After the tournament, we'll be running Words and Objects, written by James Malouf and myself with help from Will Nediger. Due to the incomplete nature of the set (with only 3 packets fully written as of now), we're be using this as an initial playtesting as much as the first official mirror. It'll be $5 to play. Depending on interest in the event, the format will either be 1) a shoot-out or 2) two games in separate seeded pools --> rebracket for a finals / consolation match.
