Brief John note here before I dump it off: We got Matt Ansley, fresh off his NOVA win to do his writeup. Matt, one of the few people who can rival me for wordiness, ended up writing over 14,000 words. This post is then split into two; this is the "List Genesis and Setup" bit, and next post will be the actual GAMES one. Everything below the picture of him in blue is his, see you all next time!
Matt is my friend, and that is why I'm allowed to post semi-embarassing pictures of him
