(Felixís money guessed it)
Welcome to the seventh annual Alphabetolympics tournament! For those of you who donít know about it this is held every fall and usually is the largest single round tournament on the site, with up to 27 people competing.

So how do you enter and what is it all about? Well pick a number in this topic from 1-27 and post it in this topic. You can have any number that isnít taken already by someone else. Iíll try to update this list often but unfortunately canít sit in front of my computer all day so donít rely on it. Once every spot is filled (or itís pretty close, weíll see) everyone will be assigned a letter from A-Z or #. Now you must review a game that begins with whatever you get. It could be any game from any genre as long as it begins with that letter. So if your letter is ĎMí you can review Mega Man or Metal Gear Solid and canít review Viewtiful Joe or Deus Ex (hopefully someone gets that reference).

Finally weíll need three judges for this. Anyone who is interested in that let me know.

IMPORTANT!!! READ BEFORE ENTERING:
Please only enter if you are willing to get ANY letter. We donít know what you are going to get. It could be your dream letter or it could be Y or Q or #. Therefore you might need to resort to ROMs. If youíre not willing to download ROMs and donít own at least a game youíre willing to review for every letter itís probably not smart to enter. Obviously some are going to drop out, but we donít want half attendance because everyone with a less than perfect letter quits. So only enter if youíre open to every letter and can make a deadline that will most likely be in the second half of November.

There will be no trading letters after the deadline. In previous years it got out of hand and kind of defeats the purpose of the whole thing. Iím undecided about allowing people to pick up dropoutís letters but donít count on it.

Now pick away!
If there isnít a name next to the spot you can take it by posting what number you want in this topic.

Also I apologize for the tardiness and making people wait, I had to run out and couldn't make it back in time.

I don't know. This one actually requires one to write a new review.

I haven't done complex numbers since high school so I'm relying on Maple for this one.

The number I claim is 1 (one). I will continue to claim it until it sticks.

This is usually the only contest I end up partaking in every year, but since I was forced against my will to write two reviews for the last contest, I was gonna skip this.

BUT SUDDENLY, I WAS BLACKMAILED. 4.

As I am unwilling to leave matters of such importance to the Random Number Gods, I shall use a simple mathematic equation to determine my spot.

We'll start with the number of reviews I've submitted: 13. Then we take the median of hits for each reviews, which happens to be 390, divide that by the number of times our beloved webmaster has messed up the site this month(10), and add it. Now we subtract the number of people who think genj is funny(3) multiply the number of times EmP would normally have to nag me to join(42), and divide by the number of days remaining in lasthero's jail sentence(686).

That gives us 3. I'll take that one, please.
