All right you pansies, here is the extra incentive to get your creative juices flowing!

What good is a contest if all you have to show for it is mere bragging rights? Because I know that everybody wants some swag too, then I have volunteered to pony up the prizes & shipping for the winning team (first place team only).

Everybody in the team will get the same prize. The player that tallies up the most points for his team, will get an extra prize, which will be announced at a later date. There might be one for the player in that same team that tallies up the second most points, but time will tell.

I don't know what the sets will be yet, but as soon as I do, then I will post in this thread.

If a teammate does not post any mocs, or if they are disqualified, yet your team still wins, then that person will not get a prize. The rest of you will.

If you are underage for your country, then you will need to have your parent's permission for you to send me your address. If you mother or father would rather have it shipped to their work address, then that is fine by me.

Start those gears working ladies and gentlemen, I want to see some kick butt stuff.

That would be the intrinsic reward that the winning team will revel in, and be able to rub in the faces of all the other teams.

So Mark, Chris, Dylan, and JD (+one) are on a team?

Alright, boys and girls (and Heath - not sure what category he fits into). Let's spice this up a bit. If one of you pansy gluteus maximus teams can beat out this team of horror, then everyone on your team will get the larger prize (TBA), and the person with the most points on said team will either receive two of them, or one even larger.

This offer is only extended to the team that kicks their gluteus maximus, if the four/five stooges actually win, then it is only standard fare for them.

Ah, now see...this dream team of builders is made up of those ALREADY in the throws of combat with other large, and labor intensive MOCs outside of the competition.

We may, in fact, be very limited as to what we can accomplish. I'm not making any predictions at this point, but I'm just saying that other teams may certainly have the capacity to wipe the floor with us.

Well, maybe not clearly state who I 'think' (and think is a stretch for me) will win; rather who I am 'afraid' might (big might) win.

I will run some interference too though, just to stack the odds against you guys. Send Chris a stream of XXX stuff to keep him busy. Fire off a fake commission to Mark for a $100K piece. I have recruited Heather and Stacy to distract both you and JD, which will leave Ian to carry the load.

Hmmm, actually, with just him entering your team might have a chance. I better rethink this.

I honestly can't remember if I stated this before somewhere, but it's always been in place since Lee graciously offered to donate prizes to this contest.

I will also be donating a prize. My prize will go to the games MVP (high scorer) that's NOT on the winning team. The winning team will already be getting prizes so my prize goes to someone NOT on that team.

basically, the one PERSON (not team) who scores the most individual points for their team will receive a prize from me.

Hope that made sense... I wrote it AND read it twice and I know there's still gonna be questions about it.

What does this mean you ask? It means that your TEAM doesn't have to win the whole shabang for you as a builder to receive a prize!

The same rules about underage contestants that Lee stated above go for me. If your parents would prefer to have the prize shipped to their work, I'm more than happy to do that.

Get building people!

I want in on this action so I'm donating a single prize to the TFOL with the highest total score (not on the winning team). Some might say (and have) that I've been especially critical of the TFOLS, so maybe this will help soothe the burning sensation caused by my scoring. If not, you may want to consult a doctor not names Jones, as it may be a sign of a serious STD.

For the record I have no problem with TFOLs, just the whiney ones.

The specific prize will have to remain a mystery for a few more weeks.

All right you pansy excuse for builders. I will be going to the store to pick up the prizes this week. As soon as I get them, I will post them here.

As for the shipping, that too is on me; however, I do reserve the right to debox the sets to cut the cost of shipping down. That will allow me to put more money towards the prizes rather than shipping. I will try to put the folded boxes in the package if you like.

Thanks for the great run of mocs and ideas you guys and gals have been sharing. I have learned many techniques, and I have met many a great builder that I hadn't known existed before these games.

Allow me to update on who will be getting my donated prize. Originally, my prize was going to go to the top scorer (not on the winning team) of the game. T/Y or AFOL.

After some thought, and being as Mr. Goldman is generously donating a prize to the top "under 18" scorer, my prize will go to the highest scoring (not on the winning team) AFOL.

This is nothing against the younger builders of course, just don't want to have a mix up if the top scorer just happens to be a TFOL.

That is all. Get back to building people! Two days left!
