2009 Game

Lunacy Two alliances, composed of three teams, compete in each match. Teams would try to score game pieces (moon rocks, empty cells, and super cells) in an opponent's trailer. Each team hauled a trailer that enemy robots shot at or dumped moon rocks into to get points. Moon rocks and empty cells were worth 2 points each and super cells were worth 15 points.
