  The tournament starts in The tournament ends in The tournament is over; see you all next November on !


How to Play

You will need an SSH client to connect to the game servers. Linux and Mac OS typically come with this installed; Windows users can use either a free client like PuTTY or Windows Subsystem for Linux.

TNNT is hosted by hardfought.org. Connect to "nethack@hardfought.org" via SSH, and register an account. Then, you can choose any of three servers to play on:

Connect to your preferred server the same way via SSH and select the TNNT game option. That's all there is to it! If you'd like to play with the TNNT tileset, or you're at a location that blocks everything except web access, check out our hterm page, you can play this way from any of the three servers listed above.

To create, join, or manage clans, go here. Clan membership (creating and joining) will be frozen after November 10th!
