The game is out and we are super excited! We gathered at Minnetronix on Saturday to watch the live stream and start our brainstorming. After reading the manual and playing some riveting games of ping pong, we spent some time talking in small groups. We tried to answer some main strategic questions and then created a few potential robot profiles. We managed to get in one game of our RPG (the role playing game/robot paper game that we developed for mock kickoff) before heading home.
We spent Sunday at our home shop. The day was sweetened by some fabulous popcorn in our colors. We played two more rounds of the RPG to get a sense of the game before we started our strategy meeting. About three hours later and after lots of intense discussion, we walked out with a plan for what our robot will be able to do.
