2007 Official FRC Game Hint / Email Blast

“Hi, I am Louis. I have liked this number ever since i was little. You guys know that 2 and 3 is 5, and 4 and 1 is 5 too. Ah the number 5 is so smooth.”

No clue here…

No plateau on my 5. But there is a percent symbol.

Maybe you are 5% right? :stuck_out_tongue: :wink:

We’re already done with the 2006 game - that was Aim High. They’re going to kick off the 2007 game on Saturday. :wink:

P.S. Here’s the original thread from which that spotlight was from. http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/showthread.php?p=399886#post399886 :wink:

I have a little plateau.
edit: (5 is also in the center surrounded by the other numbers, creating a square.)

With all the little people and the plateau, volcano - I can’t help but think of an old movie, Close Encounters of The Third Kind, with Richard Dreyfuss. He made one out of mashed potatoes. When they begin try to communicate, they use a bar with lights and sounds (5 tones) - I don’t have the correct terminology but it is way cool.

I haven’t read the whole thread so this might have been said before, but there’s definitely a fish in the lower right hand corner…



Why would there be water on the field? come on people think. they would not have water on the field for a few safety reasons.

That was my first thought when Elgin said volcano.
And on the topic of Close Encounters, my friend Nikki just got those 5 tones for her text message ringtone.

I have a lot of thoughts that needed to be spewed out. Some of them are:

  1. If there was a banana in the old hint the first thing I thought of was slipping. Maybe if there were circular platforms may they make it so it’s hard to get on top?

  2. With the new clue, I see the faces that looks like a crowd… I see a fish at the bottom right. But is it just me or is there a face in the bottom left hand corner? Looks like 2 eyes an open mouth a hat and a bearded sillohuette. Looks like something from a cartoon. Please tell me I’m not the only one that sees it.

These are just some thoughts right now, I will post if I have any other things on my mind. Hope this brings up good conversation!

I agree that this may be an update, probably to sharpen certain things that hadn’t popped out earlier. If so, there is the possibility that they would change other things as well, hiding a message in the picture. I would bet that they might use steganograpy (credit goes to Mazin). All of the links to the old picture are low, so if someone is sure that they have the original, please post it. That way we have both of them here to compare…

Guys…we have recieved an updated clue…
look at the update date…January 2nd…

The new one shows a few more things that i have noticed…
there are 2 crowds: top left and center right’ as people have already mentioned

AND…i have got a pruff that robots WILL NOT be stationary…
loo at the top right cornet, there’s a wheel there…that sais it all

that object that looks like a wheel in the upper right corner also looks like an alien face, with a hood on it if you look at it. Sorry guys but im just talking out of my a$$!

Hmmm… My friend and I just looked at the old picture and the new picture… And it seems to be the same, I can see all of the things before… Or are we looking at the wrong picture?

At the very least FIRST put a larger image up. The size changed from 600 x 449 to 800 x 600 pixels. With this change more details are showing up in the image.

I have noticed that the diamond plate disc is reflecting red and blue light.

I think Joe DiMaggio, or “the Yankee Clipper”, was number five for the Yankees. But what does that have to do with anything?

All I have to say is “Speed Racer”???:smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

So maby the game has to deal a lot with speedness in the game?

I think a more likely guess in that vane of thinking would be third base.

Have they came out with the list of what etquitment we need to build the feild.

they usually release that information the week of kickoff


Our team thinks we have an idea:

The five looks like it is from POOL ball.

The backround looks like water: Maybe a POOL as a clue for POOL balls?

Anyway, just an idea. :slight_smile:

The past few years, the parts list came out the thursday before kickoff, so in effect: maybe tomorrow.

**Bill of Materials

**This season, each team’s decision regarding building field mockups may be a bit more complex than normal. The Game Design Committee feels
that an advance Bill of Materials (BOM) list might be misleading and cause some teams to buy more materials than they will likely use.

Please wait for a full set of field drawings and their lower cost equivalents to be released immediately following Kickoff. Knowing the nature of this year’s challenge, you can more logically decide what to buy and build.

See you at Kickoff!
