    Hey guys,

    With the Pokegym much larger than it used to be, I figured that I might revive an old classic from a couple years ago: Iron Chef (Pokemon edition).

    What is Iron Chef?

    It's a semi-parody of the classic TV cooking show. The catch, though, is that instead of using surprise food ingredients, the contestants make decks out of selected card "ingredients." Usually I hosted these as single-elimination tournaments, rather than as staggered individual competitions.

    Why is this something worth considering?

    Simple: Pokegym loved Iron Chef! It gave players an opportunity to be creative during the off season, and was an opportunity to win some neat prizes.

    Why do I want to bring this back?

    Because I enjoyed judging these (hence the title). I have always enjoyed deck theory and deck tinkering much more than actual playing, so seeing what other people experiment with is a pleasure.

    So...Now that the uninitiated know a little about this, and now that those who previously competed remember...Who would like to compete in one of these competitions?

    If there's enough interest, I fully intend to host one of these. Just let me know in this topic.

    I would not compete, as I can't build decks to save my life - or win a game. But, I did enjoy reading the topics / posts / and the ideas that people came up with were alot of fun.

    I vote to bring it back.

    I "might" have a guest judge once in a blue moon, but I by and large intend to judge these on my own. Coordinating efforts just complicates things/lengthens the contest as a whole.

    Also, don't be expecting the masterpiece writeups of the olden days! I'll only give each entry about a sentence or two,

    Obviously, more info will come if I decide to do this...I'm liking the very quick feedback, though.

    I iz SO into this.

    Loved it the last time, would love to compete in it again. Hope this comes through!

    EDIT: If 20 positive posts in 12 hours isn't enough to convince you start this up again, I dunno what would be. Looking forward to this!
