Would anyone here be at all interested in participating in a tournament where the debate topics were exclusively Star Wars themed?

After reading the debate bsh1 did on Mace Windu vs Yoda (http://www.debate.org...), I feel inspired to see even more debates that allow people to exhibit the true depth of their nerdyness and their love for star wars. The topics could range from hypothetical fights, Unifying theory vs. living theory, or even true to life topics about george lucas, casting, and producers of the movies.

Am I the only one who would like to see this?

I think the general sentiment is that we've got quite a lot of tournaments going on at the moment (I can see 7 on the DDO section of the forums!). It may be worth waiting until some of these tournaments die before starting a new one, as it will help avoid a massive participation collapse in 6 weeks' time.

Though if of course you can get enough people now then go right ahead.
I'm back (ish).

Well it will obviously take some time to get it set up, right now I'm just surveying interest.

I know the movies well enough but have little knowledge in the rest of the canon. . I'm worried I'd be out geeked rather than out argued.
