Wow, this was a marathon tournament. Everyone was up at least until 2-3am, with people just crashing in rooms and couches, rising up the next morning at 7am to eggs and bacon and then dice, with games going by 9am. I got less than 4 hours of sleep both nights, that plus the beer and chest bumping really took it out of me.
But nonetheless, everyone I think had a good time. If there was one area of improvement, I think the moderator declared victories were unsatisfying for some. This was understandable since you’re asking someone to declare a winner based on an arbitrary stopping point in the game. Many of the games the moderators had to call were close enough that while you could still see one side was winning, there was a chance the other side could rally. I don’t like tourney rules, but maybe now I see value. Live and learn.
Regardless, there was definitely a lot of KILL KILL KILLING! Maybe next year I will be out from under my “family contribution time” deficit that I can host this thing again! As is, no one punched a hole in the wall, or threw a chair through any windows so I am probably good getting the house again!!
Peace!.. er, wait, WAR!
