Point Grabbers XI: The Return
Well, it's true, I couldn't give it up. With my new position here at CC I'm going to need a simple, fun, well-liked franchise to run that doesn't take a lot of my time if I'm going to stay in the tournament organizing business. How lucky for me that I already have one developed! This is the return of Point Grabbers, but it marks new ground. Future editions will occasionally feature new things like fog of war, or a particular map theme of some sort. We'll see where things go.

In the end, you don’t have much to lose by joining this tournament. At worst you lose 40-50 points (if you have an extremely high rank), and at best you break even if you win 1 or 2 games. Some players have been known to walk away from this tournament with a 100 point net gain. It’s definitely worth the risk, I promise.
Players will be seeded 1 through 16 by their score and then the highest score plays the lowest, etc.
So, join up now for a fast, furious, exciting time! Only the first 16 get in!!!Players:
