Steamworks but the fuels are the size of Stronghold's Boulders.

Still worth the same amount of points...

Re: Worst possible game

Recycle rush played on regolith with plastic wheels and you have to stack floppies and cap them with balloon that may or may not fly away.

Re: Worst possible game

For those that have watched the movie "Spare Parts" I'd say FIRST Waterworks could get bad with the regulations along with the refs and LRIs not knowing how to handle it as has been easier with many precedents from years past.

Re: Worst possible game

No size limit. Bumpers are optional. Every robot is required to use mecanum or omni wheels. The game is designed to be scored with a SINGLE game piece (that costs over $200). Go.

Re: Worst possible game

Cup stacking game with normal sized cups. You can make your robot as tall or wide as you want as long as it doesn't exceed 5 ft. Cups are normal sized or smaller and if you crush the cups in any shape or form, you get a 50 point penalty for damaging property. End game is that you have to knock over the other's cup stacked tower by shooting little plastic ping pong balls across the field. The middle of the field is entirely off limits.

A terrible game to play, but it'd be a great one for the manufacturability award idea.
