Early Wednesday morning (3 AM) my friends and I (all eight of us) headed out for Indianapolis, only to arrive 12 hours later. We nabbed badges for those that forgot to preorder and settled into our hotel for a night of pre-gaming er… gaming.

Welcome back riders! Let me apologize for the snail’s pace that these articles now appear, but there are good reasons. First, it’s mostly my playgroup that now does these (it appears people still read them, but are not as eager to volunteer for the matchups). Also, this semester I’m finishing my Masters Program in education. So I can rarely squeeze in games! But that doesn’t mean my enthusiasm is dwindling in the least. This tournament will go on, even if it takes the rest of my life. But, for my sanity, please volunteer for matchups so that it does not take that long! We’ve got some tasty treats ahead. Read on!
Alright, enough waiting for people to make their picks, let’s air this thing out! Marvel Round 2 has begun, and some of the matches below WILL shake the foundations of general Vs. assumptions! Here’s the link to the new Marvel Bracket updated after round 1 results have been inputed. If you haven’t made picks for this round yet, go here, but you obviously can’t get points on the four matches below, but I’ll honor your other twelve picks!
Finally, let me apologize for slowing down. I’m still plucking away, but I put in 80 hours per week doing my summer job. That leaves only an hour or less a day at my computer to type and edit posts. That being said, I am committed to finishing, so don’t worry! READ MORE »
It’s time for our monthly update of the 100 Ideas! These four matches are pretty exciting and include one match that did not go as expected at all (*cough*Qward*cough*). Part 3 of 4 is done for DC Round 2. That means, with only one more aricle to go, it’s probably time to start up the betting pool again. I’ll go figure out who’s playing who in Marvel Round 2, just keep your eyes peeled on the forums for betting thread and the volunteer thread. Lord knows we need volunteers!
Also, if you haven’t noticed, March Madness Halfsies has just started and is a wonderful way to get your 30 card fix between the long dry boughts of 100 Ideas updates. Kudos to team TAWC for taking the initiative on that one!
Without further ado, Enjoy! READ MORE »
Alright guys, I know a month is a long time to wait between updates, but we haven’t really figured out a way to make it go faster yet (any ideas would be appreciated). Here’s part 2 of DC Round 2. A couple of shockers in this article. I think there might be an upset or two on the leaderboard! Also, I’m sorry to post this so quickly after a Council Update. I personally don’t like to slide new content down so quickly, but I feel like the wait for this thing has been long enough. So, without further ado… READ MORE »
Thank Granny Goodness that DCF has been keeping us all distracted lately. It’s my hopes that subsequently no one has noticed how long it’s been since we’ve had a 100 Ideas update! But here it is. Five more matches to wet your lips over. This means there are five more matches to go in Round 1. I for one am getting pretty excited to start Round 2 (but that’s largely because I’m a DC man and am going through withdrawals!).

Alright friends and family, it’s time to switch to the South side of things (all the SoCal members here tell me that this is the best side to be on!). I know this was posted quickly considering the long wait for the end of the North Bracket, but I can’t help but gush it all out when I’m holding onto so much Vs. fun! Hopefully you’ve made your picks by now, and hopefully you picked right, let’s find out with this first installment.
The end of the North Bracket is finally at hand. Here are the final five (not to be confused with the Fearsome Five) matchups. I’m sorry for the delay, but there were a lot of legitamate reasons; computers were fried, intestines were removed, Canadian holidays were observed; it was CHAOS these past couple of months! But the result is as entertaining as always so grab your bucket of popcorn, heavy on the butter, and read.
DC Round 1 was a smashing success. Many people played, only one is in the lead. Doomstat managed to nail all 8 matchups, so he better be looking over his shoulder this round as he has 50 other competitors looking to overtake him.
We’re on to the Marvel side of things now. This first installation of the Marvel bracket will only reveal 4 of the 14 first round matches. Look for the next two thirds in the upcoming weeks.
