Competition Rules

We are currently planning for the Manitoba Robot Games event to be back in 2024.

The following links will take you to the rules for the individual competitions, but be sure to go first to the General Rules as these apply collectively to all the competitions. Then use your browser’s “back” button to return to this page.

PLEASE NOTE! The 2024 Games will be unique as many of the younger competitors may not have seen The Games before, and due to the lingering effects of Covid we are not sure how many schools will be registering for the Games this year. As a result we wish competitors to be aware that while we will do what ever we can to ensure each and every competitor has a chance to compete, some competitions may be cancelled at the last moment if there are too few contestants in a specific event to ensure a fair outcome. Cancellation may also occur due to availability of playing fields, judges, timers, etc.
