According to the rules for this season, rule 19 brings about a big change from previous seasons:
Rule 19. Show the Referee that ALL your Equipment fits in either the Large or Small Inspection Area (your choice), under an imaginary ceiling 12 in. (30.5 cm) high. If it fits in the Small Inspection area, you get an advantage. The “Small Area” advantage for the City Shaper game is 5 points added to each Mission where you score ANY points. Exceptions: Mission 14 doesn’t apply, and for Mission 2, you get 10 added instead of 5.
After passing Inspection, arrange your Equipment anywhere in Home for storage and adjustments, and/or the Launch Area for Launch.
When testing for fit, does the equipment have to be free-standing, or can it be strategically held by hand while showing the refs that it fits? Also, will any amount of disassembly of large attachments be permitted in order to get it to fit (understanding that there is not much guaranteed time for setup after the inspection)?
