Spinning around like a ball
Never to unwind.

The Final Four of the EBPL tournament: Stephen (holding his daughter), Aaron W., Zoe, and Rich.
In 2 weeks we will start the Spring 2012 season; everyone will be back at zero points and will have to work their way up again. So in a few months we will see who the next final four will be when we have our Spring 2012 tournament!
This week we had 20 people, so 5 teams were formed and everyone played the same set of 4 games. This was the last week of standard League play for the Winter 2012 season, so points were especially crucial for everyone before our end-of-season tournament next week. Bonus points were earned by David, Kevin R., Zoe, and Jim for earning the top scores for the night.
This week we had 21 people, including 3 newcomers. 6 teams were formed with 3 teams on 1 set of games, and the other 3 teams on another set of games. Since more games were in the lineup, more bonus points were awarded. Bonus points were earned by Jay, Kevin R., Jim, Erica, David, Stephen, Keith, and Jesse.
This week we had 15 people show up, so only 4 teams were formed; furthermore, the 4th team didn't even have a full 4 players. Normally we have at least 5 teams on average, so this was a bit of a surprise to everyone. Of course since there were only 4 teams, everyone played the same set of games: Roller Coaster Tycoon, Addams Family, Whirlwind, and The Shadow. Bonus points were earned by TJ, Zoe, Josh, and Rich for earning the highest scores on those games amongst everyone who played for the evening.
Tonight we had 23 players, so 6 teams were necessary. As usual, 3 teams played 1 set of games and the other 3 teams played a different set of games. Bonus points were earned by Mitch (on 2 games), Chris H., Aaron W. (on 3 games), Zoe, and David.
This week we had 21 people show up, including 3 newcomers; 1 person was even visiting the area from Alaska! Since there were 21 people we had 6 teams, and that meant that 3 teams played 1 set of games and the other 3 teams played a different set of games. Bonus points were earned for the night by Chris H., TJ, Mitch, Jim (on 2 games), Justin, Barry, and Dan.
This week we had 22 people, so 6 teams were formed. As always, teams were formed based on each player's performance from their last 2 weeks of attendance and games were randomly selected for the teams. Bonus points were earned by Jim, Chris H., Rich, Stephen, Aaron, Mitch, Keith, and David for getting the top scores on games for the night.
This week we had 20 people playing, so there were 5 teams; therefore all teams played the same 4 games. Roller Coaster Tycoon was the new game on location, so that was automatically in the lineup for the night. Bonus points were earned by TJ, Rich, Tim, and Shawn.
This week we had 23 players, so 6 teams were necessary. Furthermore, we had 3 new games on location, so those 3 games were automatically in the lineup, with teams 1, 3, and 5 getting Cactus Canyon and NBA Fastbreak while teams 2, 4, and 6 got Fish Tales. The rest of the games were randomly selected to fill in the rest of the lineup; since we only had 4 games in the lineup last week, those 4 games were not included in the selection process for this week's games to keep things from getting stale. Bonus points were earned by Chris H. (on 2 games), Jim (on 2 games), TJ, Mitch, Dottie, and Josh.
