Thanks primarily to Peter, yes, we have ZRFs or ZRF game editors for all the games!

Forty-two PBEM games? Yowza. Do you have ZRFs for all of them...or at least 'ZRF editors' like you built for the one game that is almost surely too broad to program? Or are you having to do one or more with ASCII or FFEN or other representations?

<h4>Progress Report</h4> The judges have <strong>not</strong> actually fled the country, but continue to work on the contest. Since we decided to play all of the entries <em>twice</em>, that's 42 email games. However, we are down to 10 games left, all currently in simultaneous progress. <p> Thank you for your patience.

It's amazing what range can be found among these entries, unified only by
one simple requirement and the ethereal concept of 'chess'.  This was fun!

This contest is now closed, although non-competing entries will still be accepted. The judges are working on the judging, but still have a lot of e-mail games to go, and so don't yet know when they will be done.
