Sci-Fi and Fantasy Contest Climaxes! by Dukasaur
On November 15th
DJ Teflon and sonicsteve came up with the idea of holding a contest for Tournament Organisers to produce creative new Sci-Fi/Fantasy tournaments. It amazes me that it was only six weeks ago, seems like it was a lot longer. Seven organisers rose to the challenge: fairman, SirSebstar, Fuzzy316, eagleblade, lostatlimbo, betiko and DoomYoshi. I had the honour and thrill of being one of the contest judges, and I can tell you that there are some pretty impressive efforts in the bunch! Only ten points separated the first-place entry from the fourth-place entry: a very close race indeed! The four top-scoring tournaments have now been posted for sign-ups, and the top top three will receive GA medals when their tournaments wind up. At the very top, with a composite score of 102.5, is Race to the Future, 2112 AD by lostatlimbo. A very innovative blend of the historical and the futuristic, Race to the Future pits the players as time travellers forced to travel back through time to fight their way "home" to the future. In second place, with a composite score of 100.5, was Fuzzy316's effort, The Dark Wizard Conqclu. This one is a might and magic style tournament, which will take you through medieval-themed maps like Castle Lands and Siege. In third place, with a composite score of 97.5, is DoomYoshi's MtG: Shards of Alara, based on the Magic: the Gathering expansion pack of the same name. In this one, you choose your own maps. The game settings are derived by the characteristics of your chosen shard. The above three organisers will recieve GA medals (assuming that they successfully complete their tourneys) but the fourth place winner also is very worthy of mention. (Did I mention the contest was very close?) Betiko's entry, Drug Wars 2040, pits the Cops versus the Drug Lords in a war for control of a dystopic North America. I very strongly suggest you check out all four tournaments. Even if you end up not joining, some of the graphics are absolutely beautiful to look at! But, by all means, do sign up! My congratulations to the three winners, kudos to all four entrants, and a special thanks to DJ Teflon and sonicsteve for allowing me to be a judge and participate in this excellent contest!
