MENTOR RUSH is a mentor-themed game designed for the 2021 FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). It is played by two Alliances of three Teams each. Alliances compete simultaneously to score points by stacking @JVN on Scoring Platforms, capping those stacks with 4 bar linkages, and properly disposing of full coffee cups, represented by coffee mugs, on the mentor table. In keeping with the mentor theme of the game, all scoring elements used are reusable as coffee cups or mechanical advisors by teams in their home locations or by FIRST at the end of the season.


Programming’s Fault. They clearly neglected to include the first Law.

It’s like the aliens from toy story…

Hey, Greg, can I pick your brain for a few minutes?

What do we have here? A brain-eating robot claw.

What is it doing? (I’ll leave you to your own devices to supply the punch line.)

It was at this point that mankind realized they had taken automation too far

Team 73 really needs to work on the neural network for their vision programming. Instead of scoring game pieces at competition, this robot might actually score a referee, which, while not explicitly stated, is probably a red card.

Artist’s interpretation of @Greg_Needel and all the robots that want NEO motors.


Nobody expects Autonomous Mode!
At least the robot didn’t hang him on the rack. Or give him the comfy chair.

The robot is just trying to get a head.

Picture of the exact moment the first elevator bot tipped towards a ref

The teams offseason project, designing a robotic barber, went horribly wrong.

Surrendering to the robot apocalypse before it’s even started.

This gives a whole new meaning to AI (Autonomously Incapacitate).
