Merry Xmas from the Freestyle Team!

This edition we have a review of the Annual Risk Classic (better late than never!) by TheSaxLad and advice from deathcomesrippin as to how to deal when faced in battle against those tough talking high rankers. I also had a conversation with the turtle himself in celebration of the website's 5th birthday! Discover below what actually was going on whilst Lack was at McGill! Enjoy :)

Hola amigos:

Welcome to the Holiday issue of the War Games. This is my first appearance as Tournament Executive and I want to thanks the whole ConquerClub Dispatch Team for the opportunity. On the other side, this is Amazzony's last issue! She will take a break for a while, but hopefully, we can have her back in the near future. Good luck ZZ, and thanks for all your help, time and dedication!

I wish all of you a wonderful Holiday Season (Christmas, Hanukkah, Navidad!) and a great new year, and lets hope Santa can bring us a better dice for 2011. :lol:

What a year the clans have had - quite a coming of age. Who would have thought clan wars would have become a spectator sport the way they have? Challenge threads have been full of excitement (and sometimes that excitement has become plain nastiness), and key games have been filled with chat from watchers dropping in. The Conqueror's Cup has added a whole new level of intensity to the scene. Several clans have established their right to be counted among the elite, a host of new clans have emerged to challenge them. More clan games have been played than ever before. The clan directors brought us game creation privileges. And to cap it all off, we have -

The clan medal!
jpcloet has been working on this for a long time and it arrives as a Christmas present, bringing joy to the heart of many a committed clannie. It's awarded to any player who wins a small (or large) number of games in a challenge win. jp has worked through all the existing clan wars and handed out medals to everyone who qualifies (barring a few where there are troubles tracking down the games). The nice 11 medals won symbol you see above is taken from the profile of the early leader in the medals stakes, blitzaholic - players from other clans such as TOFU and Legion are not far behind. It seems this is a valued and sought after medal. And no surprise. What's better than having a gang of mates and getting together with them to conquer the world?

An excellent issue of the newsletter, especially the interview with Lack. Love the Swedish Chef reference
Important Tournament Notice

The data for ALL of my tournaments has potentially been lost. I am working to recover it but as I am away on business all of this week, there will be some delay. Sincere apologies.

Very good issue - congrats all round. I never thought I would, but I actually ended-up reading the whole thing (that's a first!).
