Ok so I'm pretty good with Scratch, but I have no idea how good the other kids in my group are good with it. I might maybe have to do a quick overview of how to code with Scratch... Any ideas?
Poyo! (^-^)

I would say go over the basics of algorithmic thinking, and then introduce the blocks of code one category at a time
Ok this is epic 8-)

I posted a good guide of basic scratch blocks on the wiki: [wiki]Game On/Scratch Blocks[/wiki].

Otherwise, practice, practice, practice. The Scratch community has lots of good (albeit highly complicated) projects.

regarding the game type issue,
i remember seeing a 2019 game types document on soinc.org, but it seems to be removed.
it also doesn't say anything about game types in the rubrics or rules?
so are game types still a thing for div B or is it just game themes?
idk what to put here so i'll just type something cringey random!

Assuming that its not on the rules, I don't think game types are a thing anymore because it got really hard to make game types. And then they'd combine game types at nationals as well.

I mean, I can't make a maze where the theme is biology. Theres like no scientific concept there

I always preferred to use my own mouse. I would always just ask the event supervisor if I could use my own. If I could, then great. If I can't, then it's not that big of a deal.

Hi, new to GameOn.

Question: In the competitions, do they allow participants to use the inbuilt sprites/sounds/backgrounds that scratch already provides? I'm referring to the "default library". The rules say no internet assets are allowed, which I understand. Curious if scratch's own library can be used or if participants need to draw their own?

Thanks

I believe you can, though you're expected to draw your own for points.
