After briefly mentioning a personal preference for Thursdays, they went
into some detail about how it would be a bad idea for Pandemonium games
to go to every week on Wednesdays. The reasons given have nothing to do
with that personal preference, and everything to do with alienating the
gaming community by conflicting with a local event run by loyal
customers. They further only requested that Pandemonium gaming switch
days of the week *if* it's going to switch to every week.
You can see all of that yourself in the quote below (I've clipped out
the portion about the personal preference for Thursdays to save
space...you should have it in your logs)
