What makes you say that? The rules haven't changed that much. There are a few more bold terms added in now, but nothing crazy, like pictures being allowed or anything.

Makes me wonder what would change.
That artistic person on each team would do it for sure...

True, but then it would basically become a glorified version of PITI, Picture This, and I don't know about you, but I def don't think that we need another Picture This roaming about

What year(s) did they allow pictures? that would really make so many things easier. Did they ever allow pics?

I don't think they ever allowed pictures to my knowledge. That kind of ruins the point of describing what the person should be building, rather than just drawing it. xD

Hey guys. For those of you who have done this before, do the event coordinators ever give the "doer" more supplies than the actual structure shown to the "writer" contains?

It depends on the people running the event. I've seen both cases (no extras, extra materials given) numerous times.

Sometimes, the ES penalizes putting on a material incorrectly. It's impossible for the writer or doer to know if such a penalty exists, but the writer can write something along the lines of "End" or "Done" so that the doer at least knows if certain materials are extras or not. This way, the doer doesn't throw on a bunch of extra materials in case they think they could earn any points

The real challenge is when you don't have enough materials as a doer and you spend the next 10 minutes trying to realize which part the writer is talking about :( Sad reax only
