Can't tell... looks a little out.
Judges??

Here's a Mind the Gap with fewer pieces than SockHolder and fewer left in the goal than NightStryke:

What he's saying is that it beats SockFolder's in overall pieces, and mine in pieces left in the goal. So, I guess it'd go in-between? (i.e. SockFolder's is 28/0, his is 13/1, and mine is 4/2.)

Except that when it comes to the goal area the border does not count.

It looks to me like the only reason it gets the goal is because it bounces slightly, but when it comes to rest it's out.

I took a wheel and rod out of your design, making it a 28 piece champion. I still give complete credit to you though. :).

Also, does this meet the qualifications? A tweaked version not my own!

I agree with NightStryke. I thought it was the bounce, but I can't be sure.
I'm giving it to mnielsen's 1215563 since it's his idea and also it's the 1st one definitely in.

junkyard in 18/4


Just started cutting away pieces from your design to see how low I could get it.

11 pieces: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1226681

I'm sure this can be improved upon.

9 pieces: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1227192

Bonus06 http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1240646, based on a caribou99 design.
I think I spent a lot of time yesterday trying it, and just lucked out this morning.

EDIT: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1240995 is further in.

I guess it's unattached.


Looks good to me. If someone claims that it doesn't count....then ask them for a better solution.

A variation on the counterweight design for Bonus 5 (originally by blurg) - now using only a single arm rather than double (although I must say the double was quite cool!)

18/7
