The kickoff was held in the Microsoft campus in Redmond on September 6, 2014. There were a lot of teams; more than last year. The game was revealed!
Its name: Cascade Effect. Our first impression was the surprising complexity of the game. The sheer amount of points possible to score in each stage was much more than last year. There were many ways to score points, meaning strategy will be all-important.
Thanks to Swerve Robotics for hosting us the night before and inviting us to share in their Strategy Session.
