/me still thinks there needs to be a "male gigolo" award; its the only one i have a chance of winning.................

mazza contemplates how easy he really has become.........



Also, on a "serious" note, there was meant to be a Dark Ages tourney this yr, but unfortunately, due to family issues, Snyper-pie had to fold it; perhaps we could have a dark Ages Day as one of the Luxtober competitions.........

Also, we did have a US map competition; why not this yr, have a "country" competition- there surely are enough maps that show the different countries in which we live in, we could have a random country competition, where each game, there is a different country eg, 1st game, Israel, 2nd game Lebanon, 3rd game, Anglo-Celtic etc etc etc.......

What makes a player a rookie?

And if we're doing states, -- Then I'm going to kill you all on Hawaii :p

By "Sometime during Luxtober" does that mean you'll tell us, or we just fling in the votes when its Oct/Luxtober

Rookie means "moiz" and also "stinkerlass the Bear". I think you have to be here less than a year. I do not believe there are any other qualifications. :D

The Lux awards are about celebrating this game with medals for players achievements in it´s annual competition.

Negative awards should NOT play any part in this celebration imho.

Done.


Ok, last year I suggested that we could have a country vs country tournament (teams or individual). Or maybe country vs country vs US states since you are so frikkin many in the US.

According to Dustin these are the top 10 countries ranked by number of lux purchases:
USA
United Kingdom
Canada
Germany
Australia
France
Italy
Netherlands
Denmark
Sweden

I think it could be great fun and I nominate myself for captain of the Swedish team. :D

C-Rex predicts that Sweden will kick the Aussies out in the quarterfinals.

Lol Juveke, it is unlikely that Spain or Portugal ever made the top ten of countries who purchased Lux, or ever will.
