2013 Human Player Game (HPG)

following NC FRC Kick-off at Dorton Arena, Jan 5, 2013

250 students from 30 teams led by FRC Team PyroTech #3459 and volunteers from many teams participated in North Carolina's unique Human Player Game. The students and mentors spent the afternoon collaborating on strategy and game discovery by substituting humans for robots.

Goals of Human Player Game 2013:

  • To provide a way for teams to get a better understanding of the rules of the 2013 game by playing it on a full sized field
  • To promote more discussion and community between FRC teams in NC

This year we had 250 students from 30 teams participate in the activity (16 teams in 2012) and we had some great volunteers for our on-the-fly creation of a game. Based on the response, it was a great success again this year.
