The most complex, yet the most challenging. This vex game requires knowledge of where to apply force, heavy amounts of multiplication, and endless strategies. Will you win Excelence award at this nightmare of a challenge? Or will Cops and Robbers pickpocket all of your money?

A complex game that requires endless strategies, knowledge of where to apply force, and heavy amounts of multiplication. Good luck in the dastardly Season 9!

This is definitely better than your last entry with the moving objects and robots making the game a lot clearer than just having a video with moving text and still images. It’s a good concept having moving cylinders which change who gets the points associated with it depending on where the cylinder is on the field, so the total scores could change very quickly throughout the match which would be interesting to watch. However, I think the game design gets a bit complicated with the number of ideas in there (moving cylinders, different regions, the pyramid, bonus ball scoring), so even though a lot of them are good ideas (the bonus points for parking on the opposing starting tile at the end of the match in my opinion is a really good one which I’d expect VEX to have come up with by now) it might be easier to understand if you streamlined it down to only a couple of central concepts. There are a few other things, but you’ve mentioned most of them in your comment anyway :) (demo match, floating robots etc.) Good luck!
