Anyone ever done the Sock Wars?

Has anyone here ever participated in the Sock Wars? 

I'm tempted as I've done socks before but I'm nervous about getting a pattern that could get me "killed".  I have good reason to fear this.  The last pair of socks I made involved a pattern where it took me six (6) attempts to start the first one (the 6th attempt being one of my knitting teachers).  I started the second successfully by myself.  I can see myself getting something with 3 or 4 colors or a toe-up construction, which I've never done.

Any thoughts?
