Conspiracy?

So, I was thinking (dangerous, I know). I was reminiscing with students about last year's championship and the cool band that played. If I remember right, it was a......Steampunk themed band....Did we get a hint of the 2017 game without knowing it??? Was this intended???

Re: Conspiracy?

I do believe you are onto something. What's great about FIRST is that they always give very minor hints in everything they do! I bet right after the first few regional events, some of the people in charge are definitely going to be thinking about the next years' game.

Re: Conspiracy?

The game hasn't really even been discussed until after champs.. Its possible a handful of people had a steampunk theme in mind, but the game, rules, name, and theme are not decided until well after champs. Unfortunately, were just looking at a coincidence here.

It may have been that way in the past. But I heard that they begin working on concepts 2 or even 3 years out now. That's just what I heard, not from a definitive source. Do you have a more definitive source?

I know for a fact that when I reffed in FLL at World Festival several years ago, Scott Evans had to look up rules when he was asked about them. Because he was living in next year's game, not this year's.

frank specifically stated that is not the case, and that they can barely keep up with the current years game, let alone next year's.

It wouldn't be a conspiracy if it wasn't denied...

In St Louis they had a mad scientist band. Not sure if that was the case in Houston.

Houston had trashcan banging, and somewhat of the same sort of mad scientist "hype" band.
