Chainmail? I need to get me some of that stuff...

The first floor holds FIRST Place, the public area where they hold events such as summer camps and training sessions. The offices are on the second floor and are smaller than you probably think. The Engineering area, where they design and prototype the game, is in a super secret secure area in the basement.

Aha! The basement! Super secret rocks. That's like super soakers only better.

I'll have to go back sometime when it isn't cold and I can look around. It is so beautiful. Thank you for the photo and the information, Carol!

Re: Is It a Hint or Not?

why do the bots need to be in the water?
what if it is a dry arena floor, but there is a pool in the center.
the bots might need to fish something out, or get something in to a target in the pool.

Think out side to but while following the rules--- not to mention how bad it would be if the bots got wet

Re: Is It a Hint or Not?

If there was water in the game (which there isn't), I'd want it t be the game element, where you had to score water and get a certain water level or whatever.

Re: Is It a Hint or Not?

Or maybe game pieces filled with water? Imagine a sealed container 1/2 filled with water that is the game piece. That would present some interesting challenges.

Who said anything about it only being half full? It might be 1/4 or 3/4, and you don't know how full it really is... (This idea has already been presented, so it's not my fault if it comes up in a game.)

As a veteran volunteer on field setup...

Oh boy, and I hated listening to those darn air pumps inflating tubes and balls.

I just cringe at the thought of standing around with a garden hose filling game pieces with water.

Now Jello on the other hand...

Yes Yes Yes! I've thought of this before too! Because it would be heavy and awkward to handle, since the sloshing of the water inside would change the center of gravity and give odd momentum when stopping or trying to turn. Of course they would make them waterproof and fill them with stuff that isn't conductive (although, that might be expensive).

Re: Is It a Hint or Not?

Jane, look up the address on Google maps, it'll give you a feel for the neighborhood. They even have the street-level view, you can "drive" by the place and see the front door. Looks like a nice place.

Re: Is It a Hint or Not?

Definition of Pool: an organization of people or resources that can be shared; "a car pool"; "a secretarial pool"; "when he was first hired he was assigned to the pool"

It seems that this could also suggest some sort of game element that is shared among teams on the field. This is pretty much the definition of a game element, so perhaps they're more shared? As in: "All game elements are shared, but some game elements are more shared than others"
