    For the tenth Census tournament, we will be voting on the best Star Wars line in the saga.
    (many thanks to scott for letting me run one! :) )


    Tournament Rules

  2. The lines will be arranged randomly, and separated into brackets.

  3. Read the latest posts to make sure you are voting on the current bracket.

  4. The initial rounds will have two brackets open for approximately 24 hour at a time.

  5. Please do not vote more than once using socks. If you are caught doing so, you will lose voting privileges for this tournament.

  6. All decisions of the Tournament Director are final.



  7. There will be 8 brackets with 16 lines each, for 128 lines total. For the first round, we?ll be voting in pairs, to move things along a little faster.

    Our 8 brackets: Mos Eisley, Dune Sea, Judland Wastes, Beggar?s Canyon, Sarlacc, Tosche Station, Jabba's Palce, and Lars Homstead.

    I want to thank Tracy for organizing and hosting this new tournament.

    It should be fantastic! :D

    And if we run short of nominations, we'll have to use "They're no match for droidekas!" :D ;)

    Guys, you can only post two lines per post! :p

    Otherwise, I'd have just copy and pasted most of the lines in my first post :p.

    "You don't need to see his identification. These aren't the droids you're looking for. He can go about his business. Move along."
    - Obi-Wan, ANH

    Now, technically, he is "interrupted" by the stormtrooper. What do you think? Tracy will make the final call if we want to use all four lines, or just the first line. :)

    Yes, please try to only post two lines per post, to let others have a chance.

    Although, i should mention, if we get a very large response, we may accept 128 lines instead of just 64. We shall see!!

    Clearly, sir, you did not read the rules! Although that Legolas line is one of the very best, epic lines of the LOTR trilogy.... one of Tolkein's favorites I might add, it is definitely not Star wars.

    Your ROTK line is DISQUALIFIED!
