Hmm I don't know...
Maybe KF will answer that question, since he's the organizer.

As I allow discussion of games during the judging period I don't see any reason to rule against reviews (as long as they are not from authors)
3. Discussion of entries is allowed, but authors should not actively canvass for support.
* This does not stop you using beta testers.
* The author can provide help directly to players if they request it.
* You may create a website to support your game(s) with information and background. (This could be a blog)
Staring harder at the screen doesn't give any more inspiration

Those posting reviews might also want to consider posting reviews on the Interactive Fiction Database (IFDB). The pages for the Summer Comp games are as follows (click name for link):

I was just planning to send my comments in with my votes. There's no way of knowing whether everyone has played yet, and even though I know early discussion is allowed in this case I prefer to avoid it...even without spoilers I find that reading another person's reaction to a game can color my own, and I don't want to wind up doing that to someone else. It's best to go into judging comps blind, IMO.
