Tom Stokes - NJ

no screams can be heard in space ...

Twenty antagonists fight for the surrounding systems. Aliens from all reaches of the universe use their powers to overthrow one another. The Philanthropist "handed" his victory to himself on several occasions. The horrid Amoeba oozed his way to the destruction of his foes. Then there is the sorcerer who cast his spells upon the Mind. Many great wars were waged during this six hour siege.

Though the number of players was down from last year, I think all agree that this was by far a better format. Congratulations to our two-time winner. Tom Stokes took top honors once again. He topped the field with a score of 50.9. Tim Swartz came in second , 47.7 and tTrevor Bender on Tim's tail with a 45.8 took third.

Thank you all for participating in this years event. I got a lot of useful input from the players and I am in the midst of going through it all for new and better changes to make this event more interesting to all players. Thanks also to both my Co-GM's , Ray Dion and Tim Swartz for their help this year.
