Here, laid out before you, is the finely tuned rules for the Second Turk Off. This is meant mostly as a guide to the Great Beardy and myself to refer to during the competition for easy scoring. That, however, in no way excludes you lesser folk from looking. In fact, I encourage it.
Dayf, of the incomparable Cardboard Junkie, has once again been tagged as the commissioner. As if he had any choice in the matter he has graciously agreed. ( At least I think he has, not that it matters. He's Commish whether he likes it or not.) Please keep your correspondence with him to a minimum during the Turk Off as it will require his full and undivided attention. He is, of course, free to continue blogging, or whatever the hell it is that he does over there.
If there are any questions feel free to ask. Don't hold your breath for an answer but ask anything you want.
If anyone has any suggestions on how to improve scoring or sees something that we've overlooked, please, by all means, let us know in the comments. Like Hans Gruber, I will take it under advisement.
Now, hit it again.
