Triple Play is played on a field initially set up as illustrated in the figures below. Two alliances – one “red” and one “blue” – composed of three teams each compete in each match. The object of the game is to attain a higher score than your opponent alliance by placing tetras on or into goals, getting three goals in a row capped with tetras, and/or having all three robots on an alliance in their end zone at the end of the match.
The Playing Field is a rectangular area in which the Robots compete. The Red and Blue Alliance Stations are rectangular areas, each consisting of three (3) Team Zones, which are located outside of the ends of the Playing Field. The three teams that make up each Alliance play the game from these stations.
