TBA Scavenger Hunt

“I need more robotics content” you say? Here is an excuse to devour more!

I will post a clue and you, my dear readers, will post what you think is the correct answer. The answers can come in the form of a specific robot, alliance, or match. After 24 hours, I will give correct users a point and post the next clue. All of the answers should be findable on TBA/youtube in one way or another (including the blog).

  • Clues will sit for 24 hours (ish)
  • Everyone who gets it right will receive a point
  • One guess per player
  • We’ll maybe give direction on type of answer

Your first clue:

Even when castle walls did scale
Equal armies clashing until knightly virtue did fail
And that is the end of our rubber match tale

Kudos to @Andrew_Schreiber for helping me write clues. Also he didn’t sign up for this but he is a co-host and may be making the official clue/points post from time to time.

Blue, Red, and a Palindrome,
Take on some teams who call great lakes home,
Everything’s balanced until the last call,
When the division’s decided by a big fall

This wall of maroon gambled and won
The legend of this monster came undone
A single game piece in the wrong place
Invalidated the whole lifting race

Wicked winds around did spin
Post-event discovered a gyro not plugged in
A mentor committing an evil sin
Leave an asterisk on this win

Schreiber didn’t specify the answer as a specific match and the posts were close together so you both get points

This striped member never did play
But the internet furied over its day
This arose Frank’s great friend
Though he would ask, “who’s he’s again?”

Yeah, the intent was really the entire 2012 Einstein debacle.

Noting it can be a team, a match, an alliance, or a series of matches.

(I’m expanding it to that because we’re going to run out of these clues quick at this rate)
