Re: Rule Debates

After the rule debates about expansion at the weekend with Team Effort and Team Antivate, I was told that it didn't say in the rules that an expanding robot (or any robot for that matter) had to start in the configuration in which it fits within the four inch cube size limits. It most certainly doe...

Re: Walker rule clarification? Unusual design.

@Antroboteer Thanks Dave, not meant to be a definitive opinion; agreed I could have worded that better. Thanks for pointing that out.

Re: Walker rule clarification? Unusual design.

Without the bristles in that scenario, there would be no movement from the robot; the bristles are the moving legs. It's like saying walkers like Drumbledore aren't walkers because they use a motor which rotates more than 180 degrees spinning a cam shaft which would not make sense. I would classify ...
