ABS Round 2.2!
The second round of season 2 finished up recently, and we now have the results!
Round 2.2 was sponsored by Cuboid, so remember their bricklink store the next time you need some parts. This round's seed part was the white life preserver and the competitors were: Brick, Caleb, Micah, and Paul. These four builders came up with 24 builds incorporating the life preserver.

Our five judges have given their scores and the winner was decided to be Paul Wolfe! This round was the closest yet, with two competitors receiving the same amount of studs, and only the points breakdown giving Paul his victory.

As always, you can keep reading to see the full scoring details, and some interview questions with the competitors themselves!
