2020

The Game

This year, First is teaming up with Star Wars to bring the Infinite Recharge Competition for 2020.

For the 2020 game, Teams will have to charge FIRST City's Shield Generator by scoring Power Cells in designated goals. After scoring a set number of Power Cells, teams must interact with a colored wheel, either spinning the wheel a set number of spins, or setting the wheel to the correct color. Afterwards, near the end of the game, teams must balance on a metal rod hanging in the middle of the map, with a level bar giving them the most points.
