VEX: Stack Up


Stack Up is a game of balance and control. There are not many pieces, but they can be used in many different ways to score points. The movement of the objects is not always predictable so programming must be excellent in order to do well. The odd pieces also create hundreds of ways to move them about the field. Though some aspects of this game are very challenging, we made sure there are ways for both beginner and expert teams to score. Thanks for watching! Livewire1069F
