This part got me confused. When you say nothing in between, do you mean a concept similar to a jack (like the game jacks)?
If yes, then that can be very difficult to stack. The best I could think of is how tall the unorganized pile of tetra-jacks there are.
If no (they are like usual tetras), then you could probably stack them on different pillars.
Scoring would be…
Low pillar (8): 2 + 2t
Medium pillar (4): 4 + 4t
High pillar (2): 8 + 8t
t = number of tetras
this is for a vex game and what i ment was the object would be made of just poles not a solid object like the boxes in “stack attack” but like the tetras where they could be grabbed and on the field already is a zone primarly for stacking that has poles that the scoring object can be stacked upon
Jacks were mentioned earlier, why not use them? They can be stacked (albeit it is difficult) They are also readily available in a variety of sizes and materials. Specify a size and a material and they should be relatively easy to get a hold of. As an additional benefit, you can stack them in different ways. The balls could also be used somehow too (since you buy them usually together)
This one is cheap, good size for Vex, stackable (though likely unstable after a few in height), and it has a nice open loop on top. They are also easy to paint for point differentiators, and can be useful/annoying once the season is over.
thanks for specs and like i said that really is a good idea for a game element and i think that it could be implemented very well thanks for the cool idea i may have to use that one because i haven’t seen anything like it and i try to have a somewhat original idea when im designing a game.
you are very right FIRST does need more COWBELL!!!
