Every April at VEX Worlds, the REC Foundation announces the rules for the next season’s VRC and VEX IQ games. Changing the rules of the game every year keeps things fresh and presents students with an ever-changing challenge.
The game for the 2016-17 VEX Robotics Competition year is Starstruck.
VEX Starstruck is played on a 12’x12’ square field. Two alliances, one “red” and one “blue,” composed of two teams each, compete in matches consisting of a fifteen second autonomous period followed by one minute and forty-five seconds of driver-controlled play. The object of the game is to attain a higher score than the opposing Alliance by scoring your Stars and Cubes in your Zones and by Hanging Robots on your Hanging Bar.
The VRC Game Design Committee maintains an official game Q&A forum on the VEX forum. The Q&A Forum is the ONLY official source for questions about game rules.
