Welcome to the Little Big Contraption Challenge - an event where your skills at making medieval trebuchets, armoured assault tanks and rocket propelled banana launchers are about to come in handy!
Every few weeks a new thread will be posted here in the forums with details for a new challenge.You'll have just over 2 weeks to make a specific contraption to complete a certain task, which could be anything from transporting a heavy crate to getting over a mountain in a flying machine. All the rules and requirements for each challenge will be posted in the appropriate thread, so make sure you read through it carefully!
After the deadline the judges (the other MVPs, MusterBuster, Chimpanzee and myself) will narrow down all the entries to the five or six we like the most, and then it'll be up to you, the community, to vote for the overall winner!

Contraption Challenge 12 is on the way, keep an eye on this thread for details!
All the finalists from each challenge will also get their contraption featured in an awesome HD video, recorded and edited by Chimpanzee. You can watch all of these videos for each challenge on our YouTube channel, or via iTunes in video podcast format, so you can download them straight to your iPod or iPhone!
