Thanks everyone for coming out to the tournament yesterday. We had a few new players this time - hopefully the word is spreading. We've probably had around 20 different players come out over that past few months, so please keep telling anyone you think may be interested.

Will McKinney beat Jamie Weber in a very close finals to win this tournament. David Lesko came in third. Will put up a 3+ billion game of DM during qualifying, and Jamie put up a 2+ billion game. Not bad for Game Galaxy just getting the machine. It plays like a dream.

Here's a link to the results. Game details are on the second page of the spreadsheet.

Thanks to all for their suggestions about the league. The current scoring format that we've been using seems to be a hit, so we'll keep that for the foreseeable future. I'll revise the rules to clarify a few things but I think it's been running well so far. Thanks to all of you for taking it easy on me!

The next tournament will be on June 1st at 2:00 pm. When I pick the games, I try to get a diverse group; usually a DE, a newer Stern, etc. With the hopeful arrival of Metallica soon, I'm going with this theme (Games subject to change).

Guns n Roses
Tommy (may sub with Getaway if the trough issues persist)

Thanks again everyone - see you on the 1st (if not before when Metallica comes in!)
