Ms Pac-Man vs Ghost Team Competition

As part of our CIG'11 Ms Pac-Man vs Ghost Team competition, we are interested in ranking the ghost 
teams submitted according to their 'fun factor'. I am pleased to announce that we have now finished
the applet where you may play against any of the ghost teams submitted. The applet may be accessed 

The idea is for people to vote for the teams they enjoyed playing against the most and once we have
accumulated sufficient data, we will rank all ghost teams for the final price category. I would 
thus like to ask you all to play the game whenever you feel like it and to advertise it to everyone
you know - the more votes we can accumulate over the next few months, the better.

Thanks again for your participation in our past competitions and we hope to see you again next 
year (details about upcoming competitions will be posted on the competition website).
