2018 - FIRST Power Up
The new game was announced on January 6. It involves two alliances of three teams each, with each team controlling a robot and performing specific tasks on a field to score points. The game has a retro 8-bit theme and teams are required to place milk crates, or "power cubes", on large balancing scales to tip the scale and gain ownership. Alliances can also trade power cubes for power ups, giving them a temporary advantage in the game. At the end of the game, robots can climb the tower attached to the center balancing scale using a rung attached to the tower, giving them additional points. You can learn more about the rules of the game here.
