    Likely multiple locations. There's no reasonable way to distribute samples overseas from continental Europe.
    If it happens that all the judges live in the US, and we manage to go for the blind evaluation, we might end up with a single destination in the US.
    So far we have two judges, both located in the US, but we need at least one more.

    If you package them so that all they have to do is mail, I am sure some one will accommodate. I wold gladly do it, but see if someone judging would do it first.

    Bumping.
    The game is good to go. I still didn't get neither YES nor NO from a few judges which hinders me greatly in offering the gig to other people. It would be nice to get some sort of answer... But we've got three judges already so the game is safe-ish.

    Heads up.

    The stellar ensemble of judges:

    Italy: Darvant
    UK: perfumum
    USA: Bavard, benjwi02, fragrantregard

    Big thanks for signing up!

    On the more personal note: having considered distant and unknown and even more distant and even more unknown places to go, I'm leaning towards Alpine meadows, an environment I'm rather familiar with. I just can't resist all of these nice shrinking but fragrant flowers that have started to appear near my place even though it was still snowing today.

    Yes please!

    As I wrote I'm likely to be quite mundane; I really crave simple joys of life this lockdown deprived me of; but I also hope the participants will consider letting their imagination run wild.

    I've only seen now ... interesting .... waiting for the sandal game to end, another one has already started .... ok, I'll participate in this too ..... I have an idea in mind to develop on which I have been working every now and then for a few years and it could be the right opportunity to work on it more deeply ....

    I certainly hope we keep them in the game. What might change is the time for evaluation. I intend not to put the judges under pressure. I think it's hard to appreciate a fragrance if evaluating it is a burden.

    It’s a lot of work. Anyone who will review 10-20 perfumes and write them up, even briefly, has my full respect. Personally I think it would take me three months, but also I’m a little bit of a perfectionist (I need to overcome this fault). I had fun reading every single one of the reviews in the last game thread and it had my dying to smell.

    I’m not sure when the deadline is, but I was too busy for the last one. I think it will be a great use of my time and an enjoyable exercise this round : ) pencil me in.

    Reading threads about the games, the very first one was David's idea if I remember right, can be quite fun and inspiring. Also somehow justifying the very existence of DIY community. The undoubtedly hard work to evaluate the perfumes seems to me quite worth it,

    Currently, 15 July, but the last game hasn't concluded yet so it will be likely moved. I thought autumn would be the perfect time to post the reviews.

    What I learnt from the second game I took part in, was not to try to create a perfect fragrance for the contest but rather to make sure I enjoy the creating it. It's easier said than done, I guess, but I'd submit something, anything no matter how unfinished.
