In version 1.0 of the Tipping Point game manual, R8 e. was updated from “An unlimited amount of 1/8” (or local metric equivalent), braided, nylon rope” to “An unlimited amount of rope / string, no thicker than 1/4” (6.35mm).”
Clarification on rope/string definition Since the rule no longer specifies the type of rope/string, what falls under rope/string in this manual. Can higher tensile strength materials be used like fishing line and steel cable? https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-1-4-in-x-100-ft-Galvanized-Steel-Uncoated-Wire-Rope-803132/203958865#overlay Products like these technically fit the build restrictions because they are called “rope”. Please clarify the definition for us. Personal opinion - Our team thinks it would make sense to legalize stronger tensile strength rope/strings with the introduction of 3-4 pound game elements. We think the build restrictions should scale with the difficulty of the game.
Clarification on ¼ in. restriction In the updated rule it says the string/rope cannot be thicker than ¼ in. Does this mean the string/rope cannot be larger than ¼ in. in diameter or radius?
