Ideal FRC Game

Since the hint thread is becoming quite clogged with what people would like to see and less of what we might actually see, I think we need a new thread to discuss what people would want to see. Come up with all of your game hints here, regardless of feasibility.

Have at it people, your turn to be GDC!

Re: Ideal FRC Game

Re: Ideal FRC Game

I think that an idea could be a mix of Aim High, and Overdrive. The game piece could be a foam football.

You could even use a roomba as the puck... as long as you don't have bridges.

An ideal game would have durable game pieces that were also readily available in the necessary quantities for FIRST teams, with suppliers that wouldn't be surprised by a sudden overload of demand for their product.

I think Roombas would make great game pieces (they certainly aren't very good at cleaning). They just need to make them move faster and add evasive programming.

that's where the tetras and rubber maid bins came in handy. FIRST could also just use the kop totes as a game piece
