2019 - Destination Deep Space

"The game has a galactic theme where teams were tasked with placing playground balls similar to a dodge ball that were known as cargo balls to be placed in cargo ships and rockets, the cargo ship was a long rocket laying flat on the ground in the middle of the field and the rockets were standing straight up. Along with cargo balls there were poly-carbonate toroids that were used to patch the holes you would use to put the cargo balls into."
