VEX Breakthrough


Introducing VEX Breakthrough

VEX Breakthrough is a strategic game based around scoring balls, blocks and buckets. Alliances of 2 teams play against each other attempting to score the most points during a 2-minute match. The blocks in the middle of the field form a wall that teams need to break through to access the majority of their buckets. As well as being scorable objects, the blocks also become obstacles for robots, making multiple strategies possible in this game. Our recycled game object is the Nothing but Net ball mostly for its light weight yet...
