Doing Nothing Is Doing Skill

''World Series of Skill Games.''

Look for GSN to announce the WSoSG in the near future. According to its recent trademark app, GSN will be "sponsoring, organizing, conducting, and producing non-casino games played via the internet which are exhibited through television."

It's only natural that GSN would host a World Series since you can already compete in the Skill Games 2006 World Championship. By playing games like Zuma, Solitaire and Bejeweled, you have the chance to dominate the World Championship and score $1,000,000 cash!

I'm guessing — with absolutely no insider info, it's just a guess — that the WSoSG will be a two-hour special about the Finals since all finalists must travel to LA in the middle of June, 2006 to compete against each other.

The rules for the World Championship are great. Mostly it's the usual legal BS, but there is one phrase I just adore that I highlighted in bold italics.
Except where prohibited by law, entry in the Championship and a winner’s acceptance of a prize constitutes permission for the Company to use each winner’s name, address (city and state), photo, likeness, biographical information, statements and voice for advertising, promotion and publicity purposes throughout the universe in perpetuity, in whole or in part, by any and all means, media, devices, processes and technology now or hereafter known or devised (including, without limitation, print, broadcast and Internet) without future notice or compensation, in, and in connection with: (1) the production, distribution, exhibition, promotion, advertising and exploitation of the Championship and website; (2) advertising, promotion and publicity for the Sponsor; (3) the prize awarded; and/or (4) any current or future promotion conducted by the Sponsor.
