The FLL rules don't specify a maximum score for the Robot Game.

Yes, there has been a tradition that there were exactly 400 points available in the past, and the Food Factor challenge has over 450 points described in the missions.  This is probably a soft limit, since it isn't obvious that it is possible to score all of them in 2.5 minutes.

What does it mean?  I suggest that teams should, as always, focus on seeing how creatively they can accomplish the missions, what strategies they can use to do as much as possible in a tournament match.

And, don't forget, "The full FLL robot development experience is only partly about tournament-day game points."

Hi All,
It seems that total of max points possible is more than 400, it is around 450.
Could you please tell if anyone else has noticed the same thing and if that
is correct then what does that mean.
