Scrapyard wars but the opponents try to make their build as difficult to use for the other person

Recommended Posts

Some ideas include:


The on switch is wired to a car starter but the keys are missing so you have to pick the lock to start the computer


There's a USB stick glued into the back with a gentoo installer on it


the graphics card only has s-video out


someone spilled coffee on the keyboard. all the keys still work, it just feels crumchy is all.


There's no fan on the cpu cooler so you have to blow on it manually


the mouse has a tilt switch so it only works when it's upside down




Opponents would then have to complete certain tasks, such as watching a youtube video or writing and printing a letter, and obviously there would be a rule that the choice of components or modifications could not make completing these tasks impossible, at least in theory.


do it, linux. you know you wanna
