Theme It Up! sponsored by the REC Foundation
Every year the new game is unveiled at VEX Worlds using a short video. In this video the basic game rules are explained, and game objects and scoring are defined. For some teams this is the highlight of the entire VEX Worlds experience! There is one thing missing though… a theme.
Your challenge is to give this year's game a theme. Using the exact same rules and definitions, your team must create a story as to why the robots are competing on the field. This is your team's chance to
- give names to the game and field objects
- give purpose to the scoring of those objects on the field
- tell a story describing the reasons for victory
The Theme It Up! Online Challenge submission must include a storyboard, visuals, explanation as to why robots must meet objectives, and names of game/field objects. The theme must use all the same rules as in the current Game Manual.
Have fun and we look forward to seeing your creative themes!
Our adapted game theme is based on space and the galaxy. Everyone on our team found space extremely interesting and wanted to incorporate it into our game adaptation. We also chose this theme because our team name is “Supernovas.” A supernova is an explosion that occurs in outer space.
In the year 2643, planet Earth is faced with a metal shortage due to the growing population of the planet. A few years ago some explorers were exploring the solar system and they found a large amount of metal in asteroids but at the time it wasn’t needed, so they left it alone. Two metal production companies, VEX INC. and Starmetal Corporation are rivals.... Check out our project for how the problem was solved!
Our project is to theme up the field, give each field object a name and a reason for why it’s there. We made it a dystopian future in which there is a rebellion going on on one side there is R.E.D. and on the other side there is B.L.U. They are fighting against each other to see if B.L.U. will be freed from R.E.D. or if they will continue to be stuck under their command.
The universe is out of control! Only YOU can help! Nothing is as it should be. In three separate galaxies, all in the Rise Above Galaxy Cluster, the planets have shifted out of their solar systems! The only way to get things back to how they should be is with your help!
It’s time to Conjure Up some points in our Quidditch-themed version of the VEX VRC game, Change Up! We are team 2657A, the Sandpiper Hexperts, a new, diverse VRC team. For the Theme It Up online challenge, we decided to incorporate our team’s spirit and interests into the Change Up game, so we drew inspiration from the Harry Potter book series. Seeing parallels between the objectives of different players and how points are scored in Quidditch and Change up led us to our final project: “Conjure Up!” We hope you enjoy our...
We are the Pixibots and for this Theme It Up Challenge, we came up with the idea of a destructive war between two powerful kingdoms - and how it began. Over countless weeks of teamwork and creativity, the Void Treaty War was created. We hope this creates a new perspective about the VEX Change Up Game - and we hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it.
The little people live in trees, but their village is threatened by climate change, as it causes wildfires to start in the village. The council of the little people meets to try to figure out what to do, the first councilman asks if they should evacuate the population, but another councilman answers that they have nowhere to go, outside of the village. So the decision is taken, they have to protect the trees. But how? That’s when the old man of the village steps in and says “Then we have no choice, we must use the key passed down from our ancestors, the Vex...

Hundreds of years in the future, humanity is hiding away in underground shelters. Using rovers, they attempt to raid the other shelters, and this back and forth struggle continues until they discover teleportation gates that had been created back in the modern era. By changing goals into teleportation gates, and balls into hacking chips, the entirety of Change Up is flipped on its head. You can watch the video going over the key points here, and read the full pdf report and how to convert...
