Honorable Mention:

Link to Writer: Gorgoneion

The reader probably needs to understand a bit about the game, but the letters make for a fascinating play-by-play read...good job!

1st Place, and recepient of the Mozart Prize (3 POINTS):


Link to Writer: VolcanoLotus
Link to Report: How to break the game

Sometimes it's a one-of-a-kind moment in a game that wins this prize, other times, a new gamer is born. This is yet another type of situation: a gamer who, against all odds, manages to maintain his cool despite a less-than-gracious newbie. I applaud you sir!
