On the cold day of January 7th, 2017, about 30 members of the Discobots FRC Team arrived at the house of Andrew Lynch, the team’s head mentor. They ate a couple donuts, caught up with their friends, and then sat down to watch the new game.

After the reveal, the members immediately rushed to download the game manual and start discussing the exciting new game and its intricacies. There were jumps to talk about what the most important aspect of the game was: the gears or the fuel. Gears were ultimately decided upon, as they bring the most points in the least amount of time, but the decision is still up in the air.
