                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Coming up with a solid 1-0-0 outing, LAUGH TRACK LORDS has advanced 3 
places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for JACK TRIPPER, who flew up 17 
points in the rankings after mashing NORBEN THE LESSER like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  MARVELOUS 
MARK was subdued by DENGAN THE TRADER and drops 4 points.  Our battling duelmaster 
KARANZA THE WILD has managed to hold the title, fending off MASTER OF THE EDGE's none 
too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, DAL SHANG.  An apple a day keeps the 
doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad TOLBIN'S  GEMS?  Big bad 
TOLBIN'S GEMS.  Big bad TOLBIN'S GEMS.  DAL SHANG's afraid of the big bad TOLBIN'S 
GEMS.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, 
cause LAUGH TRACK LORDS beats feet every time TOLBIN'S GEMS smiles at them.  Try 
farming, eh?  And who is this NORBEN THE LESSER you ask, with 66 points and a 11-33-0 
record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  We might as well mark the 
passing of MESSY MATT, who was relatively new to the arena at 4-2-0.  Probably killed 
before his first shave.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the DAL SHANG giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can 
pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

             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!
