                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, FRATSFA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, IRON CATHEDRAL, since 
WEATHER took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  WEATHER turned 
their 4-1-1 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than 
this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
BROKEN HEART win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, VETERAN MERCENARY 
beat RUNNY NOSE and RUNNY NOSE lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to 
absence, and inability to defend the throne, TEMPER has lost the Title of Duelmaster. 
Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
CRACKED KNUCKLE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  
Heh, heh.  The Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where 
do they get this stuff?  From FRATSFA's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  FRATSFA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
IRON CATHEDRAL the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was OTTO'S PARTS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, BOREL was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in FRATSFA to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

             ATTENTION:  ALL MANAGERS WHO ARE ATTENDING THE FACE-TO-FACE

If you plan to attend the Winter Face-to-Face in Phoenix, please let Customer Service 
know.  We will hold your turns for the few days preceding the tourney, starting with 
anything that would mail out on the previous Saturday.  (This means that games due on 
Thursday the 9th (which would mail on Friday) would probably mail to you, but games 
due on the 10th and thereafter will be held and delivered to you at the tournament.  
This way, you won't have to worry about not receiving a critical turn before you 
depart for Newark, and you also don't have to worry about whether you can get a 
reprint before the first turn of the tournament is due.  

See you there!
