 Game Summary


For a more detailed explanation, see the Wikipedia article and the game animation.

Robots engaged in an alliance vs. alliance competition to collect gears and fuel to ready their airship for liftoff. Robots work to deposit gears in order to get rotors spinning on their airship, taking an increasing number of gears to get each rotor spinning. Wiffle balls act as fuel for the airship, which are stored in hoppers on the edges of the field, which robots can release. Fuel is deposited in the boiler via the low goal or high goal. At the end of the match, robots can climb aboard their airship via rope. The alliance with the most points at the end of the match wins!
