Preseason quiz links
If you've signed up for Season 1 and have not yet been placed in a division, and you have the time/desire, you should play the preseason quizzes. (But if you don't get to them, that's fine too.) If any paid members need links for any of the Season 1 quizzes, reply to this email or DM me on Twitter. You also should be able to access them from the newsletter page (I think).

One last last pitch
In the last preseason newsletter, I gave "one last pitch" on why you should become a paid member. Well, I don't really have a new pitch (other than I've been getting some really good feedback from the players, some of which I'll be sharing on Twitter today). So I'm just going to repeat what I said before -- feel free to skip this part if you've already heard it.
If you have any ambition of being on Jeopardy! someday, I really recommend that you join us for Season 1. The quiz content will pretty much all be stuff that could come up on the show, and when you miss a question in a competitive setting, it just sticks in your mind that much more. If you have already been on Jeopardy! (as I know many of you have), if you’re anything like me you probably have some nostalgia for it. I hope this league will be a good remedy for that. And maybe you’re neither of those things, maybe you don’t ever want to go on Jeopardy!, but everyone wants to impress their friends and family by being able to shout more answers at the TV, right? Oh yeah, and I hope it will be fun, too.
If I haven't sold you, no worries. I will send out a free newsletter every once in awhile, so you don't have to unsubscribe. If you decide later that you want to join us, you can definitely sign up at any point in the month. You won't compete for a title in Season 1 but it will be a good warmup for Season 2.
Whether you join us or not, thanks again for being here and taking the time to read this, it really means a lot.
