Once the contest is over I'd like players to rate Boomtown. We want to make our missions as fun and well-balanced as possible.

I'll email everyone at the end asking them to rate:
Difficulty
Too many/few cycles?
Point distribution
Availability of fuel

Hope you're dodging those BOMBs.

Don't think I'll be able to make a CW capable of finishing Boomtown before the deadline.

If I don't get enough submissions I'll extend the deadline to the weekend.

Work is really slamming me at the moment and I could lose myself for days in Chipwits so I have to limit my indulgences.

Currently any attempts I make tend to run out of fuel after gathering half the disks.

So I should add more food.

I won't change the Mission until after the contest.

Hope you give a try this weekend since I extended the deadline!

The clock ticks down.

Less than 2 hours until the contest ends.

We have 3 entries from 2 contestants right now and I am starting the series running.

I am going to run 1 more small contest before we release ChipWits.

The series have been run and the winner...

Will be revealed in an email on the evening of 6/5.

These Boomtown ChipWits are very careful about what they PICKUP or IFFEEL.

ChipHeads,

Lloyd Abell’s “Switcher” won our Boomtown contest with a series score of 1,450 (high 2,250). Mr. Abell please pick out any item $25 or less from the ChipWits Store: http://www.chipwits.spreadshirt.com/

“Pieman2”, another Abell entry, took 2nd with series 1,305 and high 2,250.

Robert Frazier’s “Boomerbot2” took the bronze with a series of 1,066 and high of 1,750.

Congrats to the finalists. I will update Prestigious Hall of Pie later tonight.

We will host one more small beta contest before we release ChipWits to the world. Once the game starts to sell we intend to hold weekly contests.

Thanks for the bug reports and for hanging in there as we get ChipWits ready to release.

Look for news about the Mission Editor before the launch. I can’t wait to see what kind of missions you players come up with.

Congrats and thanks,

The ChipWits Gang – Doug, Mike, and Margaret

-- Let me know if you’d like to be removed from the ChipWits mailing list.

Cool! Third place isn't bad, considering I'd been playing with Chipwits for less than 48 hours when I entered the contest. Thanks for an interesting event. I'll try to do even better in the next contest, after I learn some more about using stacks.

Very cool, Robert!

I am going to create a new mission for a contest next week. It will reward using the MOVE stack.

Hope you win next week!
