Live from the Yu-Gi-Oh! Tournament

I am here at the biggest nerd fest ever. This tournament makes Star Trek conventions look mainstream. Players range in age from 5 to 50. There are goth kids, punk kids, normal kids, heavy metal kids and some kids I just can't figure out! Heh. Not as many kids in costume as I expected but what they lack in numbers they make up for in nerdliness.

The tournament has been delayed a bit because 720 participants signed up. About twice as much as they were expecting and a North American Record for Yu-Gi-Oh!

The format is 10 rounds of Swiss Tournament at 40 minutes a round. Do the math. If we stay for the whole thing it will be near 7 hours. Good thing I brought my laptop and a whole stack of movies.

God I'm bored.
