I left them
charging all night and they still didn’t perform. I’m not an IT expert. I just

pushing Jackal out of the way, allowing Delta Green a free strike for the

began removing the Orbitals from the pitch with a round of exploding 6 smashing
that left the robots quite depleted and allowed Lucky to saunter through for
another two points.
This time it
was Omega Black’s turn to have a go at a strike, sprinting from the bench and
scooping up the ball whilst Gamma Red continued his limp pushing of the
Scrawpers, opening up a small gap that allowed Omega Black the freedom to miss

we didn’t have to rely on it again, as after the Scrawpers went 5 up, Delta
Green scooped up the ball, and despite 2 cards allowing 2 rerolls, still
managed to fall flat on his dumb robot face attempting a simple evade. The ball
scattered kindly for the corporation team, and they finished the match with
some aplomb, a cool 3-pointer from Lucky that had the crowd both cheering the
humans and booing the badly malfunctioning metal twerps.
They’re still under warranty. A man is coming out to fix them on Tuesday.
