The First Yucatan MediOcrelympic Tournament Games and Results.
- Alicia Smith(leece)Australia
Western AustraliaMaybe we can grab a game sometime?
First touted as ***The First-Ever Non-Official Yucata Olympics of Mediocre Gamers*** jamied envisioned a tournament appealing to the common players, the alro-rans and the never-really-botherers.
By stipulating that only those with True Skill of 1100 or less in any given event could participate jamie soon was surprised to have people rallying to his cause, because the quantity of mediocre players had a quality all its own.
Yucata member leeece (leece on bgg) took up the role of spokesperson for the tournament and it seems to be widely believed that her humorous banter led to a lot of people saying, huh, might look into that. It was during one of these humorous tirades in the yucata chat that leeece coined the phrase MediOcrelympics as she was tired of typing out the entire thing. On seeing this jamied grabbed the term with glee. zzrxes created a special Mediocrlympics emoji and helped a great deal with the nuts and bolts of tournament organisation, and Putzibram came on as another commentator.
Entries flooded in! jamied opened the tournament here http://www.yucata.de/en/Forum?ForumID=11&postid=115137 on 13th of January 2018.
