<p>The contest is over at last. The winners are: <ul> <li><b>1st: Outback Chess</b> <li>2nd: Heroes Hexagonal Chess <li>3rd: TamerSpiel <li>4th/5th tie: Cross-Eyed Chess <li>4th/5th tie: Ultra-Slanted Escalator Chess </ul> <p>This was a bear to judge, as the top three separated themselves relatively quickly from the other nine but it took weeks to decide between them. And we never could pick between 4 and 5, except to say that they surpassed the other seven finalists. <p>Thanks again to all the people who stepped in at crucial times to keep this from imploding. I'll make an announcement about prizes ASAP after consulting with the chief editors.
