I would feel more comfortable if you used rock-paper-scissor-lizard-Spock.
Thanks

And if that doesn't work have a 3D chess match to the death.

Re: IRI - Dates, Info and Rule Ideas

I have to plug the BattleCry@WPI game modification. Not to say it's gotta be the same, but putting the coop bridge to good use during eliminations was a positive addition to the game.

But that makes the triple balance much less important if there are alternative bridge points for the third robot. Did you find that it made a difference?

The way BattleCry did it was to put 4 12-inch circles ("dots")on the center bridge. Each was worth 5 points if it was completely covered by a robot. The bridge didn't need to be balanced, and 2 opposing alliances could each cover one or 2 dots at the same time. It was possible for a robot to cover 2 dots for 10 points.

So in the case of there being a double-balance plus 2 dots on the center, that would be 30 points, which would be 10 less than a triple balance. Triples will be much more likely at IRI than BattleCry. In fact, I don't think there were any at BattleCry, though several attempted (one stinger went all bendy!)

I would think that making a center-balanced bridge worth 10 points is a bit too much (too close to negating the beautiful triple), but if it were worth 5 points, or if 10 points were available through precise control somehow (basket from center bridge perhaps?)...

Just somehow, really, making the center bridge worth something in eliminations, is all I'm suggesting.
