Enough talk, enough lists, enough comparison of real-world accomplishments. It’s time to settle once and for all whether Cornell or Brown is the greatest school in America. There’s only one logical way such a thing could be done: a massive internet strategy war-game thing.
What are the rules, you ask? Well, we have no clue and refuse to spend even a minute learning them. Apparently it’s like Risk or something. Here’s some random text from their website I copied and pasted without reading.
GXC is a locally social online game.
Every residential college, dorm, or group makes up a team, and anyone in one of those groups can be a player.
You control a piece, your suitemate controls a piece, that girl down the hall controls a piece.
Your pieces, or armies, can take over territory: your quad, your bench, your dining hall – but you, as a team, have to agree on a plan and gather enough forces for a successful attack. If you can’t organize yourselves, how will you ever conquer…your entire campus?
Register for battle right now. Hie thee thither.
Some predictions: Yale does really well in the beginning, but Harvard wins in the end. Princeton, Brown, and Dartmouth get crushed early on. Cornell does better than anyone would have thought.
