About First Power UP:FRC Game 2018

FIRST ®
POWER UP, SM the 2018 FIRST ®
Robotics Competition game, finds our teams trapped in an 8bit video game! Teams use power cubes to defeat the boss.

Each three-team alliance has three
ways to help defeat the boss:
1. Owning the scale or their switch.
Ownership occurs when the scale or
alliance’s switch is tipped in their favor.
Robots collect and deliver power cubes to
gain ownership.
2. Playing power ups. Alliances exchange
power cubes for power ups. Power ups
provide a timed advantage during the match.
There are three power ups that can be
played: Force, Boost, and Levitate.
3. Climbing the scale tower. Robots work
together to climb the scale tower to face the
boss.

The alliance with the highest
score at the end of the match
defeats the boss and wins.
