2012 Human Player Game

For the 2012 Kick Off in Raleigh, NC, #3459 did an afternoon of strategy and game discovery by doing a huge Human Player Game based on the animation we all saw at 11:30 am....

Overall, our goals were:

  • To provide a way for teams to get a better understanding of the rules of the 2012 game by playing it on a full sized field
  • To promote more discussion and community between FRC teams in NC

16 teams participated in the activity and we had some great volunteers for our on-the-fly creation of a game. Based on the response, it was a great success.

Results of the participant survey:
