which the envelope is played, then the destination is not used.

Pete Gibbon's tournament first took place on Mission 15 Image:20px-Flag_of_Switzerland.svg.png Image:Colonel.png15 Geneva.

Since Mission 19 Image:22px-Flag_of_Malta.svg.png Image:Colonel.png19 Valletta the winner of Pete Gibbon's tournament may, if he is unhappy with the revealed destination, invoke the Gozerian to replace it.

The eighth tournament, on Mission 22 Image:22px-Flag_of_Portugal.svg.png Image:Colonel.png22 Lisbon, was notable for being the first that was subject to a rain delay. The competition could only be resumed after hastily relocating to an indoor venue.

Positioning the pigs

There was controversy in earlier missions when Steve was alleged to be trying to influence the result by controlling the position and orientation of the pigs immediately before throwing. Some observers think that an unfair advantage can be gained by this strategy. Ironically, Steve's own results have not seen a significant boost through use of this technique.

The current official line is that positioning the pigs is legal but to be avoided; however it is likely that all professional squads today use pig positioning concepts to some extent.

Sponsorship

Schweinerei's profile received a major boost on Mission 24 Image:22px-Flag_of_the_Netherlands.svg.png Image:Colonel.png24 Arnhem when the international federation announced a €9.40 sponsorship deal with 2 bottles of "Op & Top".
