July 2004
This tournament was organized by JM Molins aka slowdean, very shortly after LOA was added to Boardspace. 
December 2004
the first annual Year-end tournament at  Play starts Dec 1.  Sign up now.

The Abstract Games Marathon.  A giant  email tournament, covering a dozen or more abstract games, but it's not required to play all the games.  The LOA section of this tournament came up at about the same time as the traditional email tournament, so I decided to support the new kid on the block by encouraging eveyone who would have played in my tournament to play in this one instead.   So far it looks promising.
Started September 18, 2004
This tournament has 54 players, easily the largest LOA tournament ever!  The tournament is organized in sections of 5 players each in the first round. Game tables and results are available here

The Annual Email Tournament starts late in the year and completes sometime early the next year.  Games from the tournament are collected into archives, attached to the LOA applet for easy study.
