DescriptionThis one might be a little out there but the idea is that the teams get a list of components with which to build a digging robot for their mine. At meals we compare standings and allow changes and improvements.
BasicsRobots are built by choosing components from a list. Based on their components and conditions, they do a certain amount of mining.
They can use mining and perhaps victories in other ream events to modify their robot probably once or twice a day.
Why is this Fun?It would pit mind vs. mind as teams tried to adapt their robot to be the best in changing conditions.
Variations:None Submitted
