Unattached Champion Challenge

Postby mtdewd on Mon Sep 01, 2008 9:22 am

A guest in the 'Stop! In the Name of Love' post suggested a challenge for what I will call Unattached Champions-
a Champion where the goal piece is not connected to any other pieces.
Many of these have already been optimized in other posts.
The numbers are for minimum pieces and minimum pieces left in goal.

The one you have posted for Unpossible doesn't work. It is connected to a little tail.

http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=15077


But if you can finish this one it would technically win.

I happen to have a random design for Up the Hump from when I first started playing that fits the criteria and does it in 9: http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=29625

Everyone knows that catapults are the best for Up the Hump: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=508417
(This one's from Entity's catapult construction guide, designed by Mimsy)

Tweaked it a couple times and got it: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1182667 14 pieces (Could probably get that number down.)

This one is NOT a champion either. Zoom in, the ball moves left very very slowly, out of the goal.
