I learned through Mr. Wagner that my former employer just announced the first ever million dollar skill game tournament.

To win the tournament one must be the best all-around at their three most popular games, Solitaire, Zuma and Bejeweled 2. These games are among the most popular “casual” games around. Casual gaming is the term used for games that do not target the hard-core gaming audience such as Half-Life and Quake. The typical casual gamer is a thirty year-old mother in the midwest.
