1999robotPoints were scored by positioning “floppies,” robots, and the “puck” on the playing field. Floppies were light weight, pillow-like objects with Velcro-loop material located in the center and around the perimeter. Each alliance had ten color coded floppies located on the playing field and at the player stations.

At the end of each two minute match, points were awarded as follows: Each two-team alliance will receive one point for each of its floppies that is at least 2” over and not touching the playing field surface, and less than eight feet above the surface if the playing field. Each alliance received three points for each of its floppies eight feet or higher over the surface of the playing field.

Any robot that climbed onto the puck multiplied its alliance’s score by three.
