3a says the mousetrap locations will be marked before the device starts. That implies it is measured at the starting position.robodude wrote:How are the mousetraps moving going to be scored?
It says in the rules that there's a 2pt. penalty for every 1cm that the mousetrap is off....
Is that BEFORE the contraption starts, or after ie. if the mousetraps bounces when it's set off?
Also 3c line 5 says the mousetraps cannot become unshielded projectiles. Based on the powerpoint on the SO website, they show examples of the traps being taped to cardboard or something (not the floor also prohibited by 3c line 5)
