Re: No official FIRST game hint yet??

Remember guys, FIRST is running low on money, they build more fields this year and last year, so I don't think we will see anything different from the rectangle design with four driver positions at each end.

Re: No official FIRST game hint yet??

<me> looks at 76 posts and 6 pages worth of more rumors... </me>

Ughh.. what have I started? I was trying to see why no OFFICIAL FIRST E-MAIL hints have been dropped yet, and I get talk of very vague (if any) hints that seem to be stretching on FIRST hint quality..

I guess we can't have a hint (like drums?) or 70's song lyrics, or a math formula every year.

Sorry Brandon... Didn't mean to make another Rumor thread...

These crazy ChiefDelphi.com members... What can I say???

Re: No official FIRST game hint yet??

I talked to Dean Kamen this weekend at the FLL Event in Enfield, Connecticut. Trying to get a simple hint from him was like trying to squeeze water from a rock. He simply smiled, put his hand on my shoulder, and said "be patient! You'll have to wait. I guarantee you're going to love the challenge this year...."

Talking Re: No official FIRST game hint yet??

The game will be one one one one.

3-4-5 is a right triangle.

The winning team will get the score of the hypotenuse, unless they decide a low score wins this year.

And the robot dimension requirements will be a vertical triangular prism, causing all robots to look like cheese wedges, because cheese is nothing like donuts.

Hey, wait a minute, I AM John Neun! I haven't seen anyone mention it yet, but I know a learned and erudite guy like Mr. Lavery would know that our name means "9" in German.

Leading us astray but the clues are still there. The numbers 5 and 6 are visible in Johns picture. The plot thickens.

Re: No official FIRST game hint yet??

Well as I see it, John Neun's head is round and shinny like bowling ball, that means we are using bowling balls this year. Like his father, JVN will soon have the advantage of his head resembling a game object.

Well, JVN still has a little bit of hair. Maybe it'll be an astroturf field?

Re: No official FIRST game hint yet??

Mr. Nuen sir, is it not true that you enjoy Donuts for Dessert?!!?!? AHA!!

This V thing is pointing in the same direction as the first 2 clues, 5 teams per alliance. 4 on the field at a time. See 2001 rules.

A giant sloped 48' field because the V is missing?!?!? ugh.... You guys need to watch more CSI or something....

Poor Mr. Nuen got sucked into this thing, all unsuspecting. Now he's going to be lurked upon. But unless he makes donuts with that big machine of his, I'm not biting...

Re: No official FIRST game hint yet??

Wait! That's right! John has a brother, which he mentioned in this thread.

That means there THREE J. (V- optional) Neuns. ... TWO of which are John (V- optional) Neuns. 2 + 3 = 5!

Re: No official FIRST game hint yet??

I agree with a couple predictions made so far.

I'm pretty sure Mr. Neun and Johnny Neun (the baseball player) are red herrings. I think Dave was referring to JVN and left the "V" out intentionally.

Well, When I look at John Neun, I see 2 things. First, there's the letter "V" between those names. Second, I see 1997's inner tubes in the background. This (and Dave's previous "eat dessert first" comment, which could refer to the inner tube's doughnut shape) leads me to believe that we will have to put the inner tubes onto V-shaped goals.

Also, no one has mentioned this yet:

Re: No official FIRST game hint yet??

Four posts, that means four physical posts, for scoring, blocking, whatever. Add that to the donuts at the VA science center clue, then the JVN clue, and the eat desert first post.

I'd say we should expect to see rings of some sort, inflatable, metal, whatever, and some sort of dowls or posts to put them on or remove them from.

Question is, how does Dave's infared post relate to this game?

Each of the 2 V-shaped goals (4 posts, get it?) will have IR beacons to make it possible to score in autonomous mode.
