    Please do! The more the merrier, and if we have a # of people dividable by 4, makes the tournament ladder easier to set up!

    Hey the kitten is even better. You look at it and think, 'oh he is a kitten what could he ever do?'

    and then the hissing begins, the messing all around the house in places you cant get to and then of course, the erratic behavior that you just don't understand.:D

    Ideally we get 1 - 5 more players (5 more = 12 total) to give my nice numbers to set up the ladder with. Keep in mind, start date is set for around January 5th. I will also be creating a thread specific for the Maps and Results of each round.

    Sadly for you, Alfie is not a prize in the tournament, but there will be a trophy and a monetary prize of at least $50. Not bad for just playing a video game eh?

    Poor Alfie...still stuck in Stalag Otto...

    Also bumping this thread and encouraging those of you who have the game to sign up! This tournament should be a lot of fun! All skill levels welcome. And treat yourself to a cheap and fun christmas gift if you don't have this game already!

    I'm just curious if everyone who is on the list will be able to play?

    If so we would have 7 players. I'm also curious whether someone else not on the list would like to join in.

    I'm getting beat up pretty bad from the game to be honest. This is a game which like Chess is easy to learn how to move, but difficult to master.

    To be honest I wouldn't mind if there wasn't a prize (were I good enough to win it), this should be good just for the experience.

    I'm good to play. Don't worry Paul, I'm no spring chicken at this game. Like my golfing, I'm good enough to keep up and not be a nuisance.

    Every participant should have received a PM by now. If you have not, please let me know. Also, do your best to get in touch with your partner by midweek. Everyone needs to at least be on Turn 5 by this time next week.

    Any problems, please let me know. Sommecourt and myself have already gotten our game underway.
