The game for 2008 was named "Just Plane Crazy." Appropriately named, the task issued for the robots in the game was to assemble parts of an aircraft into a single airplane unit, then hang the plane from any of a number of magnets suspended overhead. The task proved nearly impossible for almost all teams, given the equipment provided. Most teams focused on a particular set of tasks and went about repeating that process. No competition team was able to do all of the required steps.
