Wow.... just six "short" weeks ago the judging started, and just... er... several weeks before that, I started on my entry. It's over already?

Once again I *just* missed a placing in the top 3 (The Traveling Swordsman). :) With such outstanding competition, it's no surprise. I was braced for
something lower. I'll have lots more to say later, when it's not 3:00 AM (and I do work tomorrow). To save the newsgroup from my unfocused ramblings,
I'll probably just post those thoughts to my website.

I felt that this was an incredibly good competition. Great games. Memorable games. I only played around half of them (a lack of time this year), but it
was mostly a great half. Admittedly, I started skipping and picking from the list, partway through.

But what you're after are the reviews, right? :)

Here they are, in order by the score I'd have given if I had voted. I changed my ranking system a little this year to use plus/minus instead of

My IFComp 2006 Reviews page is here:

The full scoring explanation is at:

You can view all of this on a single (very long) page:

Or individually:

Delightful Wallpaper: 10-

Star City: 8-

Unauthorized Termination: 7+

Mobius: 7

The Bible Retold: 7

The Initial State: 7-

MANALIVE Part 2: 6+

Lawn of Love: 4+

Labyrinth: 4

Tetellian Island: 3+

Sisyphus: 3

Simple Adventure: 2

PTGOOD 8*10^23: 2-

I regret that I was unable to play every game this year. The reviews I did, though, are fairly lengthy (if a bit rambly and off-topic at times).

Thanks to everybody who made this a great IFComp -- the organizers, the other reviewers, judges, and the other authors. Thanks!
