2005 Triple Play

2005 Season Triple Play

This game was the first to feature three robots per alliance. The primary game pieces were called “Tetras” which are tetrahedra made from long PVC pipe segments. The game was played on a field set up like a tic-tac-toe board, with nine large tetrahedral goals in three rows of three. The object of the game was to place the scoring tetras on the larger goals, creating rows of three by having a tetra of your alliance’s color at the highest point on the goal. Triple Play was a strategically intensive game, requiring quick thinking on the part of the drivers and operators to optimize the field for their alliance. More Information can be found on Wikipedia
