Re: pic: 2007 Game Piece Hint

Ok, I know this is going to sound wierd, but that is exactly what I expected this year's game piece to be after the game hint came out.
PVC game pieces....Return of the Tetras!

Re: pic: 2007 Game Piece Hint

That actually could be a very interesting object to manipulate… ya know what would really be fun? If you had objects similar to those on the field that were of different colors, you could pick up both colors but your robot would have to autonomously sort the two different colors into two different holdings area's of the robot. Somehow at the end of the match you would be scored on how many objects you had and if you correctly separated them.

Re: pic: 2007 Game Piece Hint

I hear that Dave has about 116 of these buried behind his garage. Each one contains a 1/2 dozen Krispy Kremes.

This year... do don't want "Dave says That's Pimp" buttons... we want sealed KK capsules, autographed by Dave.

Right?!? Who wants one? If I am lucky enough to get one, it's getting buried in my back yard for safe keeping.

Re: pic: 2007 Game Piece Hint

I'd be happy to taste test the donuts to make sure they're not poisoned by some kind of Mars microbe. You know, just as a security precaution. I'll take one (or a few half-dozens) for the team!

Re: pic: 2007 Game Piece Hint

Now, he was overheard muttering something about designing a game around that piece. Since he always seems to be muttering, I wouldn't take it seriously... except for that smile... that smile is kind of evil... and he said he would do it if he ever did this...

Heidi

p.s would it really be possible to make those pieces larger and then fill them with a liquid or sand that would swish back and forth as moved and if so, would that change the balance that much?

Re: pic: 2007 Game Piece Hint

Wait, something here tells me this has to do with Herndon's bot....
Those PVC "capsules" look about right for rolling a ball, and in that second pic, that extension-looking device sitting next to him looks like it'd fit a pile of those down it to roll balls...
Sounds kinda like our loading and conveyor system:

Hmm...just a thought...

Re: pic: 2007 Game Piece Hint

I know what that really is... Dave is working on either a very powerful sedative for those students that are driving him nuts after almost 5 weeks or a mega dose of valium for some of the advisors

Either way, it looks hard to swallow... (I'm making an assumption its a oral medication... ) Maybe next year we need to make a shrink machine! Or we continue with the shooter idea and next year is something vaguely bullet shaped...

Re: pic: 2007 Game Piece Hint

Perhaps the game piece is not the object being held, but rather the person that is holding it.
