As one of the organizers I am very happy that we hit 74 players.
It is extra nice that the last player was eddiemo0915, we discussed admitting him to the tournament because he is clearly experienced enough to use the www.stratego.com interface , but he did not have the 250 ranking yet on Thursday.
However he managed to hit 256 before the end of the signup period and signed himself up with his forum account like all other admitted players. A warm welcome to him from me in his first WCO and as the golden player!
If you want to put a smile on his face and reward his effort to get his rating up in time, please like this post. I am pretty sure he will read it.
