Today was the kickoff for FRC 2016 Build season and everyone in the team has been looking forward to it! This year’s FRC game is Stronghold, where each team needs to breach the other team’s defenses and throw boulders into the enemy Tower to score. There are various defenses to stop the robots storming the Stronghold, such as gates and draw bridges. At the end of the match, if the enemy Tower has taken enough damage in the battle, the robots can attempt to climb the opponent’s tower to score additional points.

We first spent a few hours to familiarise ourselves with the rule manual of this year’s game. Then we split into different groups and each group took notes on one section of the rule manual, and then presented those notes with the whole team. After that, the team formed into the same groups and discussed the strategies that we can take. At the end of the day, each group shared their strategy and every member of the team had an opportunity to comment on, and discuss these strategies.
