Re: 2011 Game Hint #1

both of Little Eva's albums have to do with trains, The Loco-Motion, and Back on Track. Lavery's summer picture shows a trip to the trainyard. Put the 2 together and you have kind of the like the lunacy game, in that you probably will hauling around a "trailer train". As for the game pieces, the trailers could be the game pieces, so the team that has the most trailers hooked on, wins the match. Just a thought...

All I know is that I'm gonna sit back, enjoy my Haagen Dazs, and listen to Eva. It is very fun to speculate with you guys!

Re: 2011 Game Hint #1

Something to consider about Penn Station is the copious use of columns in its original construction. There's also a lot of interesting info on the wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pennsyl...2.80.931963.29 Including that fact that Penn station has been in operation for just over 100 years and one month.

Wink Re: 2011 Game Hint #1

I'm guessing the challenge is to stack rectangular bars up on the columns look here in this picture title: http://people.csail.mit.edu/hanna/Egypt/index20.html

Re: 2011 Game Hint #1

Well, I was thinking. Little Eva is a human, and humans are mostly made of... WATER!
Also, she sang locomotion... and what's sort of power is used? Steam Power! Steam is the gaseous form of what liquid? WATER!

All roads lead to a water game.

Re: 2011 Game Hint #1

The game might be about stacking bars atop of the columns, this hint is just like the hint from lunacy where they gave a fish called the "moon fish" but here its about the column and what its used for. maybe they mean as in the way they would set up the columns to create buildings. this game might be one in which we must stack something

I feel like this is along the right track, pardon the pun.
But putting two and two together, there has been a lot of hits towards trains.
the game peice I doubt will be round this year, how many years has it been since it's been something other than round? perhaps it may be a "trailer"
hmmmm sooo many possiblities

Re: 2011 Game Hint #1

A student team member pointed out that is a picture of Little Eva. She had a hit dance song Loco Motion that was a later covered by another group. It is pointed out that the picture is a cover picture and it is reversed. Lettering is also missing.

Maybe we will be doing a brand new dance.

Question Re: 2011 Game Hint #1

what i think is that it may have something to do also with some of the other people that recorded this song
some of the others that recorded this song are:Grand Funk Railroad, Dave Stewart and Barbara Gaskin, Kylie Minogue (who had very big success with it worldwide), Sylvie Vartan, and La Toya Jackson

what really to me stood out of all of these was Kylie Minogue
so im not sure if that could help, but yeah thats what i came up with so far based on the song Locomotion

Re: 2011 Game Hint #1

Someone awhile back posted that EVA is NASA's term for "EXTRAVEHICULAR ACTIVITY"

Thought #1 FIRST likes to keep NASA happy - they give us funding.
Thought #2 FIRST has a big push for FTC to grow.
Thought #3 FIRST is giving FRC teams a discount if they start a FTC team.
Thought #4 FIRST Choice has FTC parts as one of the choices.

In keeping with the train idea, what if the FRC robot had to tow a small FTC size robot? - In which clue #2 will hopefully tell us what the small robot needs to do.
