Re: Woodie's Game Hint @ Atlanta

Obviously it has a different meaning than about the game itself.

"Watch the Stock Market"
--You'll have to buy more things, or FIRST is going to have to buy lots of things.

"Jell-o"
--Nothing has been solidified yet.

"Gerbils"
--There is going to be much more frantic action on and off the field.

"K'nex"
--K'nex has always been about shape design, different from Legos who is about form design. I'm guessing it's about new and N'ext.

Re: Woodie's Game Hint @ Atlanta

With the whole watch the stock market part of the clue, what I think is that the game piece's values change.
Like in the stock market, a value can go up or down easily, game pieces could randomly switch from positive to negative, and you have to be smart about when to remove them or something.
I think you won't just be placing game pieces, you'll be taking them off as well.

Re: Woodie's Game Hint @ Atlanta

K'nex? I love K'nex. I've got a great big tub up in the attic, probably around 15,000 pieces or so (big ball factory + space tower + 3 or 4 different kits)

I, however, will try not bang my head over it until they release the official clue. Then let the smashing begin .

Re: Woodie's Game Hint @ Atlanta

So Gerbils are now an accepted method of power the robot. I hope teams bring spares

I also would not recommend shipping the gerbils with the robot.

There are special instructions for shipping the batteries - I don't see why there can't be special instructions for shipping gerbils. Maybe you'll have to include air holes with a gore-tex liner so the gerbils don't get wet but can still breathe, and design a time-release feeder so your gerbils don't get fat in storage. For those teams in climates with extreme weather (hot or cold) you'll have to make a rig to cool or warm your gerbils.

I hope FIRST lets us know soon if Gerbils will be included so we can get to work on these life support systems...

Maybe game is just shipping the gerbils to Atlanta. Whichever team gets the gerbils there in the best condition wins.

Of course I not sure what the bot would be for then

Re: Woodie's Game Hint @ Atlanta

the gerbils dont exactly have to be gerbils. i think they suggest a moving object that we have to grab and score with. and the stock market goes up and down so it could suggest a moving thing that we have to score on. and the jello it could be a new arena made out of jelly like material

Re: Woodie's Game Hint @ Atlanta

I am predicting green glowing jello on the back of the gerbils. This could lead to some very exciting camera usage with moving targets.


P.S. no gerbils were harmed in the making of this picture

Re: Woodie's Game Hint @ Atlanta

personally i think that the game object will be some irregular shape that is not a perfect cube, square, or triangle.

as for the first logo there is no pattern, i have researched this and all of them except about 4 games are involving balls.
