MocOlympics... 2011... FINAL ROUND!

It's Canada vs New Zealand in the epic final match of this year's games! Congratulations to Leda and Jason!
Ok, you all know the rules but we'll just put em in here to be fair.

Round 7 starts NOW and will end on Sunday, December 11th at 11:59 pm MOCpages time.

Your entry MUST:
Be titled "MocOlympics (may be shortened to MO) round 7 "You" vs "Your opponent." You may title it anything you wish after that but that must be the opening of the title.

Near the TOP of the entry you must state what category you are playing in and you must have a WORKING link to both the MocOlympics group AND your opponent's page. If you post your entry first then their homepage is fine, if they post first then link to their entry please. (You do not have to change it to their entry after they post but it would be nice to them if you did. Again, not needed and you will NOT be docked in any way if you don't. Your choice)

You must add your entry to the group pool (no, you don't need to leave any links, adding it to the group is good enough). Once you add it to the group, that's it, it's OURS and NO changes may be made. We STRONGLY suggest that you get feedback from others before adding it to the group. If any changes need to be made please do so BEFORE you add it to the group pool. The judges will NOT look at it until it's added to the group.

Once you and your opponent have posted and added to the group, the judges will vote on the mocs. There will be 7 judges for this final match and you must receive 4 out of the 7 votes to be crowned champion!

Your judges are:
Mark Kelso, Chris Phipson, Matt David, Mr. Xenomurphy, Stacy Sterling, Dave Kaleta, El Barto



Your category for this, the final round of the games is (pause for dramatic effect...)

Jason Corlett vs Leda Kat in:
Aesopís Fables - The ancient Greek storyteller told many fables with a moral lesson that could be expressed explicitly by a maxim. Choose one of his fables and recreate it as a scene or story.

You've worked hard and fought many hard battles to get here and now it's down to two. But remember, in the immortal words of Connor McCloud... there can be only one!

Good luck to you both!

Any serious Lego lover can be very empathetic with that statement :) Go hard Leda and bring that cup home! If I were in Christchurch i'd be offering the use of my collection if you wanted it, unfortunately 1000km is a bit too much distance to throw :(

Canada is my second fav country by the way Jason, this couldn't be a more exciting final for me to watch :)

I'm sure you could use your epic building skills to build a life-size working airship out of LEGO and fly your whole collection over that 1000km distance :)

While I have great respect for Leda Kat, it's about time Canada succeeded at something.

Hmm possibly, need to win lotto first - and that requires a ticket... a winning ticket... in NZ you have a 1 in 4million chance of winning - means you have more chance of being elected as the next prime minister for NZ haha.

Yes so I've heard, I just find it funny that that there is a better chance of becoming the PM than winning Lotto here. I think the USA has a 1 in 280million chance, from what I hear it is very rarely won :-D

I couldn't find the bottom of the questions thread so I'll leave this here.

Should we be using the original version of the fables, written by Aesop or can we use one of the many, many, MANY rewrites of the stories? The originals seem to be light on story and get straight to the moral. Whereas the rewrites have more girth story-wise.

As far as the "rules" go you can go either way.

Personally, I'll be looking for a more direct interp on this but if the story is done well and has a more modern twist I wouldn't mark it down. That's just my opinion on it of course and remember, there's 6 other judges here too so everyone's gonna look at it a little differently.

I'd say go with your gut and put out the best moc overall that you can do, regardless of "time period" or sticking to source material. We've seen PLENTY of "sideways approaches" to category interp in these games and usually they end up paying off!
