But doesn't it say in the rules that you can have a max of 3 pre-lit candles?

Yes so true - it does say that in the rules. Why did they shut you down?!?! An idea I had is perhaps having a thick string melt over a candle after falling over it. Just a thought.

It did say it in the rules but burning something else (a string) is illegal. However, using it to heat up air and make it turn a fan blade? That's in specs.
