Hello, everyone! (And mainly KIPR)

I'm not sure this is the best place to put this, but I had an idea for a future game/board so I thought I would share it. So this can be a thread for new ideas from everyone.

Maybe we could do a "retro" game where it brings the best elements of previous years into one game.

Any other suggestions?

I would love to see tribble stacks come back. (ie 2008 with three red on bottom, one green on top) I think they do a great job of providing easy points to new teams, while allowing more points for complex mechanical sorting algorithms. I think the botball community as a whole had them figured out by 2008, but the class of 2014 were just 6th graders that year, and 2015 has never seen them.

If, as KIPR's Facebook photos suggest, they're bringing back PVC nests for the 2013 season, that would certainly qualify as retro -- they haven't been in Botball since 2003. I guess we'll all find out tomorrow....
