With WWE RAW DEAL KING OF THE RING coming up in just over a month, we're firing up pickem!

It's going to be a little different this time. All you have to do is pick the winner. That's it. But to give all the options a fair shot, we're going to break it down this way:

Here's the known options of players who will be there based on the most current information I have:

Brian Sykes
Ben Hosp
Sandy Barnabas
Phil Schrader
John Corbett
Brandy Corbett
Austin Chandler
Any Kid
Any Raw Deal Rando

Current kid count is sitting at ~6
Current rando count is sitting at 0 for the moment, but the word is starting to get out, so I'd be *very* surprised if nobody showed up.

For purposes of this contest, a "Raw Deal Rando" is any player who's not a kid who is also not already in the TrekCC Tournament System.

I'll be updating the attendee list as more people make their intentions known.

In the meantime... did I say there were PRIZES? Why, yes, yes I did!

Anyone who picks 2 out of 3 winners correctly (1e, 2e, Raw Deal Main Event) gets a $25 travel voucher good at any future Tower of Commerce Event. And because we want to generate as much interest as possible, the voucher is FULLY TRANSFERABLE if you have friends or family going to an event that you can't make.

Now, if somebody has the crystal ball and they can pick ALL THREE main event winners, they get the Trifecta Prize: A $100 Travel Voucher for a future ToC event, ALSO Fully Transferable.

And while there's no cost to enter this contest (because gambling laws are a thing), we do limit entries to one per person, though you can change your picks anytime up until 11AM Central Time the day of the event (or 1 Hour before kickoff). Any new picks or changes made after that time will not be accepted.

So that's it. Easy, right? Good luck! :cheersL:

I'm feeling pretty good about my main event deck. While there's any number of crazy things that could happen, I think I have a real shot here.

That said, I'm taking the kid field. I know John has cooked up some quality stuff for his boys, and my older son's deck beat me in playtesting last time, so who knows what might happen? Given the sheer amount of crazy, I want a pick with multiple outs, even if that means I pick against myself.

Guess I should have had more confidence in myself. I won the bracket, giving @Keiimaster and @Iron Prime a point in the Pickem contest. The 1e event is tonight. Stay tuned!
