Re: 2018 Game Speculation

I'm hoping for less theming, especially of the "only people already in robotics will get this" type. I'm expecting this trend to continue. MST3000, here we come!

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

Won't be a TOTE
Won't be a recycle bin
Won't be a heavy Boulder sized ball
Won't be frame wrecking defense crossings
Won't be a 5" whiffle ball
Won't be a 10" Gear

...based game

It will be anything else, and decided after this season is in the can. They don't even know what it is.
I will make one prediction ...audience participation will return

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

-End game is some kind of balance objective. (Balance beam or see-saw.)
-Larger game pieces, less of them.
-Scoring game pieces does not happen on the ends of the field. (Center or sides.)
-Manipulation of a complex shape. (like a tetrahedron)

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

I'm calling big balls again, a la 2014 and 2010. Other than that, a theme again, mostly flat field without many obstacles, and probably a ton of defense and contact.

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

I'm predicting something in like the nuclear age, it seems like a natural progression of theme to me, going from medieval, to more industrial, and then to the nuclear age, then maybe 2019 is like technology like computer chips? Perhaps we will have Atoms as game pieces or something? I am more set on the idea of a nuclear game as opposed to what it actually is.

I was thoroughly expecting to be Rick Roll'd, but that was more entertaining.


2018 will feature denim jeans as game objects with a denim shirt end game.
