2012 Game Piece breakthrough hint!

According to the website, Logomotion tubes are on closeout at AndyMark.

This must mean that the 2012 game is using ... something else!

In years past, that have meant one game piece was eliminated from consideration, but because of the way Logomotion was, that's four game pieces (red triangles, white circles, yellow circles, blue squares) we won't be using! By continuing this simple process of elimination, we're sure to figure out the 2012 game pieces, and the game can't be far behind!

If we all work together, I'm confident we can solve this by February.

(by the way, we could be using white/blue/yellow triangles, red/blue circles, or red/yellow/white squares, so don't discount those.)

Re: 2012 Game Piece breakthrough hint!

I too am confident that we can figure this out by February. I am so confident we can figure this out I predict we figure it out in January. Perhaps even the first Saturday after New years. But maybe I shouldn't narrow it down to a specific day.

Sorry had to do it.

Re: 2012 Game Piece breakthrough hint!

At WMRI (West Michigan Robotics Invitational) teams could take home some tubes if they would like to. One possibility down and infinity left to eliminate.

Same thing happened at GRITS.... I have an Ubertube and Blue Square hanging on my bedroom wall

I think it's safe to eliminate all tubes as game elements.... otherwhise you have a repeate of this years' game in a different way.... unless they pull FIRST Frenzy out and rehash it.... That would be quite a strategic game, actually.

I'm going out on a limb here, but I predict they will not be using any Yugos in next year's game...

Well I don't know. That would be a typical hard-to-obtain piece. "Whaddaya mean, the manufacturer isn't making them any more?"

I think the Yugos broke more often than the tubes.

Seems to me that I recall that cry for 'Orbit Balls' a few years ago. That shouldn't be the reason for discounting the Yugo.

No, that wasn't the cry for the Orbit Balls. The cry for those was "Whaddaya mean the distributor isn't carrying them anymore? Whaddaya mean their factory is shut down until Chinese New Year?" They were still being made, just not in time to get them over here until near the end of build season--and some large distributor had decided to stop carrying them.

Re: 2012 Game Piece breakthrough hint!

Taylor,

Since the AM page link is "http://www.andymark.com/category-s/234.htm" I don't think we should rule out the usage of old Cyber Blue robots as game pieces. How many of those old machines do they have anyway? Yes, you can include practice robots in the count for the weekends with a lot of events. Yes, you may also reserve Chris Fultz for Einstein.

Re: 2012 Game Piece breakthrough hint!

I believe it would be safe to add Planets, LHC's, and Unicorns to the list. Also, oil... because it's a water game... and oil and water don't mix...

Except that's the point. You need to scoop out the Oil and dump it into the Alliance Drums and cap it with the Lid. Don't forget you can lift the alliance Drum out of the Water Arena and hang it on the Rack at the end of the game to score a x2 bonus.

Unless, of course, the entire green alliance is hanging on the rack first. Then they get the bonus instead.

ah yes. good call.

Hopefully the g-forces involved won't make it difficult for the rookie teams, but I expect that thanks to the added Turbo Encabulator to the kit of parts will help maintain a well-rounded field of Super Alliances.
