Subject: [FASA] Tourney Rules (repost)
Date: Tue, 21 Apr 1998 19:55:15 -0700
Someone was asking if FASA had put out official tourney rules. A
number of you have seen these from when the DLOH's snuck them to me
and I first posted them. Still, with the influx of newbies, I thought
it'd be good to toss them out again.
