    not at all. its the perfect heavy shoice for that small of a game since it is cheap in points

    well think of something u know that is 12 inches, well not that somethign else. for example. my shoe size is a 15, so i knwo that it is about 12 inches. when i guess i look at my foot and imagine my foot on the table and make an estimate from there. u will get btter in time.

    notice land marks and their distances when you fire and use that to calibrate your shot

    A good way to calcultae distances is by using trigonometry. To get the most accurate legs in the triangle you guess the distance from the table edge and to the target and subtrac /add it relativly to the place ment of the Whirlwind. The same is done with the Whirlwind itself

    Take a look here for what I mean. The "W" is the Whirlwind and the "T" is the target. The distances you need to know is the green ones (marked h1 and h2) To find out these you need to know the size of the field, which shouldn&#39;t be a problem finding out before the game. Now just guess the distances marked in red and subtract them from the appropriate table length. After this is done you will have to distances the h1 and the h2. Now just calculate the "k" (blue one) using the Pythagorean Theorem (not sure if this is the correct term)

    Use your other measuring to help hone your guess work.

    You relly have to have an eye for it.

    <_< It&#39;s also practice.. In your free time you might whanna set up your whirlwind and like 3 squads in different areas of your playing area.. then just guess three times (One for each sqaud) and then re set up the squads and whirlwind.. You&#39;ll get the hand of it.. And you&#39;ll get the eye for it... So you can give a educated guess when your playing for real. It works for me.. :w
