Case will almost certainly be there with a team and 3 buzzers. I'll be able to nail down specifics once the semester starts.

I'm trying to see if UIC can bring a team to this. I have to nail down specifics but if we do we should have 1 team, 1 buzzer and 1 travel discount.

It is quite possible that Penn State will be attending; I can confirm or deny this rumor within a week, depending on how or first meeting and finances go. We would have 2-3 teams, hopefully.

We're still looking for hotel rooms, but we have two drivers lined up so we'll be able to bring 3 teams, 2 buzzers, and one moderator. And 100% awesome. Oh, and we're like 330 miles away or so.

This is just a friendly reminder that to officially register for this tournament, you need to email me at [redacted]. Also, the tournament will indeed be held at the Central Classrooms building. The pre-tournament meeting will be held in Hitchcock Hall Room 131, which is nearby. Both buildings can be found using OSU's campus map:

We aren't entirely sure whether this is happening or not yet. We hope to have an official Canada mirror announced soon.

EDIT: To clarify, all Canadian schools interested in hosting MAGNI between October 15th and October 29th should still email Auroni and I as soon as possible.

EDIT2: We can now confirm that that a McMaster mirror is indeed happening on October 29th. Make your travel decisions however you wish.

Kenyon College intends to bring 2 teams.
We have one working buzzer system.
We also will bring one moderator (contingent on student moderators being allowed).

We intend on formally registering once funding is secured.

That being said, when is the registration deadline?

I will most likely close registration the Thursday before the tournament, October 20. Registration will close prior to this if the tournament field reaches 28 teams, as any more would exceed the amount of rooms that have been reserved for the tournament.

There's a very good chance that I'll come to play solo since the rest of my team is off for fall break.

I could also team up with someone if you guys (or the editors) are allowing open teams.

No problem, Auroni.

Andy, I'm about 99% sure I'll be there. I just have to clear it with Steve since I'll be using club funds.

Excellent, Matt! We look forward to seeing you on the 22nd!

Auroni, are there any guidelines for discounts for people playing solo, or is that left to our own discretion?

Just a reminder that to be registered for this tournament, I will need to have received an email by the time I check tomorrow morning. Tomorrow I will also send out an email outlining the final details for the tournament and will post all of the same information here, as well.

I have had a few schools ask me about this, so I figured I'd address it here. The travel discount will be given once for a school, not each individual team that a school might be bringing. Hope that clarifies any confusion.

I would first like to thank all of you for planning to attend tomorrow's mirror of MAGNI at Ohio State. Registration for the tournament will begin tomorrow at 8:15 in Hitchcock Hall Room 131 and will run until 8:45. Hitchcock can be found on this map: http://www.osu.edu/map/building.php?building=274. There has been construction on Woodruff Ave. on non-football Saturdays, and there is a chance that this road might be closed, so take this into consideration.

The best option for parking will be the Tuttle Park Place Parking Garage, which can be found here: http://www.osu.edu/map/building.php?building=088. Parking is also available slightly further away on Lane Ave. or near the Ohio Union.

As for the tournament itself, once the registration has been completed, there will be a very brief meeting to discuss rules and format. From there, teams will go to the Central Classrooms building, which is a short walk from Hitchcock, where we hope to begin play by 9. The field is at 18 teams, and we will be doing 3 brackets of 6 teams,then a rebracket into 3 brackets of 6 teams, for a total of 10 matches before finals, if necessary.

We plan to have about an hour break for lunch after Round 5. There are plenty of tasty options on High St., which is about a ten minute walk due east of Central Classrooms.

If anyone has any further questions regarding the details of the tournament, or if I have left out something crucial, feel free to email me, or call me at [REDACTED].

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you tomorrow!

After losing the first game of an advantaged final, Michigan A came back to defeat Chicago A and win the OSU MAGNI mirror. Michigan B, Chicago B, Carnegie Mellon/Trevor and Northwestern A were also in the top bracket.

Stats forthcoming soon, I'm sure.
