Event Description

Please note that this will also be a free to enter event! There is no registration fee. This will take place on the green way in Boston next to South Station so you dont need to pay to enter the event!  Sign up for the event on Eventbright.

This event will be 1 pound plastic bots only.

Please see NERC for generic rules ( 

MassD Unique Rules: Plastic Ant: The vast majority of construction elements in your robot must be made of plastic. This goes especially for weapons and armor. Carbon fiber, kevlar, and fiberglass are not plastics so you should not put them in your robot. 3D printing is heavily encouraged, but not required. No fiber or epoxy reinforcing allowed on prints, and no chopped-suey carbon fillament!

Tournament Structure: The event will be running our modified-Swiss style of competition, ensuring every robot gets to fight at least 4 times. Highest-scoring four robots will be entered into a short double-elimination tournament to crown the winner and King (or Queen) of Denmark! Tournament structure is subject to change without reason, but time-permitting you will be able to fight your robot at least 4 times if it's up to the task!

Schedule is shamelessly copied from previous events:

8 AM: Gates open, Safety opens

10:30 AM: First Fights

As always, we'd appreciate any help we can get from kind volunteers showing up the night before for arena assembly or who want to serve as judges/staff for the event! We will be sending out a volunteering form in the weeks ahead for you cool people!
