CV Tournaments & Events[Subject Thread] [Add Response]

Jeffery T. Kubach said this in another subject that started to go off-topic:

"I do think they should have a "decathlon" tournament with rapid and blitz chess, then 8 of the most popular/worthwhile variants.  A round robin would be cool, but it'd take a while to cover all the variants."

It got me thinking: what if we had a CV tournament/event/whatever dedicated to promoting lesser-known Chess variants? Obviously, we'd need to include variants like Bughouse to reel in people who only know about the more popular ones. I think a lot of people who enjoy Chess would love to know more about Chess variants and play the more obscure ones.

What do you guys think?
