If you were watching SCNS last night (why wouldn't you be?), you would've seen the exclusive reveal of our new gaming tournament show, that begins tonight, entitled United Gaming Federation!  UGF is a monthly (for now) tournament show that pits the best gamers against each other for the top prize in Video Game Entertainment, the Cinelinx UGF Championship! 

Each month, 8 competitors from around the nation will gather at Nerdvana Food & Spirits in Frisco, TX to compete in a tournament of a specific game.  On UGF, every win matters too.  If you win your game, against your opponent, you earn an advantage in the next tournament.  The higher the seed you are, the more power you have in the tournament.  

For those who win a tournament, a bigger prize awaits them at the next tournament.  The opportunity to face the reigning champion and become Cinelinx UGF Champion.  That's no easy road, either.  Whoever is champion, at the time, picks the game weeks in advance.  It's up to the challenger to practice and work up to become the title holder.

SO, now that we have the rules down, let's get down to tonight.  Tonight, at 7:30pm CST, will be the inaugural episode of UGF with Mario Kart Madness!
