Is this Jon Turner-approved?

^And you can shut the hell up any time, poser. If you're so good, you should come to our nightly games and test your skill.

considering last time i only lost to ONE person, and came in second, I really don't think I'm a poser.... but hey, I'd be happy to play in your home games sometime.... and not in anyway did i mean to be cocky... just a little jib and jab. jon knows that i'm a good guy rather than an ass.

Well, if this is Turner-approved, I guess I can wake up in time for it. You gonna be there, Turner?

And if dyson is Turner-approved, I guess I take my comment back. Hard to separate the posers from the real-deal on a message board. Guess we'll see how it all turns out tomorrow night. Hopefully, I'll be knocked out of the tournament before 9:30, so I can go catch some improv at King's Barcade.

Is it until somebody just wins a table or do they have a final table with all of the winners?
What were some of the prizes/gift certificates for in the past?
Should we just show up at 7, or earlier to register, or can we buy in late?

if only 1st, 2nd, and 3rd get prizes, i guess you have to go to a final table

i was also wondering what the prizes were or how much $ the winners get

and if i need to register early

i suppose i'll just show up at 7
