Burn the Training Wheels

I've decided to enter the Pyweek challenge. This is a one-week challenge where the participants try to create a game in one week using Python. Think speed chess and a marathon wrapped up into one. What makes this even more interesting for me is I'm just learning Python and I've never shipped a game outside of Shut The Box (although I've started a few, as JoDee will attest). I'm looking forward to this contest, so wish me luck and check in on the progress of team "Burn the Training Wheels".
