Hello everyone and welcome to my new longway kompetition. The aim of the game is to simply get as many longways as you kan.

Here are the rules:
  • To be a longway, the goal piece must go around a static before achieving victory.
  • All designs must achieve victory.
  • Only longways which occur before victory are kounted.
  • Going around a group of statics which are touching each other kounts as 1 longway.
  • You can go around the same static (or static) more than once.
  • There is no elimination in the qualifier; however, 1/3 of the remaining kontestants in each subsequent round will be eliminated.
  • Have fun!

Level 1
Level 2

Awesome, swimming I assume? Good luck :)

I've made the deadline Sunday so that people have a weekend to solve the level.

I will not be participating as I have no knowledge of longways, but this is certainly a great idea for a comp and I will be watching all of the awesome designs that come out of this.


Good luck everybody!

Yes indeed.

I understand that it might take a while to get a good score on the level, so I'll assume people are still working on a sol.

Thanks for the bump Brian, but with only 5 entrants there might have to be a rethink in the way this operates. How about having 3 (or so) levels and the person with the most combined longways wins?

I feel like those solutions are unfair. Is there any way to clarify the rules so you can't just make those?

I would like to, but without insisting upon brown solutions I don't see how.

You can't go around a static object more than once in a row?

IMO, as written, the rules call for exactly what zhyrek and bisam did. (I thought it was brilliant.) But, I agree with rianbay that it might be a good idea to forbid going around a static object more than once in a row.

The problem with saying that is that we would then go around TWO objects back and forth, back and forth, etc

The other problem is that i will exploit any loophole to its fullest extent :D (Excellent example of this: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=8540&fbid=6OCYKza50EM )
