2012 - Rebound Rumble

Rebound Rumble was the 2012 FIRST Robotics Competition game. Rebound Rumble is played by two competing Alliances on a flat, 27 x 54 foot field. Each Alliance consists of three robots. They compete to score as many basketballs into their hoops as they can during a 2 minute and 15 second match. The higher the hoop in which the basketball is scored, the more points the Alliance receives. The match ends with robots attempting to balance on bridges located at the middle of the field.
