2013 Game?

To take the spotlight away from the FMS issues and to focus on something more fun and lighthearted, what do you think (or hope) next year's game will be? I personally want to see a game with moving targets and/or multiple ways to score. I also want to see some type of game piece that either a) hasn't been used on a while or, b) hasn't been used at all.

Does 2013= Return of the tetras?

Ideas? Thoughts?

Re: 2013 Game?

Seeing as the just had a couple of shooting games and another racking game, I think they're going back to a stacking game.

Re: 2013 Game?

Completely agree with a stacking game.

But honestly... its too early for this.

I see what you guys mean, but I started this thread to take some of the focus of the the FMS woes right now and give people a nice, fun thread to think about and read.

Otherwise, I would have waited too.

Maybe the game this year will be stacking water filled bins...

The tetras don't look too much fun to play with. Look too complex and frustrating.

I like the past, but I want something like 2010: Original. But it should be fun to play like this year.

Re: 2013 Game?

3 words "Super Smash Brothers"

Anyone else hear the theme music playing after the introduction of lots of the presenters. Im not saying I didnt like it, I think its a clue for next years game

Also, the use of pirates of the Caribbean music was just awesome during the matches (I think during division eliminations).

Re: 2013 Game?

Could we copy and paste the entire "2012 Game" thread and scratch off anything suggested that's remotely similar to Rebound Rumble?

A lot of people noticed Smash Bros. I can see it now: "Break the targets!"

I think that the end game should be some combination of 2011 and 2012.
Why 2011? Because it was a race, and whoever won it got more points, making the endgame HUGE at every level, as opposed to this game, where, by the time you got to division finals, everyone was tripleing. But I also want the endgame to be exiting to watch, like the bridge balancing, as opposed to minibots that moved to fast to see or too slow to care.

Look past that. The World Champions and World Finalists had extremely simple grabbers. The multi-tetra grabbers were the complex ones.


Actually, I'd like to see a return of the Stack Attack bins. Or use the KOP bins as game objects. Something with bins would be quite the twist--and 10 years after Stack Attack, perfect timing.

Yes this is my opinion as well. I think the chances of having a stacking game are pretty high (unless they do something very unexpected and unique) and I would really like to see them do one.

I'd be okay with this as long as it has nothing to do with Stack Attack. Though I never played it, it kind of looked awful to me in terms of scoring complication.

I'm going to go brush up on active drive systems, and linear lift systems.

Re: 2013 Game?

I'm really hoping for tetras. An arm/elevator will be almost a sure deal, after a game that didn't require them. As always, an awesome drive train will be required to do well.

You heard it here first folks. The robot will definitely need wheels and will probably have an arm.

From what I've read, there turned out to be very little complexity at all because, since stacks were way too easy to knock over, no one actually built them. I'm not usually a big fan of the kinds of anti-defense rules FIRST has used lately, but maybe they would have helped that game or one like it...
