Re: 2012 Game Piece breakthrough hint!

I googled 2012 for major anniversaries. Turns out it's the Titanic's 100 year anniversary - game piece is a ship or an iceberg maybe?

Re: 2012 Game Piece breakthrough hint!

2012 has been designated Alan Turing year for the 100th year after his birth by the Turing Centenary Advisory Committee. I wonder if the GDC had his extraordinary achievements in mind for the 2012 game.

They do that, they better get rid of the "no metal on carpet" rule--metal is one of the best things to use on real regolith when you're trying to drive around on it.

If we use a telegraph or anything related to it, I will be greatly surprised.

Yes, it would be an awesome opportunity.

I think the GDC has always had extraordinary achievements in mind for all of the participants and their supporters. Committed problem solvers can create extraordinary achievements. The game is the door that opens to the world of possibility; it's up to the participants and their supporters to understand that and step through the door.

They are clearing space for the nanotubes we'll be using next year. FRC robots are too big. We need to get these kids working on the cutting edge!

Great a game in which 3000 robots are trying to find me and place an egg in the backpack.
