Bridge Builder Contest 17 Results


The number of participants in contest 17 was comparably low. In the end there were six clean, nine dirty and five artistic entries. Maybe the level was too hard, maybe contests 16 and 17 were too close, maybe there aren't too many people interested in Bridge Builder any more or maybe most of the people were busy buying Christmas presents ... On the other hand there were entries of six people that have never entered a contest before and I'm sure that everyone who participated had lots of fun building the bridges.

Anyway, receiving all the bridges was a great pleasure and competition was close. Four of the six clean bridges are put together using less then 70 beams and seven of the nine dirty bridges are built for less then 4000 $. But, although there were pairs and triples of bridges with the same cost and building good bridges fast was important once again, it wasn't as close as you may think, especially not for the Bridge General and the Bridge Don title.

As always, any feedback on the contest is welcome. Please post your thoughts in this forum thread. Each of the winners will get an eternal place in the Hall Of Fame (if he doesn't have one yet) once Gray gets the necessary information from them. The bridge cost discussion forum is no longer password-protected until the next contest starts. For your reference, the rules/prizes page and the contest level file can still be found here.

Last but not least I'd like to thank Gray and Mendel for their help and Chronic Logic for providing the prices. Running this contest was a great pleasure and a privilege.

Now, I won't put you on the rack anymore, the results:
