The 2016 FRC game is STRONGHOLD. This Monty Python themed, medieval game consist of two alliances with castle walls and castle defenses. Crossing your opponent’s five defenses, selected from nine possible defenses, requires agile and robust robots. Once inside the opponent’s courtyard, robots will take aim at the opponent’s castle, in low and high goals, with “boulders”. Teams will attempt to capture their opponent’s castle and points by scaling the castle wall.
Students and mentors were excited to see this multi-faceted and richly-imagined game. We thank Bill H. for hosting us and providing breakfast during our kickoff event.
