Wait. Does your tower end with a connector, so that the yellow rod can be attached to it? (Only) then, leave it that way. I'll adjust the rule in that case. Otherwise, you'll have to rebuild.

My parents would be fine with it, but I think his parents think that something might happen if you give too many people your address.

Depends on who wins. I can think of multiple ways: gift cards of prefered stores / paypal / other ways. OFC we'll contact the winner on how they want it ^.^

Here are the rest of my questions:
1. If someones tower falls down once, will you try again, or will you just say it is not strong enough?
2. So the yellow rod is part of the piece count, but not the height?
3. What if someone had the exact (or very close to the same) tower?

1. Yes, I'll try again. But if the tower fails to stand within 10 minutes. I give up. I'll do my best.
2. Correct. Because this can be attached in different ways. The second highest piece counts.
3. Before I will answer this question, I will see the entries first. If I see exact copies, I will take contact with the responsible members.

I hope these answers have been adequate :)

Yes, congratulations! Well done. I personally was really impressed by your tower, it's simplicity, it's construction AND of course it's performance!
My first tower would have lost until I decided to build the tetrahedron :) (that was before any entries came in, btw)

P.S. I win too ;) but more for the honour.

Thanks! The only thing my first tower would've won is maybe strongest and definitely the most beautiful, but probably no prize. It was square, big at the bottom, and small at the top, and it was 80 cm tall.

I thought it was good, until you and @Sorunome said how tall their towers were. Mine was over 20 cm lower than yours, and so that wouldn't work. I thought and thought about how I could make it higher. I came across the triangle design, and it was perfect.

The second tower was like my first one I sent you, only with a different base. I was really proud of it, and couldn't wait until I could enter it. Well, lexi came up with a tower taller than mine, so I really wanted to make one close to as tall as his. I made the base different, and added to the top and got what I have now!
