During the game, robots attempt to place game pieces onto the grids-bonus points if it forms the FIRST logo. Robots can attain points by stacking the shapes on different heights of the rack located on the opposite side of the field. Top row is 3 points, middle row is 2 points, and bottom row is 1 point. Points are doubled if placed on an Ubertube or if it forms the FIRST logo. Minibots must be deployed towards the end of the match to earn 30 points- if the alliance does it first.
