Wizard Newsletter September 2009

A Mac’s Moment with Mr. Wizard.

Music is an art form whose medium is sound organized in time. Common elements of music are pitch, rhythm, dynamics, and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture. All of which I possess none of. Which is why this being a written form is so amazing. The following sing-song is taken from Scouting for Girls – “I wish I was James Bond”. Nothing like taking an obscure song that no one has heard of (Well maybe Elessar has heard of them) and making a parody out of it using a player that EVERYONE has heard (enough) of. So please click on the link below and listen to the real version of the song, get the pitch and the rhythm and the dynamics and the sonic qualities and then come back and switch lyrics to those below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRg1CwAYbfE

Unknown voice: Cargobeep – Wizard cards finest online player. Wizard status Champion. Mixing winning with overall success.

Mactonight: I’ve seen you on the site

Mr. Wizard: It’s you that I adore

Mactonight: Since I got in deep

Mr. Wizard: I wanted to be like Cargobeep

Mactonight: A bid in every hand

Mr. Wizard: A wizard up her sleeve

Mactonight: Playing against her is not enough

Mr. Wizard: For the both of us it seems.

Mactonight: So I wish I was Cargobeep

Mac and Mr. Together: Just for the day

Mactonight: Winning all my bids

Mr. Wizard: Blowing Trapizoid away.

Mactonight: So I wish I was Cargobeep

Mac and Mr. Together: Just for the day

Mr. Wizard: Smurfing all my games

Mactonight: Blowing Denny Crane away.

Musical interlude

Mr. Wizard: Hello Cargobeep

Mactonight: We’ve been expecting you

Mr. Wizard: 40 cats in your hand

Mactonight : and that chin hair that you move

Mr. Wizard: Don’t take this the wrong way

Mactonight: I know it might sound odd

Mr. Wizard: I’m the next Cargobeep

Mactonight: No I’m the right man for the job.

Mr. Wizard: You wish

Mr. Wizard: So I wish I was Cargobeep

Mac and Mr. Together: Just for the day

Mr. Wizard: Wizzing players tricks

Mactonight: Blowing Abacus away.

Mr. Wizard: So I wish I was Cargobeep

Mac and Mr. Together: Just for the day

Mr. Wizard: Winning all the my bids

Mactonight: Blowing Mr. Wizard away.

Mr. Wizard: HEY!

(Off page)

Mactonight: Get over it

Mr. Wizard: You get over it, you’re just jealous

Mactonight: I’m jealous?

Mr. Wizard: Big of you to admit it.

Mactonight: Who invited you anyway?

Mr. Wizard: Who else you know that would sing with you?

Mactonight: Don’t start on that again.

Mr. Wizard: Well it’s the truth your singing is horrible.

Mactonight: Can we get back to the song?

Mr. Wizard: Sure

Mactonight: Where were we?

(On page)

Mr. Wizard: OH, I wanted to be her?

Mactonight: No I wanted to be her

Mr. Wizard: Well you can be someone else.

Mactonight: But I wanted to be her

Mr. Wizard: No I wanted to be her

Mactonight: Well, you can be someone else.

Mr. Wizard: And I wish I was Cargobeep

Mac and Mr. Together: Just for the day

Mr. Wizard: Wizzing players tricks

Mactonight: Blowing Merlin away.

Mr. Wizard: So I wish I was Cargobeep

Mac and Mr. Together: Just for the day

Mr. Wizard: Winning all the my bids

Mactonight: Blowing Mr. Wizard away.

Mr. Wizard: HEY

Mactonight: So I wish I was Cargobeep

Mac and Mr. Together: Just for the day

Mactonight: Smurfing another game

Mr. Wizard: Blowing Mactonight away.

Mactonight: Oh, Cargocrusher and Cargowon2b and Cargocrash and Carnobeep and 40catsblondwigoneeye and maybe one day beepmac

(end)

Mr. Wizard: No Mr. Beep

Mactonight: Not a chance Carmac

Mr. Wizard: Carwiz!

Mactonight: Beeptonight

Mr. Wizard: Mr.Wizbeep

Mactonight: What are we doing? We’re pretty good players ourselves.

Mr. Wizard: Well I defiantly am.

Mactonight: We don’t have to be her?!

Mr. Wizard: I really didn’t want to in the first place.

Mactonight: All those cats

Mr. Wizard: and the chin hair

Mactonight: She is a pretty good player

Mr. Wizard: Yeah with all those cheat codes. Which I am now making available to anyone for the right price.

Mactonight: Pretty good song too.

Mr. Wizard: Better if you could sing.

Mactonight: Well maybe this song is good enough for “the B side”.

Mr. Wizard: Don’t you dare start that again

Mactonight: Well if it’s any “consolation” to you….

Mr. Wizard: Mac, stop it already. You won the B tourney too.

Mactonight: I know we suck.

Mr. Wizard: Best of the losers.

Mactonight: Thanks for having dinner with me and Heidiho after the tourney. The passing of the B tourney crown from you to me was touching!

Mr. Wizard: Until you threw it in the garbage. What’s wrong with you?

Mactonight: I have issues.

Mr. Wizard: You think?

Mactonight: Should I ask you about the 5 players on your final table?

Mr. Wizard: I think I need a drummer, a guitar player, someone on strings, a base and someone on horns.

Mactonight: I can play the cowbell. {CLICK ----------------------à http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Mie9hhQTUM }

Mr. Wizard: You should be proud.


Join me next month as I will FINALLY post “Mac clones a dog.” Unless a certain player pisses me off again, then I’ll shelve it and do something else. J


2010 Wizard Tournaments

Everything is Tentative but current thinking is as follows:

“Wizard Cards International Inc.” and “U.S. Games Systems Inc.” will send 4 Wizard Champions to the World Championships in Germany. The sponsorship will consist of airfare from the person’s domicile plus accommodation. “Amigo-Spiele” hopes to host the 2010 championships in or near the “Frankenstein Castle” which is located 40km from Frankfurt or about 15km south of Darmstadt..

The tentative date is the end of September or early October

The 4 players representing North America will be selected as follows:

1. A Wizard tournament held in the TORONTO area on a Saturday with 80 - 100 players. There will not be a Friday welcoming reception.

I am checking it out but I believe that the German tournament is played using only 4-handed games. If this is truly the case then all games for this tournament will be 4-handed games. Top 2 players win trips to Germany.


3. An online tournament which will consist of the total of a player’s Top 10 scores for the period running from January 1, 2010 through June 31, 2010. Top 2 players win trips to Germany.


North American Fantasy Deck

The Fantasy deck is now complete. The “Legend” behind the cards and the characters represented on the cards have been described in earlier Newsletters. If you are interested they are still available online at www.wizardcards.com.

The cards are color-coded which should help to prevent some misplays.

Clubs………………Brown

Diamonds………….Purple

Hearts………………Red

Spades……………..Black

Wizards……………Blue

Jesters………………Green


The deck will be available for downloading as soon as Victor is able to put the cards on the site.


German Fantasy Deck

The German Fantasy deck will be used for the 2010 World Championships. The deck is now available for online ordering on the Wizard site.
