Played to completion?: Um, I don't think so. Hard to be sure.
Hmm. This is interesting, but is it IF? I guess it depends on whose definition you take on that matter, but on most of the definitions I've seen lately, the answer has to be no. So I'm voting it a low score, for the simple reason that it doesn't belong in an IF competition. The Mona Lisa wouldn't belong here either, nor Scrabble, nor Moby Dick.

I do have a certain amount of sympathy for the author. I can see that this is, if not a game, at the very least a puzzle, which might well appeal to the same sorts of people that play IF. But if you just came out and touted that on the newsgroups at any other time of year, you might not get any takers, so what do you do? You submit it to the competition, that's what, and then people have to play it, if only long enough to tell you that it's not IF.

Sigh.

I can't give this thing a high score because scoring in this competition asks whether something is good IF; this is not good IF.
