Game Rules

Game Rules

  • 3 minute rounds.
  • 2 player competition; player with the higher score wins.
  • During the last minute of play, the Swapper and Anti-Swapper items randomly appear.
    • If the Swapper is activated first, then the player scores swap and the Anti-Swapper disappears.
    • If the Anti-Swapper is activated first, then the Swapper disappears.
    • Alternatively, there can be a single swapper item. If the player with the higher score activates it nothing happens. If the player with the lower score activates it, then the scores are swapped.
  • With 30 seconds remaining in the round, the Trash Can item randomly appears.
    • The Trash Can item is a compilation of several items and is worth 20 points.
    • If the Trash Can remains after 10 seconds, then the individual contents are dispersed to random locations.
    • 10 seconds may prove to be to long. Maybe the contents should be emptied after 5 seconds.

Dumpster Mechanic (optional)

  • Limit the number of items per vacuum.
    • A designated location on the field of play will be treated as a dumpster where items can be dropped off one at a time.
    • A player earns twice the number of points when an item is dump in the trash.
    • An item can be dumped out when the robot is near the designated dumpster location and presses the A button.
    • A player regains space for each item dropped off and can pick up more items in this manner.
    • Each player should have their own dumpster. If a player dumps trash into the wrong dumpster, the points go to their opponent.
