The second monthly contest was much smaller, simpler, and easier than the first. That is, if you were paying attention to the rules. About 50% of the entrants realized the hidden contest theme, which shouldn't have been too hard once you noticed that this was the Third Anniversary Contest! Every correct entry's title included the number "3" and was the third in the series of games!

This month's winners were Fritz Fraundorf, Desman Bailey, and Lee Saito, who along with Matt Blevins, all tied with 19 points! The winners were decided by the tiebreaker question, and then a random draw as both Fritz and Desman picked the same tiebreaker!
