I'm considering running a mirror of SHAWARMA II after this tournament. I realize there is a lot of overlap with the NYU site, so I want to make sure there will be enough interest. PM me if you (or someone else on your team) wants to play, and I'll make another announcement by Friday.

This is happening. It will be free to play, and there will be a sign up sheet in the morning.

Whoops, sorry about that. Combined stats should be fixed now and no longer double counting games. Apologies for the delay.
