Container Arrangement Toolkit

A special calculator for planning where you will place the containers!

The FLL game planners love to do this: they often make a few of the challenges mutually exclusive - if you do one, you can’t do the others. For this year’s Cargo Connect challenge, the constraints are on the containers.

Each team gets 8 containers (3 in home, 1 on the cargo plane, 3 in sorting center, and 1 in unused capacity). By collecting and placing these in the various destinations, you can get points... BUT each container can only end in one location so you have to be strategic on where you place the containers.

Container Destinations
Where did your containers end up?

Based on what you select above, this table will track the inverse — i.e. which destinations have which containers in the end. This calculates the score for each destination, taking into account that some destinations have a max score (i.e. the M10 Sorting Center and the M15 Load Cargo destinations). Also the M16 Cargo Connect circles get a bonus for having containers and them, and two of the circle have a color match bonus as well. The Total Score is calculated below the table.
