Difference From Eighteen (DFE): An adjusted score that is used to determine the winner of a match. Landing Zone (LZ): Areas at the ends of the field, indicated with colored tape, where all coalition robots must be placed at the start of the match, and where Birdies are scored.
Definitions Birdies: Irregularly shaped plastic game objects typically found in badminton tournaments. Birdie Starting Location (BSL): Marked squares on the field where Birdies are located at the beginning of each match. Tubular Birdie Source (TBS): Tubes at the forward edge of the field and in front of the ramps where teams may get Birdies. BOX of leXan (BOX): A 6” tall, 24” wide, 11.5” deep, clear, walled off area within the LZ wherein Birdies may be scored.

BOP Obstruction Pane (BOP): Coalition colored panes located at either end of the trough, which are used to determine control of the Savage Ball.

Birdies Each Birdie in your LZ is worth one point Red Birdies only count in the red LZ, and blue only in the blue LZ Birdies in your BOX cannot be removed by your opponents You will not score points for any Birdies you are in contact with at the end of the match
Tubular Birdie Sources The field has four TBS’s: Two in front of the Ramp Two on the front wall of the field Each TBS starts with four white Birdies
Ramp and Trough The Ramp provides access to the Trough The Trough is where the Savage Ball is contained and scored
Savage Ball Control of the Savage Ball is determined by which color BOP it’s touching Control of the Savage Ball at the end of Autonomous Mode gives your coalition 6 Birdies in your BOX Control of the Savage Ball at the end of driver control gives your coalition 2 points
Birdie Buttons There are two Birdie Buttons on the front wall of the field Pressing a Birdie Button in Autonomous Mode gives 2 Birdies to the coalition whose color button was pressed
