The rules, for the newbies.

And the picture:

As always, the deadline is nominally Sunday at midnight Eastern.

Go!

Lightning scares cats onto goats. The zebras are trying to figure out why this is before the bumblebees ask what’s taking so long.

That other alliance is soooo mad! We better hide behind these winning robots.

You want me to WHAT?

You need to stick your head in there.

Are you CRAZY? I’l get crushed!

How else are we going to see if there’s a sliver of carpet between the robot wheels and the tape?

After the match, the refs looked everywhere for 1444’s bumpers, but they couldn’t find any trace of them. It was almost as if they had never existed at all…

Oh no, I dropped my glasses. I can’t safety without my glasses!

Here’s proof that the Mars lander is NOT on Mars. It’s wearing number 1444 as a disguise.

We better hide, I hear Andy Baker is behind this wall.

(one of the best days of my life)

Head referee [eyes covered] 3… 2… 1… Ready or not here I come!

It appears like the refs are measuring how high the robots are off the ground in order to score points, but they are actually doing something much different.
The venue staff told the refs that they suspected teams were sneaking in outside food. They wanted the refs to do everything possible to find out if any team actually was, and this was the result. All robots were inconspicuously checked for contraband food in this manner.
The only food they found was robot food–also known as electrons, partially eaten 2020 game pieces, and a side sad-lad made of 10:1 VP stages under too much load.

“31, 32, 33…”

“Stop!, just stop. It’s 30, 45, 60.”

Well, unfortunately, it appears that the robot on the bottom was carrying another vehicle without a commercial driver’s license, and it got stopped by a referee. They’re on a dark road. What’s next, tailgating? Not stopping at a red light?? Failing to yield the right of way???

I guess point inflation over the years is not too bad. Only a five point increase in the ability to have two robots balanced without touching the ground.

Monty Rack n’ Roll and the Holy Keeper Inner Tube, Scene 8.

[After being repelled by the fiendish Safety Advisors, while hiding behind a few robots]

REFEREE: Fiends! I’ll tear them apart!

ANDY BAKER: No, no. No, no.

BILLFRED: Sir! I have a plan, sir.

[Cue in the Mighty Trojan LRI]

After searching for a missing left handed screwdriver for ten minutes, the refs were starting to feel a little suspicious.
