FIRST STEAMWORKS℠ is played by two alliances of three teams each. Robots collect fuel (balls) and score it in their boiler. Boilers turn fuel into steam pressure which is stored in the steam tank on their airship – but it takes more fuel in the low efficiency goal to build steam than the high efficiency goal. They deliver gears to pilots on their airship for installation. Robots must latch on to their airship before launch (the end of the match) by ascending their ropes to signal that they’re ready for takeoff. Read more about the game.
