FIRST Power Up is the FIRST Robotics Competition game for the 2018 season. Two alliances of three teams each will go head to head to earn points. This year’s game has a retro, 8-bit theme and teams are required to place milk crates, or “power cubes”, on large balancing scales to tip the scale and gain ownership. Alliances can also trade power cubes for power ups, giving them a temporary advantage in the game. At the end of the match, robots who are elevated at least one foot will earn additional points.
