This tournament will feature a playing of a FESTIVUS side event following the conclusion of WAO on Saturday evening. In order to decide which to play, I have created a spreadsheet for voting Here! Please put your name next to the packets you are interested in, and I'll attempt to draw up an agreeable schedule.

Also, share these to your friends who will be there but don't browse hsqb!
