Congratulations also to Andre Wilhelmus for winning the Tournament
of Champions with the best overall entry (Spelunker).

There were three buildings used (they were picked about two weeks ago):
  (I'll circulate them to the participants shortly)

 o amaze.me	  is a collection of 2D mazes - one per floor
 o multiplicity	  was designed to have many, many alternative paths
 o potm.building  was designed by looking sideways at the problem
		  and trying to create sneaky stuff - the result
		  is tunnels, chimneys, and some hidden messages.

ALSO:  Look for the consolation prizes, and the collecions of the program
  descriptions from all the participants ... if you sent a program you'll
  get these without asking.  They will also be posted on the web pages
  in a few days ... along with the source code of a few of the top entries.

Thanks for your support and participation .... if you entered then please
 send in your program descriptions so I can circulate them to all!

 =Fred
