Castle Siege 2019
Registration Opens: November 1, 2018
Registration closes : 15 May 2019
Castle Siege 2018 has been a hige success. We had a great deal of fun and the teams performed pretty good, well most of them anyway. This was the introduction year for Castle Siege. The game rules are not that strict. Castle Siege 2019 is however and upgrade from the 2018 game and will be a little bit tougher.
As always, there is only 1 winner and that winner takes all. The gauranteed price for the winner is at least R500, but may be more depending on the number of teams entering the competition and if we have a sponsor. Prize money is only applicable if there is 10 teams or more in each division.
Don't miss out on this game next year. It is always a great deal of fun.
Castle Siege has 2 divisions :
- The LEGO Robot Division for School Kids from grade 5 to grade 12.
- The Ultra Division for all other robot platforms and all other ages.
For the first time we will also make the game pieces available to teams to buy.
- The price for all the wooden game pieces is R300.00
- The price for a printed PVC playing field is R750.00
- Water balloons and LEGO Balls are not included.
- The playing pieces will also not be painted.
Welcome to the exiting world of the "DestructoBots".
This is a unique Trophy Robotics initiative in reaction to the endless requests for a type of "war game" with LEGO Robots. As you can imagine, we were not to keen on this for a very long time, but we needed a really fun challenge for the kids, so we decided to go for it.
We also decided that we do not want the robots to destroy each other for a few reasons:
- The robots are really expensive.
- When one builds a DestructoBots for the first time, you come to appreciate the amount of work going into it. There is just no way you want someone else to destroy all your hard work.
- If your robot is destroyed in the first game, you will not have time to repair/rebuilt it for the other games.
Therefore, we have decided that it will be a whole lot better to have a rough game, but find some other things to destroy, rather than the robots.
In the future we are going to place some objects on the field to be destroyed. The game will be split into different sections. Therefore the rules of the game are getting very important.
We also did not want to make the playing field too complicated. A simple surface with some added goodies to it, will be good enough for us.
So if this type of thing "floats your boat", peaks your interest, or something like that, then you better pull your LEGO Robot kit out of your closet and start building.
Don't stop reading either, there is a whole lot more to say about this.
So get ready for some serious fun and hard work.
