The Game

FIRST Stronghold is the game for the 2016 FIRST Robotics Competition. The game is played by two alliances of three teams each, and involves breaching the opponents' defenses, known as outer works, and capturing their tower by first firing 'boulders' (small foam balls) at it and then surrounding or scaling the tower using rungs.
