    Last year there was an area of the obstacle course with marbles and points were deducted for disturbing them, I don’t see anything mentioned in the rules about this kind of “non-disturbance” objective, does this mean that this won’t be a part of the course this year ? Or does it mean you reserve the right to elaborate the rules sneakily on the day 😉

    The obstacles are secret up to the day. Further rules for each obstacle will be given then.

    Yeah I was a bit pissed off about the marbles. I know we are not meant to know what is in the course, but the rules should at least cover such occurrences if they arrive.

    See the ‘hints’ section.

    We wouldn’t be able to come up with advance rules for ANY eventuality. However, the hints on the Obstacle challenge page may contain clues as to what is best in terms of robot design

    What I am getting at is that the rules should have hinted that points may be deducted for ‘lack of dexterity’ or something like that.
