2007 Game

Two alliances, composed of three teams, competed in each match. Teams attempted to pick up and hang inflatable inner tubes. To score points, a robot needed to hang inner tubes on a hexagonal rack in the center of the field called a spider. To gain extra points, a robot needed to hang the inner tubes in horizontal or vertical rows all around the spider. Another way to score extra points was to drive your robot onto an alliance robot's ramps to elevate your robot.
