While you're all ravin' on about this Mt B business, there was a real gem of an item in today's ACF bulletin. [Alex] (1684) has suggested what we all can accept must be a fantastic idea: a competition for Aussie game of the year.

To commence the process, [Alex] submitted his own game against a Mr Tankel. You really must read the bulletin. It is absolutely one of the best annotations you'll ever read.

Here's the game below. Any nominations?

W: Tankel, A
B: [Alex]

Bahahaha... [Alex]! If you think those annotations are hilarious you should actually hear him talk himself up in person! It is a good idea for best game of the year though.
