Greetings YPS Players -

Season 1 is very close to its conclusion! To celebrate, I would like to unveil a special new tournament called the Potpourri Invitational. In this event, participants will play one 4p game in each of the games represented in YPS Season 1. To refresh your memory, these include:

1.00 - Carcassonne
1.01 - Maori
1.02 - Vikings
1.03 - Thurn and Taxis
1.04 - St. Petersburg
1.05 - Oregon
1.06 - Pompeii
1.07 - Egizia
1.08 - Thunderstone
1.09 - Finca
1.10 - Hanging Gardens
1.11 - Loyang
1.12 - Stone Age
1.13 - Rattus
1.14 - Two by Two

Several notes:
a) If you sign up, you must play every game. That's part of the fun!

b) Due to the nature of pairings I have in mind, we need to have exactly 16 or exactly 28 players for this one. Everyone is welcome to sign up by posting below, but the following players will have priority:

i) Season 1 Champions
ii) Players with more Season 1 entries will have priority over those with fewer entries

c) All 15 games will play at once. Although these are all in different games, it will be a little bump to your current total. Keep that in mind!

d) If you like the idea of this event but are worried you won't get a spot, don't worry. We'll have similar events as Season 2 and Season 3 eventually wrap up.

This should hopefully be a pretty fast and fun event. Join us if you like!

I'll try to learn/play the ones I don't know, but bump me if you need the space.

Not sure if I even knew about YPS in season 1, let alone participated, but I would love to join in if there is space.

Potpourri isn't my favorite thing in the world, but with this use of the word, my appreciation waxes!

I will be happy to join, but am also happy to step aside if there isn't enough room.

I can't block that much time. Sounds like a lot of fun, and I'll do my part to help. I can teach all of these games, and most of them I'm even pretty good at.

If you want to learn anything on the list, please send me a GEEKMAIL [it has to be a geekmail so I have a timestamp; a Yucata invite doesn't carry a timestamp that is visible to the public] with your Yucata name and what you want to learn. I'll take the first 2 or 3 at a time, and more as I finish other teaching games. For teaching purposes, I want to stick to 2p because it's easier to find 10-15 minutes where we can both be on and I can run through some things with you in chat. I'll send you an invite; you probably want to wait to accept the invite until I'm online on Yucata (which happens a lot, unless I'm sleeping or travelling).

Current notes:
Not accepting invites for St Pete
Not very good at Maori; I can teach rules but not strategy

Teaching larger groups:
If you self-organize a larger group and commit to being online together some evening (M, W, F this week) for a 30-minute period starting between 7p and 9:30p US Eastern this week, I'll do a special session for you all, I'll even get on Skype if you want. Obviously these are limited.

Looking good for a possible 28 entries so far! Also, I should have mentioned that for players who missed Season 1 altogether, priority will just be given based on order of entry/posting. Hopefully the numbers will work out well and everyone or almost everyone who wants to play will have a chance.

All right, we already have more than 28 players, so I'll leave sign-ups open for another couple of days, and then figure out who is in and get it started!

Upon reflection, I am going to drop - too many games to learn (6) and too many total games (50+) at one time. Have fun!
