Today was NOT the day to miss. Actually, no day is a good day to miss. But this one in particular. The team spent a couple hours reading the manual, clarifying some rules, and discussing possible game strategies to score points. The team split into 8 mini groups each led by a mentor. Each group was responsible for drafting up a rough concept design for a robot. We then took a much deserved lunch break. After that, we identified the reoccurring robot concept ideas and archetypes, consolidating all 8 ideas into 3 basic concepts. Each of the mini-team ideas was some variation or combination of the 3 archetypes.
On Monday, we will be finalizing the robot concept. We will also be having a game manual test. If you do not pass the test, you will not be allowed to vote on the final robot concept. SO READ THE MANUAL.
