The game is Starcraft II played in a series of 1v1 matches, with the winner being the first to four victories. The map is Metalopolis, which features four starting positions behind narrow ramps, and two gold mineral expansions in the center. The races are randomly determined, just like real life generals. The players are Tom Chick, ranked 5th in his division in the silver league, and Kelly Wand, who has one of those dragon icons in Warcraft III but hasn’t even played the stupid campaign in Starcraft II.
The score so far: Tom: 3, Kelly: 2
Game six, after the jump

subject TvK game five screens
Hey, if you have time tonight, can I trouble you to grab three or four screenshots from the game five replay? I didn’t get around to it today and it’s almost time for Shoot Club, which will probably go late. I’ll set up the post after everyone leaves, but it’ll help if you can grab us some images.
Also, what game are we doing next month? Civ IV Dune Wars. Rdy?
Yeah, I’ll do it now, stand by.
Here, bra. Had another idea for a piece: games I wish they’d make sequels to but know they won’t. Like Magic Carpet.
Thanks for the screens. You’re a lifesaver. Also, I’m tipsy from three glasses of wine. We should play Starcraft 2 right now!
Also also, you should totally do that article. No joke. “Six sequels that will never happen” is total linkbait and a great opportunity for you to fuck around and write whatever you like. Expect me to hound you about that in teh futare.
yeah starcraft rdy…
I don’t know if you’re joking, but I will totally play the next game with you after I queue up this article and have a beer. No joke. I will play tipsy. That is no lie.
You drink beer after wine? Lolz. Yeah, 3:45 rdy? Or whenever.
Well, the wine ran out b/c everyone drank it. Jerks.
Cutting and pasting stuff in Word Press. Word Pressing. WordPressin’. Pressing werdz. Stand by.
I think you need to go back to weed. I’ll bring some to Shoot Club, rdy…
Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, there’s no more beer. Only cider, which tastes like cat pee. Is there alcohol in cider?
So you’re not tipsy and can’t get tipsy and this was all a ruse. Huh jerk.
You should hope I’m not tipsy. I play way better tipsy. I totally get “in the zone” and I “dominate” all “comers”. You will get “pwned”. Totally”.”
Sizing up screenshots and pasting them into an article. Stand by to get totalypwned, as I call it.
Also, the cider is awful. I’m going to have another one just to be sure. I think it’s got alcohol. That’s what hard cider means, right? Heh, hard.
I just belched. Write that down.
I’m going to post this whole e-mail chain under a new heading called “Things Tom Insists Everyone Should Be Aware Of.”
Hey, these are good screens! I can tell you specifically picked out some good moments. Good work! ILY.
Blearrrghhhhh. That was me burping cider. Seriously, though, who drinks this stuff? Ugh.
Don’t forget the one of my mutalisks
The “wages of sin” 3rd act of Boogie Nights/Shoot Club. Huh.
Finished pasting screens in. Quick last minute check then heading to Skype. Finishing second cider. Which doesn’t taste like cat pee so much as cough syrup that someone poured cat pee into.
Skyping u but u R not there. Imma get another cider which will make me kick ur ass harder. Get on Skype dickweed.
That game didn’t coun’t
Tom: 3, Kelly: 3
