The FIRST Tech Challenge 2017-2018 season game will be our most incredible game yet.
The 2017-2018 Game:
FIRST RELIC RECOVERYSM is played on 3.7m × 3.7m square field with approximately 0.3m high walls and a soft foam mat floor. The object of the game is to attain a higher score than the opposing alliance by (1) scoring Glyphs into the Cryptoboxes and completing rows, column, and ciphers, (2) transferring Relics to the Recovery Zone, (3) retrieving Jewels, (4) parking on the Balancing Stones, and (5) navigating to specific parts of the Playing Field.
Matches have two distinct periods of play: a 30-second Autonomous period followed by a two-minute Driver- Controlled period. The last 30 seconds of the Driver- Controlled period is called the End Game which adds new scoring opportunities for robots to achieve.
