 Group admin 
Welcome to Round 1 of the 2014 BrickBattle Games.

Before we begin, there are just a few rules I would like to address.

1. ALL ENTRIES MUST BE NEW BUILDS! You can NOT use any old mocs in ANY of your entries for this contest. They must be built specifically for this contest ONLY.

2. All entries MUST be made out of REAL, physical lego bricks, NO DIGITAL ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED!!!

3. ONLY ONE ENTRY MOC ALLOWED PER CONTESTANT, PER ROUND, unless specifically noted in that Round's category description.

4. THERE ARE NO SIZE LIMITATIONS FOR ROUND 1.

5. The entries will be judged on a points scale of 1-10, by a total of 6 judges. The more points you receive, the better your chances are to advancing to the next round.

6. The top 32 contestants in Round 1 will advance to Round 2.

7. All entries MUST be added to the 2014 BrickBattle Games group (this group) and MUST include the following in the tile and description:

All entries MUST include a WORKING link (in the entry's description) back to the 2014 BrickBattles Games group homepage.

Once a entry is posted to the group it BECOMES OFFICIAL, and can NOT be modified in ANY way. Modification of entries after adding them to the group MAY result in disqualification.

Round 1 will last 10 days ending on Friday, July 25th at 11:59PM (EST). Entries for Round 1, posted after the cut off will NOT be included in the judging. NO ENTRIES WILL BE JUDGED BEFORE ROUND 1 ENDS. The highest possible score for Round 1 is 60 points

Quick question. It says the top 32 will advance but only about 24 have signed up. Does that mean everyone will advance?

Sorry guys, there seems to be a delay with judging and results won't be in till tomorrow afternoon the earliest. We will be contacting the judges that haven't finished yet. We are truly sorry for the delay.

Hopefully this will be a good time for you all to have some extra time resorting your bricks and maybe get a chance at two full weekends to build for round 2 (though probably not because that would only happened if we delayed it till Thursday and have a 10-day round).

16 people will be moving on to round 2.

Again, sorry for the delay.

Not to start up an argument or anything, but wouldn't it be better for it to start on Friday or the day after? I mean, then the contestants would have two sets of weekends to build. I can understand if you guys need time and whatever to get all the categories done, but this round has already gone a bit longer than it should have, and getting the next round up might be best for all involved.

That's a good point but here is the thing. I have learned through running this last year and though being in many contests that the best way to keep a contest moving is to have a weekly schedule. and just I am writing this I looked at the calender to remember how the schedule goes and went "well duh" the schedule does go from Friday to Sunday not Monday to Thursday like I was thinking. Therefore we will be starting round 2 on Friday the 8th and ending on Sunday the 17th then the judges will have 4 days to judge and round 3 should start on Friday the 22.
