Laundry Quandary (2006)
2006 Logo The objective of this year’s game is to build a remotely controlled device to retrieve “dry” laundry from clotheslines and place “wet” laundry on the clotheslines within a 3-minute time limit. Dry laundry must be placed into a laundry basket by the end of the round to score, and wet laundry must be hung on the clotheslines above the robot to score. Hanging wet laundry in multiple quadrants will earn a team bonus points. Scoring a piece of wet laundry and a piece of dry laundry will also result in a bonus score.
