Our new poll is still up. This time the question asks: Which newsletters do you read?
Please stop by the Suggestion Thread and vote.


The newsletter needs new staff. If interested in a position below, please PM Gozar.

Currently Taking Signups -With Gilligan's departure, the newsletter is in need of someone to compile a weekly list of all the tournaments in signups. If you are organised, through and can keep to a schedule, this could be a position for you.

Fun Facts -Gilligan also leaves behind his Fun Facts column. Do you have some fun tournament facts you are interested in sharing? Experience with the tournament forums is a must.

Tournament ReviewsDo you have a passion for tournaments? Have lots of tournament organising experience? Have solid writing skill? Willing to offer a subjective opinion of some tournaments on occasion? Drop us a line.

Good day.

A sad day has yet again come upon us as Gilligan has retired from the newsletter. I wish he would stay but he must leave. I hope you enjoy this short interview.

Q: Hello would you answer these questions for me?
A: Sure thing. :)

Q:What made you retire?
A: Being a Tournament Director has put more duties onto me that need to get done, and along with school, work and personal life I can't juggle it all, so I had to retire from the Newsletter.

Q: Are you retiring from Conquerclub or just the mods and the news letter?
AI'll be on Conquer Club for some time to come... Only the newsletter is getting my retirement.

Q: Have they found anyone to fill your shoes?
A: Not that I know of.

Q: Thank you for your time.
A: Sure thing. :)

Here are some tournaments that noted tournament organisers are planning on running soon.

From Kinnison Five Elements Shuffle- 5 players. Home advantage across multiple 3-, 4-, and 5- player games. Each player plays 20 opponents across 5 weeks, ALL new opponents every week! Highest score of your group (whom you do NOT play against) advances to the finals, where opponents do NOT rotate.

From jpcloet Deadly Vipers Inc. - This innovative tournament will feature 8+ components that have either never been in a tournament before, or have been rarely seen. Can your skills inside and outside of the game bring you the bounty?

From keiths31:In keeping with the "Musical Chairs" theme there will be:

Ask the Nutts. . .a Q&A column (a cross between Dear Abby and Cliff Claven)
(an explanation of what it is all about)
Members, especially new members are encouraged to send in questions to "The Nutts". The three Nutts brothers will do their best to answer the questions.

R. Nutts, PHD – doctorate English, the Official Conquer Club expert
H. Nutts, MBA – looks at the business/economic/efficient side of things
A. Nutts, BS – lesser educated of the trio, gives a layman’s viewpoint

Have a question for the Nutts? PM David Hoekstra, Gozar, or click here and post in the thread.

Q: What are some of the types of cheating you see in CC and what do you think of them? -Anony-Mouse

A: R. Nutt, PhD: We’ve seen Secret Diplomacy (unspoken/unchatted teaming), Multi-ism (one person with several ID’s). but cheating in any form is despicable.

H. Nutts, MBA: There’s also Farming, the practice of targeting newbies and taking advantage of them. But remember, playing new people is not in and of itself farming. Playing less than 20% newbies is just reasonable mixture of playing others. That’s been covered in an earlier edition, I believe.

A. Nutts, BS: Well to be honest, I’ve cheated on my wife – once. . . . maybe two or three times. . .and yes, it was despicable.


negoeien did not return the interview, so we have nothing to bring you this time. Pedronicus is on deck and you can submit your questions in this thread.
