Questions about the game that aren't answered in the manual

I so far, have one question. That being how many cubes can fit in the square goal zone, not stacked.(not the rectangle that can fit two) I haven’t set up my field yet, and have heard it’s four, but also heard one. Does anyone know the answer to this?

The game manual includes the size and dimensions of the zones and game pieces.

The answer is one cube.

ah, ok thank you for the help. Didn’t see that.

So the rectangle holds two without being stacked. Is that what you wanted confirmation on?

I needed confirmation on the square, not rectangle.

So if you look in the manual you can see the dimensions of the square and you know the dimensions of the cube. Ahh sniped by @mattjiang

haha.

@Doctortictac but for future reference, please do a little bit of research before asking a question like this on the forums, a lot of these answers are actually in the manual.

Yes the square can only hold one cube, however if you’re team is the only one in your alliance to do the auton and you’re only doing one stack you should stack into the sqauare goal zone as there is more margin for error.

technically you could fit more that 1 stack if you balanced 2 stacks on top of 1 base cube, but for practical purposes, you only have 3 slots. one in the unprotected goal zone, 2 in the protected goal zone.

Ok. Thanks! 20characters

I have another question, What is the weight of the cubes?

that would be however very difficult

So searching in the forum will give you other times this has been asked, you are number 8.

Thank you foster, I have been trying to find this out for a while because when I weighed one myself I got 12 ounces and I wanted to double check.

Thought of a q: I dont think it’s in the manual unless I missed it twice. Can a robot play defense on you while you’re in your goal zone scoring a stack?

That is in the manual for sure! Search for protected zone and you’ll find what you are looking for. (Page 21)
