The individual tournament determines whether online or offline Scratch is used. You should either contact the tournament director or ask your coach to do so.

For invitationals, they said that we can make any TYPE of game we want as long as it related to the scientific theme so can we make games that are state or national level? If we do will we get penalized or lose points please help me thank you. :geek: :geek: :geek: :geek: :geek:

Yes, you can make games using higher level types as long as it follows the scientific theme. No, you will not get penalized or lose points.

They should have you do it on the offline editor, but for our invitational, we used the online one just without logging in.

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 ;) :!:


there are people that don't do work and now they are freeing up space for the people that actually try to do work in other events bcus they doin game on now :idea:

Based on what Unome said a page ago, it depends on the tournament. You should ask your coach.

Do you mean in this event? I have no idea what Kidoyo is and it's definitely not being used in Game On. This event is where you have to make a game with a certain theme in Scratch in a certain amount of time. You can ask people about events on all the different sub-forums, but go read the rules manual first!

Yeah, you really should only practice for Game On with the program known as Scratch.

Wait, hold on. I thought the only 3 types of games that could be used for invitational and regional were avoidance, collection, and maze.

That was only last year. This year they removed that restriction on game type, so you can make any type of game.

I'm looking for some Game On tests to complete.
Of course, by "test" I mean a subject and game type that I can base a game off of.
