The 2003 game required teams to collect and stack storage containers on their side of the field. Alliances consisted of two teams each. Points were received based on how many containers were Stacked, except for the tallest Stack. The height of the tallest Stack was used as a Multiplier for the score based on the other containers. Alliances also received twenty five points for each robot that was on top of a Ramp at the end of the match. This was the first game to include an Autonomous period, where the robot was to perform tasks, without the help of the driver or operator, through programming.
