It’s become a bit of a December tradition for @MrSteveMatchett’s followers. The din of Formula 1 engines has faded and the Champions crowned. Conversation on Twitter shifts from championships and race finishes to rice grains and component weights.
In 2010 and 2011, Team Eff-One built the following F1 components from rice:
- Chassis (65 kg)
- Steering wheel (1.3 kg)
- Engine (95 kg)
- Chassis testing material (8 kg)
In 2012, our goal was to finish the gearbox (45 kg) and begin work on the rest of the car. Our original goal was 15,000,000 grains (300 kg). We finished with 17,526,250 grains (350.53 kg).

IMPORTANT: Make sure you log in and choose your group before playing so we can credit your grains earned to the team. If you do not choose a group, your grains are not counted towards TEOGAAT totals and cannot be retroactively applied.
The Our Team page is updated every evening with a full team roster. Data is typically captured from 10 – 11 pm CST during the active season (Dec 1-Dec 24). Please make it easier for the Head Mentat and refrain from playing during this time.
The Status Reports page provides daily updates on rice tallies and personnel shifts, important news and updates from the Team Manager/Head Mentat, and Missives from Matchett.
The Team Leadership page showcases our daily grain leaders.
