Free and easy online pairings through Facebook Messenger

Hi Judges!

Following on from its use at dozens of PPTQs and FNMs around the world, and successful deployments at GP Santiago, GP Manila and GP Sydney, I'm happy to release my Facebook pairings app to the wider community.

If you work at or know of a store who could benefit from online pairings, I encourage you to check this out.

The app allows players to register with their name or DCI number by sending a message to a Facebook Page, and then each round their pairings are pushed automatically to them - dramatically reducing round turnaround time and bottlenecks at pieces of paper or slowly scrolling screens.

In terms of privacy, I only store the same pieces of information that appear on a pairings printout, and only for a maximum of 24 hours.

You can find it here at https://chat.mtgpairings.info

Happy to answer any questions or queries.

Cheers,

Fry
