The Cheesy Poofs are proud to present our submission for this year's Vex Design a Game Challenge: Triangulation. The game is designed around a core of basic principles but includes a unique and challenging set of special obstacles robots must overcome: a wall, a tunnel, and 2 raised platforms. All of these must be taken into account to design a champion robot. Thus, this game will force teams to experiment with robot structure and mechanics, which hasn't been the case these past few years. Strategy will heavily involve design, as the many different types of robots that can be made (ramp, tunnel, one side, two sides, defensive, offensive, etc.) make for varied and numerous effective strategies. This game is designed so that even rookie teams can approach it, but will make sure teams will be pushed to their intellectual limits and learn in the process.
