Seems rather over-complicated, no? I think the idea of just having the entrants talk to each other how and when they'd like would probably be better and easier for everyone then if there's some kind of judging to be done, just base it on how many people they managed to speak to or something. I don't see a need to over-complicate it so much for an event like this when the idea's just to introduce people make friends haha. As much freedom as possible over who & when you talk to would be ideal imo. You're more likely to make friends if you're not being forced to talk to them and having to talk about certain things. x] Spontaneity in approaching & talking to someone is a wonderful trait <3
