The date for the SEVENTH bi-annual PyWeek challenge has been set: Sunday 7th 
September to Sunday 14th September (00:00UTC to 00:00UTC).

The PyWeek challenge invites entrants to write a game in one week from
scratch either as an individual or in a team. Entries must be developed
in Python, during the challenge, and must incorporate some theme chosen
at the start of the challenge.


In order to reduce the number of unnecessary registrations, we will open
the challenge for registration one month before the start date. See the
competition timetable and rules:


Make sure you have working versions of the libraries you're going to use.
The rules page has a list of libraries and other resources.

Make sure you know how to build an MD5 sum for your submission. See the
challenge help page for more information.

Make sure you can build packages to submit as your final submission (if
you're going to use py2exe, make sure you know how to use it and that it

If you don't have access to Linux, Windows or a Mac to test on, contact
friends, family or other competitors to find someone who is able to test
for you.
