The History of Foodmachine by the Numbers

 

Someone asked me how Foodmachine has done historically.  Considering how crunchy I imagine the MoM reader is, I figured getting this up here on the blog would fit right in.  I only had complete data from the years that I’ve personally run Foodmachine (2010 and 2011).  However, I do clearly remember my game club, The NJ SOBs, winning the two years prior.  🙂

So I rooted around in my collection of No Quarter magazine and I found some of the earlier data there, but it is incomplete.  Still we have a really interesting story to tell:
