Re: Interest check: Chicagoland tournament, 4/30 or 5/21

Could someone mirror a trash tournament or a hybrid tournament like BLASTOISE? I'd definitely be interested in playing that and is there a chance of trash4strophe happening? Either date works for me

Re: NIU Huskie Bowl 29 Jan 2011

I just wanted to register my disappointment that the set was changed without notice after teams had already registered. Had I know that this tournament was to be played on a set that contains several novice-level packets, I would have considered not registering. I have no interest in playing any nov...

1. Auburn is obviously the best team in the state. Unless I'm forgetting something, they've won every tournament they've entered, including ones where they were not at full strength. When their starters are there, they cover everything with depth, save music, perhaps. Although they'll likely be beat...

This is all awesome, and once again reinforces my belief that no regular difficult tournament can be "too easy" as long as the questions are written well. I'm really looking forward to this. I have to disagree with this. In this set, easiness translated into a lot of guessable answer lines, ones wh...
