Does any one know why they took out the game type.(maze, collector etc.)?
the game types makes the event more complex so they will probably put it back in next year
I don't think they have taken the game type out. There is documents for 2019 for game type on https://www.soinc.org/game-b. I do not see a document for game theme though, but it is mentioned in the scoring rubric explained document there. Does anyone know if they got rid of theme or are they doing both a type and theme again?

As the rubric states "Game related to theme and type (Y/N)" I would assume that game types are still going to be used this year. It is strange how it is not mentioned in the rules, though. However, the rules do say that the scoring will be based on the rubric.

Is Game On Hard?
If you spend a ton of time on it, it'll seem really easy. If you never touch it, it'll seem really hard. The key is lots of practice! (This applies for all events.)

I would not say Game On has any particularly hard spots though.

Most importantly, practice all of the game types on every theme you can think of.

Even better, know exactly what you code for each game type, then just adapt it to the theme.

This is my experience from last year when this event was C.

They actually got rid of game types for B division. It's just themes now. Which makes it really easy to just go through a set script, but you do you, soinc; you do you.

It looks like types are back. The NSO Game On Page has a document call 2019 Game On Type Explanation.

But... game types aren't in the rules...

Unfortunately, I think 5.a. implicitly included game type by saying that the scoring will follow the online rubric which includes game type.

Why was this moved to Division B?
Events rotate around all the time. For example, Sounds of Music is in Division C now.

A more interesting question which might start a flame war is "Why was this an event in the first place?" ;)
Because all the computer science people (like me for example) were dying for an event that they could actually do. 8-) :D ;) :!:
IKR
This is so sad, can we please make source code an event
