Ohh... I like the ski-ball goal style idea.

Hear me out here. "Corn Craze." Teams would have to drive on top of a field covered in 1 to 2 inches of corn! Imagine the possibilities!

Re: Cool ideas for a future FIRST game

I thought of this last night, but what about a nuclear power based game? Might be a bit too similar to steamworks, but theres could be fission, fusion, and weaponization aspects? maybe some 50's aesthetic too.

The original game FRC game, in 1992, was called Maize Craze and it was exactly that!

Re: Cool ideas for a future FIRST game

How about the curling game played on a split level field?

One half of the field (longways) is a foot higher than the other. Each section has a ~3' wide strip of lunacy-ish low friction material leading to a goal at each end. Goals are ~3' by ~3' areas at the end of each low friction strip with a bullseye painted in the center, and a drop off at the end that leads to the opposite-alliance human player station where game pieces can be returned to play.

The game pieces are ~6" diameter pucks made of something slippery.

Pucks closer to the center of the bullseye are worth more points, pucks further from the bullseye are worth less. The upper bullseye is worth double the lower.

The goal you're scoring on is the one on the same side as your driver station. Pucks are initially staged in each robot, and along the bottom of the ledge on the lower half. They are returned to play on the far side of the lower half, except for ones that fall off the end of the goal, which are returned to play somewhere better (midway down the upper half?)

Endgame could be something inspired by this year's game. There's a long scale-like pivoting structure running long-ways down the middle of the field that teams attempt to pull downwards. The team with the "scale" tipped down on their side at the end of the game get a high-point value bonus.

Too complicated? Too simple? Too old-style-FRC?

Re: Cool ideas for a future FIRST game

Idea even MORE fun than lunacy:





Bear with me...





Hovercrafts.

Yes, hovercrafts. all the sliding around ever. This game, you are allowed to use brushless motors like those used in RC aircraft. No ide what the game pieces would be or how to score, but the only allowed mobility would be via air skirts and fans.
