Hmm... It seems like it would not be especially fair. Wouldn't the drones self-correct? Why don't you come up wth a mini-game and stick it over in House Rules?

Drone curling: Tau Olympics

"We are here for the 15th Seasonal Drone curling tournament, where only the finest of curlers and curling drones participate for the covetted first curling object "Commander Eingart's Gue'la helmet" trophy! Just before we meet the contestants we'll take gander at the rules of play:

A curling match requires 2 tau participants and 8 curler drones.

Before each game the jack is played out onto the field, by using a radomly bouncing die, from a specified height(12 inches above the table) from the starting position out a random distance.

Each curler then takes it in turns to slide the hover drone (shield drones work best) 1D6, 2D6, 3D6 or 4D6 inches in a straight line in a direction of the players choosing (playing it forwaed helps). However, should the curler suffer a roll of a double, then his drone has curled slightly, and scatters 1D6 in a random direction at the end of its move. This may take the drone closer or futher away from the target depending.

Each player recieves 4 drones, and drones remain in play untill all 8 drones have been played. If a drone should conact another drone on its way, then the other drone will drift 1D6 inches directly away from the incoming drone (determine the angle between the 2 drones where their bases touch) and the curled drone will stop at the location where it hit the stationary drone, without using up any of its remaining movement.

Now, we will be going out for a short sermon break, but we'll be right back, and we'll be talking to all the contestants to get their view's on the match. Over to you Commander shas'el Sho'lan ...."
