2016 FRC Game: Stronghold
StrongholdSM is a castle-themed game played by two Alliances of three robots each. Robots score points in three ways: by shooting boulders into their opponent’s castle, disabling opponent’s defenses by crossing over them multiple times, and by scaling their opponent’s castle at the end of the game.

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an organization dedicated to promote science and technology to future achievers. FIRST offers a variety of programs to have students solve real world problems. They help develop young minds throughout the world, and inspire future generations to strive for the best.
FIRST hosts a yearly competition known as the FIRST Tech Challenge, or FTC. Each year, FIRST gives each team a challenge, and the teams have to build a robot in six weeks that can solve the challenge. The tasks in these challenges range from stacking totes to overcoming obstacles to shooting frisbees into goals, and are presented in the form of a game. At the end of six weeks, robots are sent to storage and stay there until the competition, where they compete to gain the most points by completing the most tasks.
