Teams are required to shoot wiffleballs which represent fuel into a simulated boiler which transfers the steam into an airship that’s located in the middle of the field. Each alliance has one airship, which they pressurize with steam from the boiler and load with plastic gears from the field. In the last 30 seconds of the game, robots can climb and hang on team-supplied ropes attached to the airship for additional points.
