Yes indeed, I like the site. It uses the same "judge" system as the site I mentioned in my first post. Not always easy to solve though...

    What would be the point if they were easy to solve? I remember going to one of these things and tying for 30th. It was like a 270-way tie for last place. That being said, I had some immature, unpolished sophmores and freshman on my team, and my goal was not to win, but to avoid killing them. Had I been able to recruit better slaves, we would have faired far better :) Still fun though, and lots of free snacks. College students will do anything for free snacks. Another thing is a lot of schools (full of folks with no life) practice for these things (sometimes even offering course credit! blasphemy!) --- we didn't -- so we only walked away with the free snacks.
