Major League Magic May 25th Tournament Results!

Yesterday the second-ever Major League Magic tournament happened between 16 players, many of whom returned from our March 9th tournament. Everybody had a blast, and we actually made something of a splash on Twitch, with over 30 viewers at peak levels thanks to our fans spreading the word on Twitter! Everybody really seemed to love the terrain-manipulation elements, as the players’ spell selections crafted the arena into mountain-ridden hellscapes, empty desiccated plains, and everything in between. In the end, Jason won 1st place and became the first ever undefeated champion in a Major League Magic tournament (last tournament’s winner, Joey, reached the… [Continue Reading]

Okay so the European Union are doing a thing called GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation. It comes into effect on the 25th of May. It’s a complicated mess of things that literally everyone has to do, whether you’re working in the EU or not. Very basically, the GDPR aims to protect the data of users, allowing you as a user to demand that any data any company (that exists, works or operates within the EU at least) has on you can be updated or removed as you please, that data HAS to be kept secure and safe, and in… [Continue Reading]

Get Galactic Civilizations II for FREE on Humble Bundle

I know you all love free games, so it’s almost my duty to let you know about them. Galactic Civilizations II: Ultimate Edition is currently available for free via the Humble Bundle store. Yeah I know it’s free advertising for them but not everyone’s subscribed to emails from Humble Bundle and GoG and all that, and I wouldn’t want people to miss out on free games. What is Galactic Civilizations II (or Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords, which is its full title)? According to the Humble Bundle page, it’s a PC strategy game based around exploring and conquering a galaxy,… [Continue Reading]

IT’S OVER 1900! Celebrating 1900 articles and 900 Medic articles – Giveaway!

I said I wouldn’t do milestone articles and stuff but I like the number 900 and the number 1900 has the number 900 in it as well, so double bubble. The 2000th article is still a way away, and it’s unlikely that the articles I write will coincide with the big 2K. Also I just kinda wanted to do a giveaway. But first off, let’s spend a moment thinking just how awesome we are, having published over 1900 articles on the Daily SPUF, one a day since our inception, and the fact that Missy Medic here, the person writing this… [Continue Reading]

Thank you to everybody who joined in watching the first ever Major League Magic tournament! Everybody had a lot of fun, and we totally plan on having more tournaments down the line.
