Yes boys and girls, this is the game.


Step right up (with your robot)! This years game is designed to be much more practical. Imagine your robot – your pride and joy – working at six flags for just over minnimum wage! Now there’s a robot that’ll make ya proud!

This year, the robots must guess the combined waight of the opposing team’s human players to within 3 pounds! During qualifying matches, robots are ranked by tallying their respective scores. The finals will consist of a face off: the team to win the most stuffed elephants in the 2 minute match advances.

Robots may converse to determine their guesses.

Programming your robot to verbally bash it’s opponents is not within the spirit of the competition, and judges may choose to use this as a basis for disqualification.


Well, at least that’s what Dean told me. Dean would never lie.

Would he?
