    I intended on judging the entries this weekend, but I had family surprise me with a visit. I intend on going through them tonight.

    Had any more entries?
    On the bright side, I've still got pessimism and despair to fall back on.

    No, I just haven't had time to judge existing entries -insert facepalm-

    I should have judged them on the 10th, but got lazy. Then Hurricane Delta came and screwed up all my plans.

    I just have yours left to judge, 2kaud. It only took me forever to get to them

    I want to thank everyone who participated in the DnD Dice Roller contest!

    As is tradition, it took me too long to judge the entries, but without further adieu. The winner is...

    Re: Contest 14 - DnD Dice Roller

    Thank you kindly.

    The irony is that I've never even played D&D.

    I've had a look at the competitors' entries and to be honest I think that all of them could have won on their own merits. I did enjoy that they are all in different languages too.

    Delaney's entry did the job asked with clear, idiomatic code that is easy to understand and didn't deviate into any superfluous functionality.
    2kaud's entry was rather more complex than mine (we both added quite a bit of functionality that wasn't asked for). However 2kaud went the extra mile and made a pretty much fully rounded D&D dice roller that I could easily imagine being very useful in real-life D&D games.

    In my opinion this was anyone's race, but it was an enjoyable one for sure.

    I hope we can get more people involved with the next one, if only to make the judges' lives harder

    dday9, I wouldn't mind judging the next contest if you want a breather (or want to take part yourself). I'll try to come up with some ideas for a new contest topic anyway.
