The cable channel GSN (which formerly stood for Game Show Network) announced last night that they are working on a new show that aims to find the best online gamer in the country. Don't get your hopes up, Everquest fans. This competition focuses on more simplistic games, like Solitaire and Bejeweled 2. Those time-tested titles, along with Zuma, are the games that could qualify you to be headed to Los Angeles in September.

It appears this will be for a one-time special and not part of a new game show on the network. Finalists will win a trip to Los Angeles, where, on September 9, the showdown will be held. The finals will also pit gamers together in the same three games.The tournament was originally planned by SkillJam before GSN decided to cash in on it. At least 400 people will qualify for the finals, based on scores obtained at GSN's flash games. You'll also be able to score a seat by just showing up in L.A. and paying $4,000.

The show's called World Wide Web Games and will air in December on GSN. You can try to qualify for the championship here.
