You should all know by now that we’re mailing out mugs to all of our Planets Magazine Classic Invitational Tournament participants. (Thanks to a generous — and anonymous — player, some of the cost of doing this has been donated.) What you may not realize is that we’re also sending out a physical trophy to the final victor.

Of course, that’s just an idea of what it might look like. We’re still fiddling with the design.

Which, naturally, is where you come in. We’re having some trouble choosing which of several potentially meaningful quotes we should place at the bottom of the trophy. We want something pithy and inspirational. Although we’ve narrowed it down a lot from the original list, we’re stuck between these final options, and we want you to help us choose.

This poll will close in a week. Vote early so as to not miss your chance!

NOTE: If it’s very close, we’ll come up with a suitable tiebreaker. -Editor

You could earn one of these. Yes, you.

By the way: We’re buying a few of these together to save money; they’ll all have the same design. So this means that you could earn one too, if you ever join one of our Invitational Tournaments. We’re setting up the next one now, and the first round of invitations will go out in a few weeks. Stay tuned for more news!

We here at the Mag rely on your feedback to measure how well we’re doing, and there’s very little to match that joyful feeling of getting a free coffee. As always, you can make a PayPal donation to support the Planets Magazine, or click the button below to Buy Us A Coffee — and don’t forget to leave a note!

  1. Ok, so I gotta go with Ripley’s quote about nuking the site from orbit.

    However, Private Hudson had the best quote in the Aliens movie. Why don’t you put her in charge (referring to the little girl who survived in the vents longer then they did)

    Ripley: How long after we’re declared overdue can we expect a rescue?

    Corporal Hicks: Seventeen days.

    Ripley: Seventeen days?

    Private Hudson: Hey, man, I don’t wanna rain on your parade, but we’re not gonna last 17 hours. Those things are gonna come in here like they did before. They’re gonna come in here-

    Ripley:  Hudson! Hudson!

    Private Hudson: They’re gonna come in here and they’re gonna get us!

    Ripley: This little girl survived longer than that… with no weapons and no training. Right?

    Private Hudson: Why don’t you put her in charge?




    • Hail,

      There is a New, GEN Mark WOKE Milley version of the Art of War previewed by the Babylon Bee.

      U.S.—Sun Tzu’s The Art of War is a pretty good book, but General Mark A. Milley says he can make it even better. Milley believes the book needs to be updated to integrate all the advancements America’s modern military has made in military tactics and strategy. To that end, he’s releasing his own version of the book.

      And here at The Babylon Bee, we’re legit journalists, so we’ve got the exclusive scoop. Here are some excerpts from the upcoming revision of The Art of War:

      “If you think you might attack an enemy, pick up the phone and give ’em a heads up. It’s only fair.”

      “You have to be careful not to surprise your enemy. They really don’t like it.”

      “Treason is not treason if it is the lesser of two treasons.”

      “Know thy pronouns, and know thy enemy’s pronouns.”

      “The supreme art of war is to surrender to your enemy without fighting.”

      “All war is white rage.”

      “If you surrender, you can never lose.”

      “If thy commanding officer sends mean tweets, thou need not follow orders or the chain of command.”

      “The enemy of my friend is my friend.”

      “Keep your friends close and your enemies on speed dial.”

      “You can not betray the one to which you were never loyal.”

      “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for China.”

      “When retreating, leave most of thy armaments behind so you know what you’ll be up against next time.”

      “Chinese bros before American hoes.”

      “He who turns on bad orange man gets big book deal.”

      Wow! Deep thoughts from America’s leading strategist. Let us know if you have more great Milley-esque military advice in the comments.
