We are planning on using two different types of material that has an adhesive (tape) on side that allows material to stick to a surface.

This material in no way is used to enhance the structure of robot and instead helps to reduce friction. The second material will help hold checkers as robot moves.

How do you determine if these materials are legal or not?

Thank you,
John

According to the rules, the key is whether the additional materials enhance the structure. By your description, the "friction-reducing" addition is certainly permitted. I see no objection to tape that might stick to game pieces, but you might ask Danny to confirm my interpretation of the rules.

Confirmed. :)

If tape does stick to game pieces, remember that tape is always considered part of the robot. You won't be able to remove items by hand in any way - without losing those items due to robot touch (you cannot touch/handle game pieces that are touching the robot).
