“FIRST® POWER UP, the 2018 FIRST® Robotics Competition game, includes two alliances of video game characters and their human operators who are trapped in an arcade game. Both alliances are working to defeat the boss in order to escape!”
This competition focused on placing yellow Power Cubes on field pieces known as Switches and Scales. Placing a cube on a switch or scale would help weigh the switch/scale to your alliances favor. Switches and scales leaning in their alliances favor would generate points over time, and placing cubes on the switches and scales earned the alliance points as well. Alliances could also use the power cubes to active Power Ups that would activate a bonus for the alliance.
