SERIES 7 SAW MORE ACTION THIS WEEKEND, AND WILL DO SO AGAIN NEXT WEEKEND
NEW MULTIPLE WINNER WINS TWO OF THE WEEKEND'S GAMES
All-time CRT winning champion Shanna got a late start this season, but with this weekend's passing, she maintains a seemingly insurmountable lead of total wins with two victories this past weekend. These two wins qualify Shanna as an alternate multiple winner. Three players tried Series 8 for the first time, doing very well, and one of them won that game. Series 7 continues to receive high praise and may be on the way to be next season's most desired version. Series 12 continues to trend to shorter games, clocking in at just under five hours. A foretelling of the championships? Time will tell! Details and photos can be seen on the 21st SEASON TIMELINE PAGE, and three new photos have been added to the PHOTO GALLERY PAGE, including the above photo.
The season is winding down with 9 games left. Two of Series 6, one of Series 7, one of Series 2 and one of Series West, and the rest Series 12 and 12.1 are currently on the schedule. Series 6 and 7 have drawn attention, bringing them up to par with the other versions. Surprisingly, Series 4 saw very little traffic this season, along with Series 11, which apparently continues to intimidate players. CRT's schedule will be tight with Series 12 games happening each weekend. Players are asked to promptly inform The Park of any changes that may be needed.
WHAT GOES ON BEHIND THE SCENES?
Have you ever wondered what takes place behind the scenes? What exactly must happen to make a game of CRT operate successfully? Now, you can find out, and perhaps appreciate the effort that goes in to assuring your visit to The Park is a successful experience. You'll get to see CRT's most technically complex version get assembled, and get the details concerning the setting up of each version. This is a one-of-a-kind CRT SPOTLIGHT article, posted only for a limited time. Don't miss it!
CRT WALL OF FAME PREMIERES
CRT players for several years have enjoyed the Park's entrance being lined with photos featuring the movies and TV shows that appear in each of CRT's versions. That display has been radically changed in the past week. It has been converted into the "Wall of Fame," or perhaps we should say the "Wall of Shame," depending on one's perspective. The stairwell entrance now pays homage to CRT's players. Pictures are numerous and show CRT in action. A few date back to the 15th season, but most pictures are from this season or the 20th season. On the opposite wall the twelve versions of CRT are featured in numerical order as one descends the steps. Be sure to check it out on your next visit to The Park!

PROPOSED CHANGES ANNOUNCED FOR 22nd SEASON
As players now know, CRT's popularity is a stunning fact everyone has had to come to grips with. With the entire season booked by the end of October, players have found available dates a rarity, and chances at filling in empty slots stringently reduced. With the successful moratorium protocol, most players were granted equal opportunities to play CRT, resulting in fewer APBs. Unfortunately, there appears to be no relief in sight to these tight circumstances, which will likely get tighter. It's the nature of wrangling with the beast CRT has become.
The moratorium protocol may be utilized next season, but for now the current plan is to permit a specific group* to reserve 1 game on the schedule. After that game is played, that specific group may reserve its next game. Social CRT players that integrate themselves into multiple networks can assure they play plenty of CRT during the season, and by playing with different people, they become better players in the process. It is hoped this condition will also allow opportunities for more players to book a game in the early months and avoid the shut-outs experienced this season. Of course players must also be alert and committed to play CRT in order to secure an early season game. To assure experienced players have the opportunity to play in the late season and extend the possibility of placing in the multiple winners roster, games involving beginners will not be scheduled in the final third of the season, during the months of March and April. Our thanks are extended to all players for supporting and conforming to this season's protocols. It made managing CRT's schedule as easy as it could be, given the circumstances inherent in the high demand.
The current intended Multiple Winner Championship version will be Series 7: Heroes of the Realm. Series 7 is the only version of CRT that has not appeared in the Multiple Winner event, primarily due to the successive introductions of Series 8 in Season 16, Series X in Season 17, Series 11 in Season 18 (in which the revamped Series 4 was the championship game), Series 11 being the championship version for Season 19, and utilizing the classic versions in the Season 20 Championships. Series 12 and 12.1 are serving in this season's championship event. With its many added features and the reputation of becoming CRT's attention-demanding and fastest-paced version, Series 7 is overdue for service in the event.
Another possibility being discussed among The Master's family is a new option: Including The Master in game line-ups. This option would provide an opportunity for CRT's many players to face off with CRT's creator directly, and perhaps add an interesting new dimension to a veteran's experience. In this event, Ellen would fill in on the Master's duties. The Master's daughters Amber and Shanna hosting games was also a suggested possibility. A stipulation would be the request must be made at the time the game is reserved, allowing time to verify availability of and scheduling a host. More information concerning this option will be made available in the future.
Extending the season by including part of October is an option that has been tossed around, but nothing concrete has been proposed at this time. Such an extension may occur if foreseen schedule implications justify the action. An average of around 66 dates is the target for a given season. A significant reduction in that number due to scheduling concerns may imply an extension. Increasing the number of dates is not being considered at this time. Alert CRT players monitor the web site regularly during the off season to stay abreast of any changes concerning the upcoming season.
Planning of CRT's 22nd season is subject to extenuating circumstances. CRT's operations are dependent on the health and availability of its hosts, the continued good health of the hosts' families, and the continued blessing of living in a country free of natural and man-made disasters, invasions and terrorist activities, the threat of war, and an aging infrastructure that continues to miraculously operate despite its antiquated condition. Amazingly, this ailing country has been spared a major catastrophe. By the grace of God, CRT will triumphantly complete its 21st season and sail gallantly forward into Season 22!
*A difference of two or more players, added or exchanged, constitutes a different specific group.

CRT MUSIC LOVERS:
Torah Card spaces have been added to Series 11. When a player lands on this space, they may draw a Torah Card either from the deck or an opponent's hand. There are abundant opportunities to execute this new feature, and in addition more opportunities to acquire Torah Cards have been added to the adventures as well as when identities are changed. This should increase the possibility of single-player wins via the assembly of the Bible. The Master noticed some glitches in the Torah Card aspect of the game and this new feature should eradicate those obstacles. An email has been issued to CRT players in the hope a forthcoming game on the rapidly shrinking schedule can be changed to Series 11 to test this new feature, as well as conduct further testing on the transportation card features. Players interested in assisting in the testing of these features may contact The Master to make arrangements. Thanks in advance!
