Geekdom Madness 2016 - The Real Game: Return of Wizard's Duel/Theory or Practice

Welcome to Geekdom Madness 2016: The Real Game. Our first matches: Slimy Mudholes and Booksmarts vs Streetsmarts.

Real Game Delay

Just a quick announcement that the next round of Geekdom Madness will be delayed for several hours today, as the time I had scheduled to finish setting it up turned out to be needed elsewhere. It should be available by late afternoon/early evening at the latest. Thank you for your patience.

GM16: Miscellaneous Victors

One Final Save.

The Victors for the eighth and final round of the preliminaries are...

Katniss Everdeen
"Thank you for your consideration."


Rose Tyler
"So history’s happening and we’re stuck here."

Match 1 was a flawless victory, with the Girl on Fire nabbing 100% of the matches 8 votes. Match 2 was in Rose's favor until a literal last-minute vote tied it up. I declared Rose the Victor because of her weeklong lead, but Austin Powers will be saved from total elimination due to the tie.

However, we must still hang our heads as Geekdom Madness bids a final farewell to Count Dracula ("There are far worse things awaiting a man than death."). With the preliminaries over, the contest continues as normal, and those who've made it this far are exempt from Total Elimination.

Here's the breakdown. The Real Game begins tomorrow!

Our Match 1 Victor inspired the use of the word "Victor" in this contest.

GM16: Worst Swordsmen/Battle Amongst the Stars Redux Victors

No contest.

The Victors for the seventh round of the preliminaries are...

Captain Jack Sparrow
"You will always remember this as the day you almost caught...Captain Jack Sparrow!"


"Yoko to bantha poodoo, hehehehe..."

The story is the same for both matches: Out of a total of 7 votes, Captain Jack Sparrow and Sebulba received 6 votes each (85%), nearly flawless.

Now, let's hang our heads as Geekdom Madness bids a final farewell to The Black Knight ("COME BACK HERE AND TAKE WHAT'S COMING TO YOU! I'll BITE YER LEGS OFF!") and Lt. Commander Data ("There are still many human emotions I do not fully comprehend - anger, hatred, revenge...")

Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

The Trekkers must be furious.

A True Test of CHARActer

“Brave ones, foolish ones - Both walk not the middle road.”

Warning: Severe spoilers for “Undertale” ahead. Only continue if you have already finished the game, or have no intention of playing it (and even then I recommend at least giving it a chance first).
