VEX Robotics Competition SPIKED is played on a 12 ft x 12 ft foam-mat, surrounded by a sheetmetal and lexan perimeter. In total, 20 foam Sea Urchins are scattered across the field, 8 regular positive scoring, 8 regular negative scoring, 2 x2 points positive scoring, and 2 -x2 points negative scoring. Six Towers are set up on the field, three spread in the middle of the blue alliance field, and three spread in the middle of the red alliance field. There are three openings on each face of each tower, the top scoring 3 points for a regular Sea Urchin, the middle scoring 2 points for a regular Sea Urchin, the bottom scoring 1 point for a regular Sea Urchin. There are two Platforms, one on each alliance’s side of the field. They are on the Hanging Poles, but they are outside and level with the Field Perimeter. Teams also score points by hanging at various heights on the Hanging Poles. For more details, check out our Game Manual.
