Wil, I don't read your blog since Thursday, and this is how I find out I missed the Tourney? WE NEED MORE OF THESE!!!!! How many people showed up and who won?

I'd like to argue with the thought that it always takes a "certain discipline" to choose to read a book. As a Sabbath-Observant Jew, my entertainment options are limited from Friday sundown until Saturday sundown (no TV, no movies, no driving... To quote Walter Sobchak, "Saturday, is Shabbos, the Jewish day of rest. That means that I don't work, I don't get in a car, I don't fucking ride in a car, I don't pick up the phone, I don't turn on the oven, and I sure as shit don't fucking roll! Shomer shabbos!"). Conversation, playing board games, and most of all, reading books, become our chief entertainment options on the sabbath. I love reading and do it more often than just on shabbos, but the fact that I have a day where reading is at the forefront of my choices makes it that much easier to get into a good book. Wow, all of that just to get in a quote from The Big Lebowski. :-)

BRING BACK THE WWdN TOURNEYS!!!!! please... I have been missing the WWdN tourneys since they went away... I tried the Monkey Tourney once but the showing wasn't what it was in the days of the Wheaties. And if it is too hard to do it weekly, I'm sure that all of the old regulars would be fine with a monthly version. Let us know what happens. Thanks Wil.

Wil, I've enjoyed playing in your tournaments, the home game feel is so rare in online games these days. I'll really miss that. I have one question though. When you say this is the final "official" tourney, does that mean that you'll still ocassionally be organizing UNofficial tourneys? That would be great if you could.
