**THE K'NERF CONTEST-UPDATED** Answered

**THIS CONTEST GOES FROM SEPTEMBER 1ST-OCTOBER 1ST. JUDGING LASTS FROM OCTOBER 1ST TO OCTOBER 15TH.**

Hello K'nexers!

     A few other K'nexers and I have been discussing the idea of having a Nerf-K'nex themed contest after the main Rods and Connectors contest was over. We wanted it to combine Nerf and K'nex in a way that would be useful to both Nerfers and K'nexers.
      
     This is a contest for K'nexers and Nerfers to build Nerf-related K'nex creations. Entries can be K'nex guns that shoot Nerf darts, K'nex guns based off of Nerf guns, or both. All entries related to these things will be accepted.

      TO ENTER, BUILD A NERF-RELATED K'NEX GUN AND POST IT IN A GOOD QUALITY INSTRUCTABE. PLEASE POST A LINK TO YOUR GUN BELOW TO OFFICIALLY ENTER.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rules:

-All entries must be K'nex versions of Nerf guns, or Nerf dart shooting K'nex guns-or both

-Pictures of Nerf gun replicated (if any) must be included. They can be from any source.

-Any kind of K'nex or Nerf ammo is allowed. (Oodammo, rods, connector ammo, finnammo, wheels, gears, vortex disks, elite darts, streamline darts, suction darts, tagger darts, whistler darts, micro darts, and mega darts).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Judging rules:
-Judges can enter if they want, but their entries will be judged by another judge.
-Entries will be spilt up among judges (if there are a lot of entries).
-Judges will focus on the following points when rating entries:
-Picture quality.       
-Nerf related?       
-Does it look like the real gun?[for replicas]/shoot darts at normal Nerf range (10-30 ft/3.048m-9.144m)? [for dart-shooters] -choose one or the other if it has both.
-Range+accuracy?
-Visual appearance?
-Overall quality? (Built with care, or just thrown together?)

Judges will rate entries on a 1-10 scale for each focus. Highest score wins. Maximum score is 60 points.
Scores will be reported in the comments section of each entry. They will be compiled at the end of the 6-week period.

*All judges names are confidential. There are almost ten.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Prizes:
-Highest score; Grand Prize: Patch and/or sub from each judge, and a 2-year Pro membership.
-Next three highest scores: 1st prize: sub from each judge, 1-year pro membership, patch from me.
-Next three highest scores: 2nd prize: sub from each judge, 3-month pro membership.

*There is no voting in this contest.

What Nerf gun is this based off of?

It is not based of any nerf gun, but because it can shoot nerf bullets, it qualifies as an entry.

It's not based off a nerf gun, as long as it shoots nerf ammo of some sort it can be entered as well.
