The 2009 Beyond Botball FAQ

This post is the home of the 2009 Beyond Botball FAQ. Updates and rules clarifications will be posted here. If you have questions that you would like addressed, leave them in a comment to this post or send an email to matthew.oelke@kipr.org . Check back for the latest information

1. The Game Rules for Beyond Botball link to a source for the golf balls ("government funds"). The link indicates that the item has been discontinued. Do you have a suggestion for an alternative source?
These should be a suitable replacement:

http://shop.callawaygolf.com/Balls/Top-Flite_Golf_Balls/XL_Distance_Yellow_(15_Pack).html


2. Does Botguy sit lightly on the top and blocking the golf balls or is he wedged in between the pipes?
Botguy is positioned gently atop the PVC so that if you lift him up the golf balls roll down the PVC and on to the table.


3. Does the infrastructure have an outer CLEARANCE (as stated) or an outer HEIGHT of 14"?
It has an outer HEIGHT of 14"


4. If it is an outer HEIGHT, does that mean that the central HEIGHT is about 10"?
Yes.


5. In the infrastructure, where the two modified T-connectors meet, is there a hidden PVC pipe that goes between the two modified T-connectors, holding them together?
Yes, the 1" PVC listed on the parts list.


6.Disregarding the super structure for Botguy and the golf balls, is the game board for Beyond Botball 2009 the same as the game board for regular Botball, except for the hill rising only 3 inches instead of 6 inches. Are the black lines the same and the starting box the same?
Yes, exactly.
