    Borrowing Scott Weinberg's idea, and inspired by a thread in the Music area, this is a tournament for album covers.

    1. Everyone gets one "automatic" selection, seven nominations and two seconds.

    2. No thirding.

    3. Don't post the art during the nomination process. We'll get to it during the matchups.

    Go nuts. [​IMG]

    I would like to respectfully suggest that we don't have thirding. It just makes everything take too long and makes things more confusing.

    Thirding eliminated. But everyone is getting 3 nominations for now, so (with great sadness, although I know it will be back :wink: ), I'm only listing Rain's first 3.

    As you were...
