An old topic revived and reversed. The inspiration is a real-life contest in MIT very similar to this.
Try to make YOUR side of the rail touch the ground!
45 Piece max for each side.
Only build on your side, within the large blue-edged box (above and below the rail).
Do not touch the green static circle in the upper left-hand corner, or the falling objects. You may grab the edge of the floor.
Do not edit or connect to the platform or your opponent's contraption.
No more than 10 rods stacked.
You win if your side of the rail touches the ground. In case of deadlock/sweep, the lower side wins.
Right side bot may not make the left stage force through the green circle.
Other than that, anything goes.
Here's the arena and the first bot:http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10252152
