* If you feel a rule is too over restricting and takes away fun, please do write us.
* Judge has ultimate decision power over rules (dont worry, I prefer voting)
* I, admin, will be excluded from winning a prize and scoring. I will just compete with my sumo robot for fun. =) Why else would I give all my secrets away for?
