2012 Rebound Rumble
The 2012 FRC challenge is called Rebound Rumble. Rebound Rumble is played between two Alliances of three teams each. The game field has four basketball hoops in front of each alliance station, which are located on either end of the field. In the middle of the field, dividing the field in half, is a low wooden barrier punctuated by three bridges. Each Alliance competes by trying to score as many of the basketballs in the hoops as possible during the 2-minute and 15-second match. Balls scored in higher hoops score Alliances more points.
Alliances are awarded bonus points if they are balanced on their alliance bridge at the end of the match. In matches where opponent Alliances work together to balance on the white bridge, all participating teams earn additional valuable seeding points. Here is this year’s game animation:
