VEX Game Design Animation Online Challenge

Create an animated video or simulation that shows and explains a VEX Robotics Competition game. This is your chance to get creative and invent a game within the requirements of this challenge, and demonstrate the game being played in a virtual environment. Construct a “real” VRC game that is affordable, easily constructed by volunteers, obeys the laws of physics, has understandable rules, is interesting for participants to play and audiences to watch.


Pillar Killer


Pillar Killer is played on a 12ft x 12ft field, made by two alliances, one red, and one blue, each made up of two teams.

Hole In The Wall


Welcome to Hole In The Wall! You and your opponent are split into 12x6 sections on the playing field called lanes. On the opposite end of the lane there is a wall with holes in it as the shape of squares, rectangles, and triangles. The wall starts moving to your bot and you need to stack up objects on the field in the EndZone to correspond to the holes in the wall. If your structure fits in the wall when it reaches the endzone, you will be rewarded with points. Depending on how fast and what shapes you used, that's how many points you will get.
