TDT Annual New Season Guess the Game!

It’s that time of year again! Time for FIRST Tech Challenge Team Duct Tape’s annual Guess the Game Game!  This year, we’re going to try again, to give away our homemade duct tape Minion – who ended up living an extra year with us after last season’s live kick off was called on account of bad weather.

So Minion is back, and looking for a home with whoever comes up with a guess closest to this season’s actual game challenge.  Using the Rover Ruckus teaser video below, and any game hints you might detect in the FIRST Tech Challenge blog, teams attending the West Florida FIRST Tech Challenge Kick Off at Middleton High School this coming Saturday, September 8, can put their best guesses in a box we’ll have there.  After the game reveal, we’ll award the Minion to whoever came closest!

So, start combing through anything that looks like clues, and we’ll see you on Saturday!
