Invitational Tournament entries invited.

El Segundo, Calif. - May 12, 2008 OGPlanet, an innovative provider of multiplayer online games, today announced the first-ever Invitational Tournament in Albatross18, its fantasy role-playing golf game.

This month, OGPlanet will begin accepting entries from Albatross18 guilds hoping to participate in the Invitational Tournament. Each guild must choose just one representative--the player they feel will have the best chance at bringing the guild top honors at the tournament.

Eighty-seven players will be selected to compete in the three-round tournament in June. Each of the three rounds will include 29 players and one referee. Once three players emerge victorious, they will face off against each other to determine the final Grand Champion.

The Grand Champion, as well as every member of his or her guild, will receive a Gold Event T-shirt designating them as the reigning Albatross18 champions, Event Face Paint, and a custom-designed Guild Phoenix featuring the guild's logo. Second- and third-place finishers will receive Silver and Bronze T-shirts and Event Phoenixes. Every member of the 87 guilds involved with the competition will receive Joy Candies.

"We hope this summer's Albatross18 Invitational Tournament will be the first of many successful tournaments," said Don Choi, COO of OGPlanet. "We're looking forward to finding out who the best Albatross18 golfer is!"
